What NOT to ship back with your instrument

Never ship an instrument back with a Dry Gas Tank of any size, even if it is empty.  It is illegal and can carry heavy fines if you are caught shipping a hazardous material without proper certification and documentation. While the contents of the dry gas tanks are not inherently dangerous, the tanks are considered hazmat for shipping purposes because they are under pressure.

EC/IRs and Alcomonitor CCs both have gas tanks inside them.  Some portable devices such as RBT IV or Alco-Sensor IV with Memory are in blue vinyl carrying cases that also contain a small dry gas standard.  These need to be removed before you ship your instrument to us. 

We also do not need any disposable items. Remove any mouthpieces that are attached to your instrument or are in the case with the instrument.
