Explosive Atmospheres Testing for Defence

Helicopter re- fuelling
TRaC works with manufacturers to produce and design equipment that can operate in fuel-air explosive atmospheres commonly found with aircraft, vehicle and marine fuels.

We commonly conduct explosive atmosphere tests for military applications on sub-assemblies and smaller items of equipment (<1meter┬│). We can assist defence manufacturers with the test of MIL-STD 810F METHOD 511.5, which is performed to demonstrate the ability of equipment to operate in fuel-air explosive atmospheres without causing ignition.

This method applies to all equipment designed for use in the vicinity of fuel-air explosive atmospheres associated with aircraft, automotive, and marine fuels at ground/sea level.
