ISO 80369 Annex E | Small-Bore Connectors | Axial-Torsion Testing
ISO 80369 is a series of standard test methods intended to evaluate the performance requirements for small-bore connectors for liquids and gases in medical applications. Each of the annexes within the testing standard describe specific test procedures for evaluating the mechanical properties of small-bore connectors. These annexes allow modification to test conditions as necessary for each application.
Annex E – Principle: A connector is securely assembled to an appropriate reference connector and the connection is evaluated for stress cracking by demonstrating that it properly seals utilizing the leak test.
The standard includes test methods that are derived from ISO 594 with some changes to methods that contained subjective acceptance criteria. It is recommended to read the entire specification in the relevant ISO publication prior to running any of the annexes.
