Gas analyzers and pressure alarm systems are sensitive devices and should be well protected against shipping damage. The device should be first wrapped in a plastic bag and then sealed to keep out dust, dirt, moisture, and other contamination sources. Next, the product should be wrapped in several layers of bubble wrap, 4+ inches thick covering all sides, the top and the bottom of the device. The wrapped device should then be over-packed in a cardboard box of sufficient strength. The analyzer should be secured and snug fitting in the box. The box should be closed and sealed. The RMA shipping label should be placed on the top side of the package. Multiple “FRAGILE” stickers should be placed on the exterior of the package to alert transporters of fragile status.
Note 1: Do not use foam type packaging materials as most do not sufficiently protect against vibration damage.
Note 2: Do not return any loose items with the analyzer.
Note 3: Do not return devices that have been contaminated with unknown substances or known hazardous, harmful, and/or toxic materials.
