Abstract:

Qualifications tests were performed to determine whether the in- service Mk 588 shipping and storage drum could be utilized to contain properly dunnaged solid type hazardous materials weighing up to a gross weight of 14 kg 31 pounds. The tests were conducted in accordance with Performance Oriented Packaging POP requirements specified by the United Nations Recommendations on the Transportation of Dangerous Goods and the Department of Transportations Title 49 CFR and the Final Rulings published in the Federal Register. The drum has conformed to the POP performance requirements i.e., the drum successfully retained its contents throughout the vibration, stacking and drop tests.
