Compression Simulator

Designed for testing compressive strength of packaging and creep performance. Performs the compression test of shipping containers, pallets and unit loads, according with the ASTM and ISTA international standards.

Compression Simulator features:

The compression simulator can assay a precise compression force of 50KN for individual package and can also reach up to 200KN for complete loads. It can reproduce compressive strength in packaging at different temperatures (-10ºC to 65ºC) and up to 98% of relative humidity, according to international standards:

EN 15552:2008 Packaging: Complete, fillet transport packages and unit loads. Performance testing schedules for common distribution chains.

> ASTM D4169-16 Standard practice for performance testing of shipping containers and systems.

> ISTA Procedures 1C, D; 2A, B; F, H; 4 Series; 6-FEDEX; 6-SAMSCLUB, 6-AMAZON.COM.
