RESTOCKING CHARGES: Products and related parts that are returned to Duro-Sense Corporation in unused and like-new condition, that are returned for credit, will be subject to a minimum 20% restocking charge.  The actual charges will be determined, by Duro-Sense Corporation, based on the type of material, its resale value and inspection and evaluation of the material in question.

CERTIFICATION: N.I.S.T. traceable calibration and certification is available for thermocouples, RTD’s and thermocouple wire.  Certifications are limited to temperatures between -109°F and 2650°F (-78°C and 1454°C).  Certifications are dependent upon calibration limitations of element materials and sheaths where applicable.  The minimum sensor assembly length for certification is 18 inches of sheath length and the minimum length for certifying insulated thermocouple wire is 24 inches.  Thermocouple wire is certified by making thermocouples from each end of the wire spool and evaluating them at specified temperatures.  Lead-time for certification is dependent upon the quantity of items being certified as well as the capacity of the calibration laboratory at the time.  Purchaser should contact Duro-Sense Corporation directly for current certification lead times.
