Medical sharps bin puncture resistance

27 June 2019

Customised engineering example

International standards (ASTM F2132, BS 7320) specify the puncture resistance of medical sharps containers. By using a programmable tension/compression tester to get real sharps to puncture samples taken from containers, it is possible to obtain repeatable and reliable test results.

Mecmesin designed and provided an attachment featuring a Luer hub fitting to connect hypodermic needles of various designs to a loadcell. A tubular sample holder allowed full penetration of the container wall without distorting the material, which would have adversely affected the results.
