TIPTON, PA, October 6, 2010 -- -- New Pig Corporation has recently introduced PIGâ„¢ Transformer Containment Bags. The first-of-their-kind Containment Bags are designed exclusively for the safe transport of PCBs and mineral oils. High-capacity straps offer safe lifting up to 4800 pounds for transport on diamond plate truck beds without fear of Bag rips or wear.
To provide ultimate weather, puncture and tear protection while transporting leaky transformers, the Bags are constructed of watertight nylon and polyethylene sandwiched between durable woven polypropylene. In addition, three integrated FAT MAT® pads absorb any mineral oil and PCB leaks and splashes as well as cushion and prevent radiator fin poke through.
The Containment Bag's design allows for easy loading and safe lifting using a hoist or forklift. A pull-up duffel sleeve covers the entire Transformer and cinches tight to help keep liquid in and debris and rainwater out. And sewn-in Tyvek® tags let users record tracking information.
Available in both pole- and pad-mount versions and in several sizes, UN-rated PIGâ„¢ Transformer Containment Bags meet Packing Group II standards for the safe transport of PCBs. PIGâ„¢ Transformer Containment Bags aid in compliance with 40 CFR 112.7 and 40 CFR 122.26.
