Versa-Pac Shipping Container Models VP-55 & VP-110The Versa-Pac Shipping Containers are comprised of 16 Gauge Outer Drums with a reinforcedbolted closure thru the top and a standard 12 gauge closure ring. It is connected to a fixed 10gauge inner containment area and it is closed using twelve ½” bolts and a 1/2” thick top flangewith folding handle. The insulated top plug is welded to the outer lid with 16 gauge sheet metalas the casing. The inner structure uses a patented stiffener system. It is vented to the outsideusing a single 1” Ø acetate plug. The insulation is a combination of ceramic glass fibers on thesides and polyurethane foam plugs in both the top and bottom. It has been designed as areplacement for standard 7A and Type A Fissile transportation packaging. The Criticality SafetyIndex (CSI) is 1.0. 55-Gallon Version – VP-55Inner Containment View Versa-Pac Standard Package Inner ContainmentThe Versa-Pac is designed so that it can be used directly or in conjunction with pails, drums orinserts that can be manufactured to accommodate a variety of smaller containers and vessels. The110 gallon Versa-Pac can accept up to a 30 gallon standard drum within the payload cavity. The
insert simply slides into the fixed inner containment cavity to adjust the inner dimensions. Insertscan also be insulated to provide additional thermal protection and to accommodate a leak testableseal, if needed. 55 Gallon Version 110 Gallon VersionInner Cavity Dimensions: 15” Dia. x 24” High Inner Cavity Dimensions: 21” Dia. x 29-5/8” High Tare Weight: Approx. 370 lbs.
