Abstract : This Performance Oriented Packaging (POP) test was conducted to ascertain whether the Mk 5 Mod 13/50 Cartridge Tank 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 a simulated load weighing 13 kg (28 pounds). This represents the current maximum commodity weight. Gross weight of the loaded tank was 16 kg (35 pounds). The test results indicate that the tank 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 5 Mods 0, 23/50 Cartridge Tanks as per the variation in Title 49 CFR, Sec. 178.601 (h).
