What is Altitude Testing?
Altitude Testing is intended to provide for the anticipated reduction in air pressure when products and packages, that may be sensitive to low pressure environments, are transported by air or by road over areas of high altitude.
At Anecto, a vacuum chamber is used for Altitude Testing to simulate changes in air pressure. During an altitude test, conditions within the chamber mean products or packaging under test can fracture or even explode when the air pressure is low.
Sealed liquid containers or non-porous/non-breathable packages in particular may be adversely affected by high altitude environments.
Testing at Anecto is in compliance with ASTM D6653.
- ISO 11607
- ASTM D6653 – Standard Test Methods for Determining the Effects of High Altitude on Packaging Systems by Vacuum Method
