Container Compression Test

What is Container Compression Testing?

Container compression testing is a method for determining the behaviour of packaging and or products under a crushing or compressive force. Compression testing is used in both package and product design verification to determine the strength of their performance under compressive loads.

This testing is intended to recreate compressive loads that may occur during warehouse storage or vehicle transport.

Why do Compression Testing?

Important in both package and product design verification to determine their performance under compressive loads.

The data generated should provide enough information to:

  • Minimize damage costs and assure you that the products packaging will be adequate to give high levels of protection for worldwide distribution
  • Determine if the packaging being used will withstand being stacked and also to what height it can be stacked without damage

Why work with Anecto for Compression Testing?

Anecto’s compressive testing is carried out in our ISO 17025 accredited Test Laboratory using our in-house compression tester. During the test, the package is compressed and the force applied versus the rate of deformation is recorded. The required loading must take into consideration the effects of length of time in storage, the stacking alignment, package or pallet weight and stacking height.

Working with us, our series of compression tests will effectively minimise damage costs and assure you that your products packaging will be adequate to give high levels of protection for worldwide distribution.

Our results will determine if the packaging being used will withstand being stacked and also to what height it can be stacked without damage.

Guidance Documents/Standards:

  • ISO 11607
  • ASTM D642 – Standard Test Method for Determining Compressive Resistance of Shipping Containers, Components, and Unit Loads.
