Abstract:

This Performance Oriented Packaging POP test was conducted to ascertain whether the Mk 732 Mod 0 Shipping and Storage Container Drawing 53711-6205246 meets the Packing Group II requirements specified by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49 CFR, Parts 106 through 178, dated 1 October 1992. The packaged commodity used for the test was simulated weight of steel and sand weighing 7.1 kg 13.5 pounds. This represents the current maximum commodity weight. To compensate for future growth variations in commodity andor packaging, 1.4 kg 3.0 pounds were added. Gross weight of the loaded container was 17.0 kg 37.5 pounds. The test results indicate that the container has conformed to the POP requirements.
