This procedure evaluates the performance of a bottle when the container is pressurized to very high levels. Failure location reveals weak areas of the bottle.
Bottles are pressurized with air and water in the AGR PPT burst testing device. Pressure is added until the bottle fails or the testing limits are met. The PPT burst tester can be programmed to run many different pressure profiles from quick jumps to elevated pressures with hold times. Profiles can also be created for cycle testing and step pressure increases.
