ASTM D6179 Test Methods for Rough Handling of Unitized Loads and Large Shipping Cases and Crates
Test Methods for Rough Handling of Unitized Loads and Large Shipping Cases and Crates
ASTM D6179 is a test method that covers general handling of unitized loads and large shipping cases or crates to replicate the effects of rough handling within its own distribution environment. This test method is a general guideline to conduct the testing accurately with repeatable procedures. Purple Diamond Testing offers ASTM D6179 Testing as part of our packaging integrity testing services.
ASTM D6179 – Test Methods for Rough Handling of Unitized Loads and Large Shipping Cases and Crates. Can be used to evaluate the performance of how unitized loads and large shipping cases or crates are used to protect their contents from hazards that occur during rough handling and shocks. Not all methods are applicable to a common means of rough handling. Such test variations include multiple drop tests, tip test, tip over test, and rolling test. This test method is used to create general simulation hazards in a laboratory environment that are 100% repeatable.
Achieving ISO 17025 Accreditation is the pinnacle in third-party laboratory testing accreditation. It confirms that the facility has management, quality, and technical systems in place to ensure accurate and reliable analyses.
ISTA is revered as the certification standard for package testing for distribution. ISTA’s Testing Protocol remains a series of testing methodologies and standards well recognized within the packaging community.
A select few companies are authorized by PHMSA as an approved third-party packaging testing laboratory in accordance with Hazardous Materials Regulations, critical to ensuring safe transport of dangerous goods.
