Sealed medical packaging will expand during shipment by air or shipment by truck at high altitudes. The expanded packaging can abrade during vibration because of how it contacts adjacent packages or packaging materials. This abrasion can cause loss of sterility. Simultaneous altitude and vibration testing is essential for sealed medical packaging in order to assure maintenance of sterility during air or high altitude ground transportation.
Quest has been performing simultaneous altitude and vibration testing for many years. We now have a very large hydraulic transportation vibration simulator that can perform all standard shipping vibration tests, and we have combined it with a cylindrical altitude chamber with interior dimensions of 41″ in height and 26″ in diameter. This capability greatly exceeds that of our competitors.
