Stationary Environmental Test Chambers (Blowing Sand & Dust)

Designed to meet and exceed the specifications set by the MIL-STD-810F by a factor of 100 in order to simulate desert environments for the testing of equipment and devices. The Desert Wind™ sand/dust test chamber is ideal for those striving to meet MIL-STD-810F standards in the testing and certification of a manufactured device or laboratories that require certification of a device.

Desert Wind™ Portable Environmental Test Chambers (Blowing Sand & Dust)

The accuracy and consistency of the stationary Desert Wind™ is reconfigured into the Portable Test Rig for mobile testing on items too large for a indoor unit. Take the Portable Test Rig to the optimal location for your test environment. Additional modular attachments are available to meet specific test requirements such as the MIL-STD-810G. Call to find out details and discuss your application.

For years the United States Military and Commercial Manufacturers have been seeking the capability to simulate the conditions or environment found in the Desert. Conflict in desert areas require personnel and support equipment to operate in harsh environments. The demands of the environment require specialized equipment to simulate the deleterious effects of operating and storing equipment in the deserts of the world.

Until now, there has not been an environmental simulator that can provide real-time recorded outputs of each critical parameter of a blowing sand or blowing dust environmental simulator. The shortfalls are typically in the area of particle concentration, particle velocity, particle distribution and air velocity at the test chamber cross-sectional opening. Current equipment offered that comprises a closed loop with particulate circulating through the air mover yields itself to non-repeatability. This means the dust or sand concentration and particle distribution into the test chamber is continuously variable.


This shortfall in design points to the disclaimer in the FOREWORD section of the MIL-STD-810F document.  “Therefore users should not assume that a system or component that passes laboratory tests of this standard also would pass field/fleet verification trials.” Of course this is true, if we lack quantification, then our test results are not predictable or repeatable. In essence, we run a different test each time.


Air Dynamics can provide real-time data of each key test parameter while conducting the blowing dust and blowing sand test. This allows our systems the capability of repeatable testing for MIL-STD-810F, Method 510.4 that moves us towards predictive failure testing and analysis. Air Dynamics Industrial Systems Corporation Designs, Manufactures and Installs the Desert Wind™ Blowing Sand and Dust Test Chamber in both portable and stationary configurations.
