HomeTransport Simulation Lab


Hemshell Services Transport Simulation laboratory tests packages and packaged products against all kinds of physical distribution hazards from manufacturing site till point of sale. Thermal Shock vacuum pressure testing would help evaluation of shipping containers subjected to thermal and pressure challenges during Distribution. Hemshell Services transport simulation lab would help reduce shipment damage, troubleshoot
packaging design errors and supply chain issues, identify cost reduction opportunities, meet sustainability requirements and more.

Unique Facility for high altitude testing with realistic pressure and temperature

challenges We have installed unique custom-built Altitude Test Chamber for subjecting packages to simultaneous challenge of temperature and low-pressure altitude conditions. Altitude Chamber allows users to control the test chamber temperature between 2 to 8 Deg. cel. or 23 deg. cels. while subjecting the product under test to various levels of altitude pressures from sea level to 50,000 feet above sea level. This combination of elements allows precise simulation of real-life conditions a product might encounter at various altitude levels.

Features for Altitude Chamber

  • Temperature ranges from 2° to 8°C and 23 deg. cels.
  • Altitude ranges from ground to 50,000 feet.
  • Software controlled altitude and temp cycles adhering to ASTM D6653 as well customised requirements for sensitive products used in Pharma / medical devise industry.

Unique Electromagnetic 3500 Kgf capacity Random Vibration Machine:

Random vibration testing is an excellent general-purpose tool for
environmental vibration simulation. It is possible to create more
precise, and realistic challenge profiles with the technology employed in the random vibration equipment installed . This equipment is fully controlled by built in controller hooked to PC software for subjecting samples to deferent test profiles.

Features of Random Vibration Machine:

  • It can operate X, Y, Z direction & fully programmable for shock Test/Random Vibration/Sine Vibration/bump tests/Customised Vibration.
  • 3500kg load capacity.
  • Bump testing Facility in Positive & Negative direction.

In addition lab has all other equipments needed to comply
needs of ASTM D4169 to carry out tests for various
distribution cycles.
