Awtm ISO standards may not meet the requirements for this test method. We can create custom platens to your required specimen size. ASTM D tests the compressive resistance of shipping containers including boxes and drums and components. Link to Active This link will astm d642 route to the astm d642 Active version of the standard.
The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below x642 referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Give one of our engineers a call today and they can help guide you through astm d642 ASTM D test process with the best machine configuration for astm d642 requirements. The Series Universal Test Machine asm a common choice for this standard, and specifically the Family are best for wide column spacing for large boxes, crates and pallets.
Compression Strength Testing Compressive Test | ASTM D
Our engineers are familiar with ASTM D astk can help guide you through the testing process, but we recommend you purchase and read the official ASTM standard to achieve the astm d642 results. However, a fixed-head compression machine is required to perform edge-to-edge and corner-to-corner orientations on test specimens see Astm d642 2.
Astm d642 best platen choice would be the TestResources G with an upper bearing. D Terminology of Packaging and Distribution Environments.
Specimens for ASTM D should 6d42 the full shipping container prepared in the same way that it will be used for packing and shipping. A or Series Universal Test Machine would be a good choice for smaller boxes and crates. Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available astm d642 request Platen diameters available from 56 mm to mm xstm. The procedure may be used for measuring the ability of the container to astm d642 external compressive loads applied to its astm d642, to diagonally opposite edges, or to corners Fig.
This test method covers testing of multiple containers or unit loads, in addition to individual shipping containers, aatm, materials, or combination thereof. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety astm d642 health astm d642 and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Compression Strength Testing
Speak with one of our fixture specialists to learn more about our compression platens. ASTM D can be used to test packaging astm d642 along opposite edges or top to bottom. Testing packing components for compressive strength is needed to help guarantee the protection of the products inside them.
Both platens need to be large enough to completely cover each astm d642 of the specimen.
We’re ready to help! Force range of 5 kN to kN 1, lbf tolbf Adjustable test space The most popular choice for static astm d642 and compression tests These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models. Our engineers recommend that you pair your astm d642 test machine with an upper platen astm d642 with a spherical bearing to ensure even distribution of load.
G Spherical Seat Compression Platens. Your compression test machine choice will depend on the maximum specimen size that you need to test. Test Procedure Select a sample size and condition each astm d642 as indicated Carefully center the specimen on the bottom compression platen Slowly bring the top platen into contact with the specimen Apply the desired astm d642 Make sure your system is set to specimen deformation Begin to apply load at the constant rate indicated in the specification Continue test until failure or specified load Repeat this procedure with each specimen.
Also, unit loads are generally tested only in the top-to-bottom orientation.
ASTM D Test Method for Determining Compressive Resistance of Shipping Containers
Users can choose to test with fixed or spherical astm d642. ASTM D is a testing standard designed to measure the compressive strength or resistance of shipping containers and parts.
Compressive resistance is one of the properties used to evaluate the ability of shipping containers, components, and unit loads to successfully survive the compressive forces they are subjected to during storage and distribution. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. How to Build a New Test. When you are ready to perform this test, please refer astm d642 and follow the exact specifications in the official ASTM Astm d642 document.
The lower platen should be rigid, such astm d642 the G23 Compression Platen this platen is required for edge or corner testing. Fixed-platen machines generally cause corrugated box specimens to fail at their strongest point, while swivel-platen machines cause corrugated box specimens to fail at their weakest point.
Standard load ratings up to kN 67, lbf ; higher ratings available upon request Platen diameters from 56 mm to mm 2.
