Indian Springs ERK - Multipurpose Tank-Car Kit

SKU: #HMS1490

This emergency response kit fits a broad assortment of railcar housings and arrangements - working on standard chlorine housings, sulfur dioxide, ammonia, and more.



The Emergency Response Kit (ERK) fits a wide range of railcar housings, trucks, and stationary tank arrangements. This kit works with standard chlorine, sulfur dioxide, and ammonia housings. The ERK has a light and universal design, with clamping jaws that attach anywhere along the housing ring. Address a wide range of valve configurations and styles with the included Teflon-lined, aluminum capping hoods, steel hoods, and corresponding EDPM and Viton gasket options. The ERK also includes rope, carabiners, gasket sack, and soft-sided tool bucket so responders can safely transport the ERK to the top of railcars containing hazardous materials. ERK supplies are labeled with a part number, color-coded green, and stored inside a durable polyethylene toolbox.
