The Reasons for the Requirement of Wire Security Seals On Refillable Pesticides

Posted by Steve Diebold

In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) oversees the regulation of refillable containers for pesticides. Regulations addressing the tamper-proof status of pesticide containers are observed in other nations as well.

Pesticide containers that have been cleaned and refilled must have a one-way valve or a tamper-evident device on all openings (excluding vents). In order to reuse the container, you'll need to go through a series of time-consuming and expensive steps. Security seals are the best option since most containers don't have one-way valves.

Tamper evident wire seals are frequently utilized to seal pesticide containers for the reason that they can be used with any kind of closure. Wire seals, on the other hand, have a long history and a strong sense of tradition. Before more contemporary seals were produced, they were one of the only choices.

The employment of lead and aluminum wire seals in combination with a press enables the installation of dies with a specific press sign or marking. The press can then be assigned to a certain user, allowing the person checking the seal to know who administered it.

American Casting & Manufacturing has been producing tamper evident seals at its facility and operations center in New York for more than a century.

There are no tools required to shut the PSW-97 plastic and wire seals. The stainless lock has exceptional tamper-proof features and extremely legible marks, and it can be sealed by hand. Things like the location of usage and content, the person or group who was responsible for securing it, as well as who or what sealed the container may all be identified by serial letters and numbers.

Galvanized steel, stainless steel, or copper wires can be used in AC&M wire sealing. Pre-cut or attached, they are offered in a wide range of standard lengths. Moreover, bulk rolls of wire can be bought and trimmed to your desired length on the installation site.

Pesticide containers can be sealed in other ways apart from using wire seals. There are metal strap seals and several varieties of plastic pull-up seals that may be barcoded or custom labeled in a range of methods if the closure would accommodate bigger seals. To make them easier to see or keep track of, they've come in a choice of colors. They even include a place to jot down notes, such as the date or the user's name. There are a plethora of possibilities available on our website (
