ISTA 3H Mechanically Handled Bulk Transport Containers
Products or Packaged-Products in Mechanically Handled Bulk Transport Containers
ISTA 3H is a general simulation test for mechanically handled bulk loads of the same product or mixed loads. This procedure utilizes general simulation of actual transport hazards by full truckloads that include unitized loads made up of either single or multiple packaged-products. Purple Diamond Testing offers ISTA 3H Testing as part of our packaging distribution testing services.
ISTA 3H – Products or Packaged-Products in Mechanically Handled Bulk Transport Containers. Can be used to evaluate the protective performance of a mechanically handled transport container of the same product or mixed loads related to thermal conditions, shocks, compression, random vibration, and other stressors normally encountered during its distribution cycle. The procedure is used to create general simulation hazards in a regulated laboratory environment that is 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.
