ISTA 1H Integrity Testing for Packaged-Products Weighing Over 150 lb (68 kg) Utilizing Random Vibration; ie. ISTA Procedure 1H Packaged Products
Packaged-Products Over 150 lb (68 kg) (Random Vibration)
Overview for ISTA Procedure 1H Packaged Product:
ISTA Procedure 1H Packaged Products is a basic procedure of non-simulation integrity performance testing.
ISTA 1H is a standard test method that outlines procedures for conducting integrity testing on packaged-products weighing over 150 lb. The purpose of this test is to determine if the package is capable of protecting the contents during transportation and handling.
The test involves subjecting the package to different types of forces and conditions that it may encounter during transportation. This includes vibration, shock, compression, and atmospheric testing.
During the test, the package is placed on a test platform and is subjected to a series of drops, vibrations, and compression testing. The package is also subjected to changes in temperature and humidity levels. The package is observed for any signs of damage or deformation, and the contents are inspected to ensure they have remained intact throughout the testing process.
The results of the test are used to evaluate the effectiveness of the packaging for the intended product and transportation method. This information can then be used to make any necessary improvements to the packaging or transportation methods to better protect the products during shipment.
This procedure could be used as a starting point for comparing various package design types. Purple Diamond Testing offers ISTA 1H Testing as part of our packaging distribution testing services.
Rationale for ISTA Procedure 1H Packaged Product:
ISTA 1H – Packaged-Products Over 150 lbs. (68 kg) (Random Vibration). Can be used to compare relative performance of package and product design variations using random vibration and shock tests (drop or incline impact). The procedure is used to create harsh worst-case hazards in a laboratory environment while comparing multiple design variation packaging systems.
