The usual response to the idea of a “harsh environment” is to envision the salt spray of a drilling rig, dirt, grease or debris. But in today’s evolving world of “high tech,” the definition of harsh isn’t always what it used to be. An environment most people would consider far from harsh, almost sterile, can be extremely susceptible to contamination....
