How to ship your nuclear gauge to Humboldt


If you need assistance with your shipping or would like Humboldt to handle it for you, just contact us at: 1.800.537.4183.

Damaged Gauge Shipping:

To ship a damaged gauge to us for repair or disposal, you must first obtain prior approval. To do this call us at 1.800.537.4183. We will require that you send us photos, as well as a leak test, which has been performed on the gauge after the damage was inflicted.

To begin, you will need to pack your gauge into its shipping case. Be sure to lock the source rod in the "safe" position. Include the gauge and its reference block only. Do not send tools and other items with your shipment. You will want to lock the gauge and its shipping case.

If you are shipping a Humboldt gauge and case with the original locks you do not need to send the keys for the locks. However, if you have changed locks, aren't sure if you changed locks or are sending another manufacturer's gauge, place the keys in an envelope and attach them securely to the shipping case.

A Tamper Evident Security Seal may also be used to seal the shipping case per USDOT regulations. Also, be aware that damaged cases with holes or cracks other than superficial marks will not be permitted for shipping.

Also, be aware you will need a current, valid leak test for the gauge before shipping the gauge. Be sure to correctly indicate a valid leak test is available on the Humboldt RMA form.

You will need to confirm that Yellow II labels, indicating exactly what is in the case, are on the front and rear of the shipping case, as required by regulations. In addition to the Yellow II labels, you will also need an orange and black Cargo Aircraft Only (Do Not Load in Passenger Aircraft) label attached to the front and rear of the case.

If you are shipping multiple gauges, use a separate form for each type of gauge. You can ship multiple gauges of the same model on a single form, but different model gauges must be on a separate form. The form will automatically calculate the total weight of multiple gauges.

The form will fill out the Transport Index number based on your gauge type choice.
