7A Type A Containers
We offer over twenty-five different certified 7A Type A, IP-2 and IP-3 container designs as well as several 7A Type A Fissile rated containers. MSDF routinely provides custom built containers as well. Our containers are designed to adhere to the Nevada National Security Site(NNSS) requirements for waste acceptance and offer quality and performance exceeding regulatory requirements. Custom 7A Type A containers can be designed by our in house design department utilizing both SolidWorks 3D Modeling software and AutoCAD. We often model the specific item being shipped, as well as the container, to better study the best method of accessing and loading the final package. This helps to bring about challenges that maybe encountered in the field by the operations team tasked with preparing the shipment. Once the challenges are identified, we are able to look at specific design changes and improvements to produce a better overall container. The results are safer, more efficient handling of the package, lower shipping rates and reduced storage and disposal cost.
