144Regulation Description:

(1)All asymmetric capacitors assigned to this shipping name must meet the following conditions:

(a)capacitors or modules are protected against short circuit;

(b)capacitors are 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, and any liquid that is released upon venting is contained by packaging or by the equipment in which the capacitors are installed;

(c)capacitors manufactured after December 31, 2015 are marked with the energy storage capacity in Wh; and

(d)capacitors that contain an electrolyte meeting the classification criteria of any class of dangerous goods are designed to withstand a 95 kPa pressure differential.

Energy storage capacity means the energy stored in a capacitor, as calculated according to the following equation:

Wh = 1/2CN(UR2?UL2) × (1/3600),

where (CN) is the nominal capacitance, (UR) is the rated voltage, and (UL) is the rated lower limit voltage


(2)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)capacitors with an energy storage capacity less than or equal to 0.3 Wh;

(b)capacitors that contain an electrolyte not included in at least one of the 9 classes of dangerous goods, including when configured in a module or when installed in equipment;

(c)capacitors that contain an electrolyte not included in at least one of the 9 classes of dangerous goods, with an energy storage capacity less than or equal to 20 Wh, including when configured in a module if the capacitors are capable of withstanding a 1.2 m drop test on an unyielding surface, unpackaged, without loss of contents; and

(d)capacitors that are installed in equipment and contain an electrolyte included in at least one of the 9 classes of dangerous goods, if the equipment is contained in a strong outer means of containment that is 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 or accidental functioning of capacitors that could endanger public safety.

Large robust equipment containing capacitors may be offered for transport unpackaged or on pallets if the capacitors are afforded equivalent protection by the equipment in which they are contained.

(3)Despite subsections (1) and (2), nickel-carbon asymmetric capacitors containing Class 8 alkaline electrolytes must be transported as UN2795, BATTERIES, WET, FILLED WITH ALKALI, electric storage.
