How Environmental Stress Screening Reduces Potential Field Failures?
Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) refers to a testing process involving subjecting a newly assembled or manufactured product, usually an electronic, to environmental stresses. This series of testing is important for the purpose of identifying and eliminating the latent defects of an electronic product that are usually introduced during the product manufacturing process.
Design Engineers use various tools that instrumental in safety planning, installation, execution and operation of the entire plastic piping systems.
One such vital tool is the service life prediction or estimation tool that ensures the safety and efficiency of the entire process of the piping system.
Environmental testing refers to the measurement of performance of equipment under specified environmental conditions such as large, swift variations in temperature, solar radiations, extremely high or low humidity, corrosive conditions, among others which I will focus on later in details.
What is Thermal Shock Test?
The adaptability of a product towards the rapid and extreme variation in temperature will need to undergo a test for its durability called the Thermal Shock Test.
Any kind of product or equipment could be exposed to contrasting weather conditions, either too hot or too cold.
There are a variety of corrosion tests out there that are used to measure the durability of protective coatings. However, in this article, we focus on the Salt Spray Test. This test produces a corrosive attack aimed at coated samples so as to evaluate the suitability of the specific coating for use.
How Long Do I Have to Carry Out Accelerated Weathering Testing to Simulate X Years of Outdoor Exposure?
Your outdoor furniture, the exterior of your house and the fencing or other outdoor elements of the house may get damage and effect due to the external weather conditions. Effects of weather on these external elements of your house are determined by accelerated weathering testing. The testing is done using a weatherometer and is used in the process of UV aging in several industries. Test equipment such as Xenon arc chamber, UV chamber and Carbon arc chamber are classified as weatherometer.
Organic materials such as plastics, inks and coatings are usually damaged by exposure to light and weathering. This is the primary reason why accelerated weathering and light stability testers are widely used for material certification, quality control and also for research and development. The results produced by these testers are usually reproducible and fast. The xenon arc test chamber and the fluorescent UV (QUV) accelerated weathering tester are some of the most commonly used accelerated weathering testers. But despite being the most frequently used testers they are based on approaches which are different.
MyHIJAU Mark is a official green recognition endorsed by the government of Malaysia. It is an initiative embarked by Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (GreenTech Malaysia) to promote the sourcing and purchasing of green products and services in Malaysia. Its aim is to encourage the adoption of environmentally friendly practices in the country, while catalysing the growth of Malaysian’s green economy.
