FAQs

1.  How soon will you ship an instrument? 
We will try to ship as quickly as we can. Normal range of time is usually 7-10 business days.
Please note that all equipment requests should be at least 45 days in advance in order to fulfill your request in a timely manner.

2.  What is the shipping policy? 
The customer pays for shipping, which must be secure and insured (such as FedEx or USPS).
The return shipping tracking number must be provided to the IH Equipment Lab by email at the time it is shipped.

3.  Calibration? 
Every instrument the AIPH  IH Equipment Lab loans out is calibrated according to manufacturer’s requirements, technical manual (TM) or the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

4.  Costs?
There is no cost to borrow IH Equipment.
If we don’t have the equipment the customer needs, such as a particular type of calibration gas or sensor, the customer will need to take measures to purchase it.
Note: some specialty gases or sensors could take up to 4-6 weeks for delivery.

5.  What happens when an instrument breaks or doesn’t work properly? 
We will attempt to remedy the problem by eliminating the possibility of user error by phone.
If that doesn’t work, the instrument must be shipped back to the IH Equipment Lab for further evaluation.
The customer will be responsible for any damage to instruments beyond normal wear and usage.
