- Before transport, turn the system off and return it to room temperature. Then disconnect it.
- There are 3 "shipping bolts" that should be screwed into the base of the Cryotiger compressor before it is transported considerably. These bolts are being kept on a shelf in the control room.
- Avoid tipping the Cryotiger compressor more than 30 degrees from level. If it is tipped more, displaced oil in the compressor can contaminate the system. If tipped more, don't operate the compressor without allowing 4 hours for the oil to settle into position again with the compressor held level.
- Use the original box and packing materials for shipping. It is stored in the downstairs room at the RCT.
