Product Feature and Application of the Pacifier Test Fixture
Pacifier tester operating requirements:
(1) Protection bracket requirement: Put the pacifier into the center of the opening of the nipple tester and pass the bottom of the device as shown below. Since the pacifier does not have a circular protective bracket, the direction of the main shaft of the protective bracket must be adjusted to the direction of the main axis of the test device opening. Apply tension to the teat in the direction indicated. The pulling force should be applied slowly but not more than 2.0 pounds (8.9 Newtons) per 5 seconds, and maintain a force of 2.0 pounds for 10 seconds. Any pacifier that can be completely pulled out of the opening will be considered unacceptable.
(2) Prominent requirements: Any protrusion from the protective bracket should not exceed 0.63 inches (16 mm).
Record: (1) mark the non-conforming product; (2) record the inspection result in detail on the report.
