Abstract:

This Performance Oriented Packaging POP test was conducted to ascertain whether the Mk 729 Mod 0 Shipping and Storage Container Drawing 5619402 meets the Packing Group 11 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 Mk 122 Mod 0 Warhead weighing 74 kg 163 pounds. This represents the current maximum commodity weight. To compensate for future growth variations in commodity andor packaging, 31 kg 68 pounds were added. Gross weight of the loaded container was 133 kg 293 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 740 Mod 0 Drawing 5624153 and Mk 741 Mod 0 Drawing 5624152 Shipping and Storage Containers as per the variation in Title 49 CFR 107, See. 178.601 h. POP Test of Mk 729 Mod 0, Mk 740 Mod 0, and Mk 741 Mod 0 Shipping and Storage Containers.
