Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX the study does not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil in unlikely.1,1 DPE is a 60-80% w/w component of a capacitor fluid contained in “ready-to-use” industrial products like Faradol 810 and SAS 60. These capacitor fluids will be used in high voltage power capacitors.The capacitors are hermetically sealed within a tank constructed of stainless steel and are fully welded. Connections pass through porcelain insulators. Normal operating temperatures do not exceed 30°C above ambient temperatures. High voltage capacitors will be protected with fuses or other methods to avoid the possibility of case rupture due to a fault occurring. Overall, leakage from capacitors will be extremely rare and stringent quality control standards will be maintained during manufacture.
