Case Study: Closed-System Chemical Dispensing Enhances Safety & Reduces Overall Operating Expenses
Ensuring the safety and integrity of container contents is an ongoing concern for chemical, pharmaceutical and other companies responsible for processing or handling liquid hazardous materials. When shipping liquids such as paints, lubricants and oils from location to location, its imperative that the containers remain tightly sealed and secure.
Any leaks, seepage or vaporization can critically affect container contents and increase the potential for hazardous chemical and vapor exposure. In the case of highly sensitive manufacturing processes, the presence of even the smallest amount of contamination or foreign material can prove extremely costly.
Perhaps no one is more aware of these demands than Container Technology, Inc., a Santa Barbara, Calif.-based company whose primary business is ensuring that its customers have the highest-quality containers for hazardous chemical transport and end-user dispensing. The company is a leading supplier of liquid containers, drums and extraction systems. Container Technologys high-purity liquids business division specializes in ultra-clean industry specifications for semi-conductor and pharmaceutical companies that must meet particular requirements for materials transport. A second business unit, the general use container division, handles chemicals, paints, lubricants and other materials.
The company ships product all over the world from its warehouse facilities located in the United States, China, Taiwan and Europe. Because it operates in a highly-regulated industry, Container Technology must adhere to U.S. Department of Transportation regulations when sending product via ground transport. When shipping oversees, UN requirements for Hazmat packaging must be met.
