Abstract:

Qualification tests were performed to determine whether the in- service Mk 14 Mod 3 Cartridge Tank could be utilized to contain properly dunnaged solid type hazardous materials weighing up to a gross weight of 18.6 kg 41 pounds. The tests were conducted in accordance with Performance Oriented Packaging POP requirements specified by the United Nations Recommendation on the Transportation of Dangerous Goods and the Department of Transportations Title 49 CFR and the Final Rulings published in the Federal Register, Vol. 55 on 21 Dec 90. The tank has conformed to the POP performance requirements i.e., the tank successfully retained its contents throughout the specified tests. In addition, due to their similarities in size and weight, this test is considered representative of qualification testing for the Mk 15 Mod O Cartridge Tanks as per the variation in the Federal Register 21 Feb 91 and page 52724, para 178. 60lh of the Final Rulings specified in the Department of Transportations Performance Oriented Packaging Standards in the Federal Register, Vol. 55.
