124Regulation Description:

(1)This shipping name applies to electric double layer capacitors if the energy storage capacity of each capacitor, calculated using the nominal voltage and capacitance, is greater than 0.3 Wh.

(2)A capacitor must

(a)be transported in an uncharged state, if it is not installed in equipment;

(b)be transported in an uncharged state or be protected against short circuit, if it is installed in equipment; and

(c)be marked with the energy storage capacity in Wh, if it was manufactured after December 31, 2013.

(3)When the energy storage capacity of a capacitor is less than or equal to 10 Wh, the capacitor must, when it is in transport and when it is in a module in transport, be protected against short circuit or fitted with a metal strap connecting the terminals.

(4)When the energy storage capacity of a capacitor is greater than 10 Wh, the capacitor must, when it is in transport and when it is in a module in transport, be fitted with a metal strap connecting the terminals.

(5)A capacitor containing dangerous goods must be designed to withstand a 95 kPa pressure differential.

(6)A capacitor must be designed and constructed so that any pressure that may build up in use may be safely relieved through a vent or a weak point in the capacitor casing. Any liquid that is released upon venting must be contained by the means of containment containing the capacitor or by the equipment in which the capacitor is installed.

(7)These Regulations, except for Part 1 (Coming into Force, Repeal, Interpretation, General Provisions and Special Cases) and Part 2 (Classification), do not apply to

(a)a capacitor that contains an electrolyte that does not meet the criteria for inclusion in any class of dangerous goods;

(b)a capacitor that contains an electrolyte that meets the criteria for inclusion in a class of dangerous goods, that has an energy storage capacity of 10 Wh or less, and that is capable of withstanding a 1.2 m drop test on an unyielding surface, unpackaged, without loss of contents; or

(c)a capacitor that is installed in equipment and contains an electrolyte that meets the criteria for inclusion in a class of dangerous goods, if the equipment is in a means of containment that is designed, constructed, filled, closed and secured so that under normal conditions of transport, including handling, there will be no accidental functioning of the capacitor or release of the dangerous goods that could endanger public safety.

(8)Large equipment containing a capacitor may be transported without a means of containment or on pallets, if the capacitor is afforded equivalent protected by the equipment in which it is contained.

(a)the dangerous goods are classified and authorized in accordance with the "Explosives Regulations, 2013";

(b) the dangerous goods are contained in inner means of containment that are placed in a strong outer means of containment designed, constructed, filled, closed, secured and maintained so that under normal conditions of transport, including handling, there will be no accidental release of the dangerous goods that could endanger public safety;

(c)each inner means of containment has a gross mass less than or equal to 5 kg;

(d)the outer means of containment has a gross mass less than or equal to 30 kg; and

(e)the outermeans of containment, as presented for transport, is capable of passing a test in accordance with Test Series 6(d) of Part I of the Manual of Tests and Criteria.
