Dust Test

We perform standard dust tests to analyse the effect of dust and sand on automobile components. We have three dust test chambers for examining dustproofness, contamination, surface resistance and operability of objects under the influence of dust.

Our facilities can be used for IP protection tests according to DIN 40050, IEC EN 60529 and ISO 20653 as well as tests according to various manufacturer-specific standards.

Dust test chamber for IP protection tests

A specified volume of dust is distributed in the test chamber through agitation and allowed to settle on the test item. A vacuum can be generated in the test item for extreme dustproofness testing.
