Stock gases (high-use) are maintained at the Receiving & Stores warehouse. Non-stock (specialty) gases require special ordering and are obtained from the vendor as quickly as possible.
Non-stock gases require special ordering and may take longer to procure, contact us for price and delivery time. There may be additional cost and time involved with special orders, so plan accordingly.
When ordering gas cylinders, please indicate if purchase is for an existing lease or a new lease. Existing lease numbers can be found printed on the white tag attached to the cylinder. Please use this number when ordering a refill. The yearly lease rate is $55.00. A $5.00 drayage charge will be added for each cylinder delivered.
Delivery of gas cylinders will be made on Mondays and Thursdays only (except for actual emergencies). If a holiday falls on the scheduled delivery day, the delivery will be completed on the next business day.
Departments are requested to have empty cylinders available for exchange when gas refills are delivered.
TO AVOID DAMAGE TO ONGOING EXPERIMENTS, STORES PERSONNEL HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO NOT DISCONNECT TANKS IN SERVICE.
Failure to provide disconnected empty cylinders will result in additional charges being billed to the using department.
To avoid damage to the gas cylinder or the cylinder valve, the cylinder cap must be on the gas cylinder before removing from using department.
Cylinder gas leases cancelled after the beginning of the fiscal year (July 1) WILL BE REFUNDED ON A PRORATED BASIS. Leases cancelled after January 1 will not be credited.
