MagneTek's PCB Testing

Ensures EPA Compliance

The testing of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB's) has become an important consideration for electrical equipment and environmental man- agers because of strict Environmental Protection

Agency (EPA) regulations. MagneTek, of Louis- ville, Ohio, offers an extensive PCB testing program, from the field sampling of electrical equipment insulating fluid to the disposal of samples at EPA approved facilities. Test samples can also be mailed-in to the company for analysis.

PCB contamination level testing is the first step in identifying regulatory requirements for maintenance, repair, record keeping and dis- posal. Awareness of contamination levels also gives managers the ability to make reliable deci- sions regarding repair/replacement or disposal due to equipment failure or oil spill.

The manufacturing arm of MagneTek, based in Los Angeles, produces electrical products and services including: lighting ballasts and trans- formers; motors and controls; electronic adjustable frequency drives; power conversion systems; large special motors (to 30,000 hp) and generators; and power transformers to 100 mega- watts. MagneTek also repairs and rebuilds motors, generators and transformers for utility and industrial customers.
