The Dugway Metal Shop recently completed the manufacture of 15 acrylic boxes containing a sensor that will count the number and size of chemical agent droplets in a new test fixture.
Seven acrylic boxes will each be connected to the Liquid Aerosol Detector Fixture (LADF) by a clear tube to a central manifold dispensing the agent. The LADF is undergoing testing with the boxes to ensure it functions as required before detectors are tested.
The boxes will provide a sealed pathway for the droplets to follow from the droplet generator to a carbon filter, where they end their journey. Data will be analyzed to determine how well the LADF controls the droplets it distributes.
