The article focuses on hauling the Vacuum Impregnation Tank (VIT). It says that Precision Specialized Division Inc. was contracted to transport VIT 112 miles from the docks at Oshawa, Ontario. It states that VIT are used to fill compounds in electrical transformer manufacturing that increases the dielectric strength, enhance the structural integrity of the coils, and cuts or removes winding noise.
