Immersion Testing

MIL-STD-810, Method 512

The purpose of Immersion Testing is to determine if an item can be partially or fully immersed in water and then perform as designed – either under water of after immersion. During the testing process, the test item is typically attached to a heavy plate and immersed to the required depth.

Dayton T. Brown, Inc. has conducted specialized Immersion Testing on hybrid and electric vehicles to verify the operation of onboard systems in the event that the vehicle is immersed in conductive sea water.

We have 4 immersion tanks available that meet the following criteria:

  • Main facility measures 4 ft. (dia.) x 5 ft.
  • Large facility measures 8 ft. (dia.) x 5 ft. – larger tanks can be provided to accommodate larger test items, if required
  • Ability to pressurize the facilities to simulate deeper depths

DTB meets the following requirements for Immersion Testing:
