Electrical contacts are subject to damage by interaction with silicone oils. These oils, which can cause catastrophic failure of electrical contacts, can arise as vapors or aerosols from components of the environment in which the contacts operate. To assess the potential environmental burden of silicones which could be transferred from source to sink (electrical contact), an aerosol sampling methodology was developed which collects silicone-bearing aerosols. These aerosols, collected with… CONTINUE READING
