This hazardous material packaging is so effective at eliminating risk that the U.S. Department of Transportation (D.O.T). has authorized its use in transporting such hazardous materials without the “Toxic/Poison” label. The use of this “Exempt Pack” allows you to ship the following dangerous goods and chemicals with quantity limits not exceeding one liter for liquids or 2.85 kilograms (6 1/4 pounds) for:
- flammable liquids
- flammable solids
- organic peroxides
- pyrophoric materials
- toxic materials
- self-heating materials
- corrosive materials
- dangerous when wet materials
- miscellaneous hazardous materials
As a DOT Exempt 8249 packaging manufacturer, LPS Industries ensures that DOT-SP 8249 hazardous material packaging has been tested in accordance with 49 CFR 178.601 Variation (2). Which means that different primary containers can be used without re-testing the outer packaging. The outer packaging bears the 4GV markings. However, in order to comply, the maximum gross weight limitations cannot be exceeded. In addition, this hazardous material packaging consists of the following components along with complete instructions for assembly:
- 1 multiple friction can and 1 locking ring for package #2 only
- 1 interior zippered bag
- 1 interior 275# corrugated single-walled carton
- 1 exterior zippered bag
- 1 exterior 350# corrugated double-walled carton
Furthermore, package #2 and #2A come complete as single-pack sets. Exterior cartons are available for shipping two or four single packs together. When shipping liquids, pyrophoric solids or dangerous when wet materials, package #2 (liquid pack) must be used.
As a trusted DOT Exempt 8249 packaging manufacturer, LPS Industries provides the exact primary container tested in the pack and authorized for use. Contact us today for all your hazardous material packaging needs or questions.
