Mississippi, USA, June 27, 2016 — Today, Seraphim Solar (“Seraphim”), one of the highest-rated, world-class solar module manufacturers, with 1.9GW solar panel manufacturing capabilities in U.S.A. and China, announces that it has received the Dust and Sand Test certification for photovoltaic (PV) modules, which was issued by the world leading third party certification agency TUV SÜD group (“TÜV SÜD “).
When PV modules are installed in extreme environments, sand and dust abrasion may have some impact on the surface of the glass, backsheet as well as the junction box of PV modules. Sand and dust tests mainly relates to dust composition, sand and dust density, particle size, wind speed, test temperature, humidity, and test duration. The simulation tests of severe sandstorm erosion, play a vital role in understanding the solar modules’ reliability and durability in a real environment.
‘More and more Seraphim modules are being installed in desert environments. This means that our modules have to withstand high-speed dust abrasion and surface impact. Obtaining the Sand and Dust certification ensures the applicability and durability of our solar modules under extreme environments such as the desert environment. We are very proud of our solar modules and their test results in a series of rigorous testing conducted by TÜV SÜD.’ commented Justin Xi, Executive Manager of Seraphim Solar.
‘TÜV SÜD is committed to delivering quality service for photovoltaic industry as a third party certification body and establishing the confidence of photovoltaic products long-term reliability. ‘TÜV SÜD PV Operation Director of China and Chief Visa Officer Zhang Zhu Lin said, ’Sand and dust test certificates issued by the TÜV SÜD, ensures the high quality of the modules installed in the desert environments and provides the customers’ long-term returns.’
