Cougar Containers for Catalyst Handling
by Chris Lawrence
Contract Resources use the Packgen ‘Cougar’ container for both new and spent Catalyst. This ensures Contract Resources are able to work efficiently on Catalyst change outs; reducing downtime for plants and refineries. The Cougar containers are UN approved for pyrophoric catalyst. Containers arrive flat on site, and can hold 1m of product when filled.
