Mechanical Impact Testing

The WHA mechanical impact test system can evaluate the impact effects on mechanical and pneumatic components. The system is capable of delivering impact energies up to 300 ft.lbf and is located in a test cell that allows impacting pressurized components. See Mechanical Impact Testing of Medical Oxygen Cylinders. Some compressed gas component standards require mechanical impact testing for medical post-style cylinder valves in CGA V-9 and industrial cylinder valves.
