ISTA 7E Thermal Transport Packaging Used in Parcel Delivery System
Testing Standard for Thermal Transport Packaging Used in Parcel Delivery System Shipment
ISTA 7E is a simulation test that evaluates the effects of external temperature exposures for packaged-products being transported in a small parcel environment. This procedure can be used for general testing and in the qualification of insulated shipping containers. Purple Diamond Testing offers ISTA 7E Testing as part of our cold chain testing and validation services.
ISTA 7E – Testing Standard for Thermal Transport Packaging Used in Parcel Delivery System Shipment. Can be used to compare performance of thermal packaging for design variations. ISTA 7E temperature profiles are based on “real world” measurements made in the parcel shipping environment. The procedure is used to create harsh worst-case thermal hazards in a laboratory environment while comparing or qualifying multiple design variations of thermal packaging systems.
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.
