PacTec designed the transformer containment bags for the very purpose of containing any leaks from oils or PCBs. As such, these bags are fully lined with a nonwoven polymeric material to absorb any liquids, whereas many other options on the market only have absorbent on the bottom of the bag.
This bag has been sized to accommodate pole-Mounted Transformers (37.5 kVA, 50 kVA and Small 75 kVA). They are also the ideal size for 55-gallon drums and smaller, which many customers are using for spent carbon and other wastes that fall under the “Y” UN Rating for Pkg Group II for the safe transport of PCB’s.
Currently, PacTec only offers the cylindrical bag design. We have not received much demand for pad-mount transformer sizes, however, we can custom manufacture one for you. Simply reach out to our team of professionals for a consultation.
Given their size and UN-rating, this bag is suitable for a wide range of items and waste aside from transformers. Many of our customers use them for corroded drum overpacking, for spent fuel canisters or carbon, even for mechanical parts and engines.
PacTec’s transformer containment bags are indeed UN rated “Y” for Pkg Group II for the safe transport of PCB’s and are DOT compliant. They have gone through rigorous testing to meet this certification level and adhere to our strict quality program.
Metal drums are an alternative to these transformer bags, but drums pose certain challenges, including their cost, handling difficulty, lack of absorbent and strapping for ease of lifting.
