February 16, 2022

Applications include MLI blankets that protect satellite components

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., February 16, 2022—Satellite manufacturers in need of exceptionally high levels of foreign object debris (FOD) protection in multi-layer insulation (MLI) blankets can now acquire it via Web Industries’ new MLI blanket cleaning service.

The service meets the IEST-STD-CC1246* standard. It is recommended for Web Industries’ MLI blankets used in satellite applications where FOD, such as dirt, grease, human sweat or oils, could seriously impact a satellite component’s performance. An example: satellite camera functionality can be impaired if FOD or other contaminants outgas during launch and deployment, occluding the camera lens.

The specialized MLI blanket cleaning service is an option for MLI customers who require exceptional levels of disinfection and cleanliness. Web Industries engaged an industrial hygiene specialist to help implement optimal, safe cleaning procedures at its Denton, Texas, MLI blanket manufacturing facility. These include use of isopropyl alcohol for chemically cleansing MLI blankets.
