PCB's (Polychlorinated Biphenyls) is a substance used as a dielectric fluid in transformers, oil circuit breakers and capacitors. Each apparatus containing PCB's must be certified as PCB, PCB contaminated or non-PCB. Our lab uses chromatography and the electron capture method to determine the PCB concentration levels. The customer is supplied with a formal lab report showing the total PCB concentration broken down to indicate the concentration of arochlors 1242, 1254 and 1260.

EPA regulations require that no more PCB's be generated and that the existing PCB's be carefully contained and eventually removed and detoxified, land-filled or incinerated at an EPA approved facility. Spillage or mishandling of PCB fluids can result in tremendous liability being imposed on the owner. Substation Service Company while not an ultimate disposal site, provides a comprehensive array of PCB related services to help its customers comply with current EPA guidelines and regulations.
