PCB revisited near a Ca super fund site
Original poster: "Jim Mora" <jmora@xxxxxxxxxxx>
I appreciated Terry?s PCB comments immensely. Now
that I have all the players in my growing ?road
show?, I have an increased sense of responsibility RE: at educational sites.
When I worked for a School District as I.T.
Manager, we had a bottomless pit where fuel oil
was discovered. The hole kept getting bigger and
bigger. When they got to Virgin soil the tab was $250,000 and climbing. Yikes.
I have tried DR R?s paper burn test as a fist
step on my Raytheon transformer: I took a ½? wide
strip of paper 6? long and submerged a couple of inches,
The oily paper burned vigorously to the paper and
continued to burn with less vigor. During the
burn, the oil gave off copious amounts of black smoke.
Hmm, better than a reluctant burn!!! Do you
suppose it would be worth drawing off some fluid
from the fill plug and running the 50PPM test at this point?
One thing Terry said I will put into practice:
use a containment vessel, perhaps welded PE or a
bed liner surrounded by steel! This will be for
the Geek Mighty Caps, and the three phase
transformer. My dry transformer and generator will be independent.
What is all this? An exploding 8? wire 40-50KV
14+ mf, a 8? coil and dry 14400 transformer,
lastly the DC 12? coil powered by the 3 phase
Raytheon. I have a nice Isuzu C240 industrial
diesel and Genset on a dual axel trailer for
demonstrations. I am hoping to increase interest in Science, Physics, and Math.
I will need a bare minimum of $1,000,000
liability insurance rider just to go on campus.
If the trailer gets in an accident, there better not be any PCB?s.
Thanks one and All,
