ASTM D4169-22 Performance Testing of Shipping Containers and Systems

ASTM D4169-22 Performance Testing of Shipping Containers and Systems

ASTM D4169-22 test method determines the characteristics of shipping containers by observing their performance in different environments. The specimen is exposed to various hazards and its durability is checked. The final results of this method are displayed keeping in view the international standards and inch-pound units.

    Scope:

    ASTM D4169-22 test method covers the exposure of shipping containers and systems to varied environments. This method determines their response to various environmental hazards and indications for their improvement are given. The results aid in the research, quality check, performance evaluation, and improvement of the materials. The method is intended to ensure the safe delivery of products to their customers.

    Procedure:

    In ASTM D4169-22 the dimensions of the shipping unit are determined and the specimen undergoes testing depending upon the pre-determined tolerance level. The distribution cycle is selected and the acceptance criterion is determined towards its end. Tests plans are devised and the specimen undergoes the performance tests. The results are recorded, evaluated, and documented as per the globally accepted standards. 

    Specimen Size:

    Specimen size should be as per the requirements. In this case, the specimen having a diameter over 60 in. (1.52 m) and a gross weight of 100 lb (45 kg) or less are used.

    Data:

    The method covers the certification, sampling, testing, and inspection of the specimen within the set limits. 

    Conclusion:

    ASTM D4169-22 test method is specifically important for the quality assurance and durability check of shipping containers. This ensures the safe shipment of products and saves the cost of any damage.
