Section 24 – Icing

Purpose of the Test

These tests determine performance characteristics for equipment that must operate when exposed to icing conditions that would be encountered under conditions of rapid changes in temperature, altitude, and humidity.

This section does not cover ice accumulations on external surfaces, or flight into “icing conditions”.

The tests in this section are “susceptibility” tests, meaning the units being tested are the “victims” of the environment.

Our facilities have full DO-160G capabilities for categories A and C (with exception to category B)

Our facilities include:

  • Tenny 27 cu.ft Temp/Humidity/Altitude
  • Tenny 16 cu.ft Temp/Humidity
  • Thermotron 37 cu.ft Temp/Humidity
  • Large 12’Wx10’Hx48’L (-40F to +150F) Temp chamber
