July 21 -- Every year, @Ford does 300 different odor tests for the parts and materials of car models ready for production. There are currently 18 odor testers in the smell testing lab of Ford’s Asian Pacific headquarters. The odor testers (shown in pics) must be non-smokers without allergies or nasal conditions. The testers are forbidden from wearing perfume, nail polish or leather jackets. They are not allowed to use any strongly-scented shampoo, as doing so could affect their sense of smell. To test the odor of the car materials, the testers take a small sample of fabrics and put them in mason jars. The testers put them in the oven and heat them to up to 176 degree Fahrenheit. Sometimes, the testers add water to the mason jars to simulate humidity. By doing these odor tests, Ford is trying to eliminate unpleasant odors in the developing stage. #Ford #cars #car #odortester #science #career #China #Nanjing #YicaiGlobal
