Abstract : This Performance Oriented Packaging (POP) test was conducted to ascertain whether the Mk 684 Mod 0 Shipping and Storage Container meets the Packing Group II requirements specified by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 CFR, Parts 107 through 178, dated 31 December 1991. The packaged commodity used for the test was one inert Mk 45 Mod 9 Mass Mock Up weighing 49 kg (107 pounds). This represents the current maximum commodity weight. To compensate for future growth variations in commodity and/or packaging, 6 kg (13 pounds) were added. Gross weight of the loaded container was 67 kg (147 pounds). The test results indicate that the container has conformed to the POP requirements. In addition, due to their similarities in design, size, and weight, this test is considered representative of qualification testing for the Mk 460 Mods 0, 2, 3, 4, Mk 510 Mod 0, and Mk 683 Mod 0 Shipping and Storage Containers as per the variation in Title 49 CFR 107, Sec. 178.601h.
