These tests determine whether equipment material is adversely affected by fungi under conditions favorable for their development,
namely, high humidity, warm atmosphere, and presence of inorganic salts.
In many cases, the tests in this section apply more to the material than to the functioning unit. In these cases, a material test alone may suffice.
Analysis to show that the material does not have any nutrients to support fungal growth may also be a viable alternative to testing.
The tests in this section are “susceptibility” tests, meaning the units being tested are the “victims” of the environment.
Our facilities are available to coordinate with other sources to provide complete testing services.
