Instrument Repair and Service
Repairs for all GOW-MAC instruments are handled at our Bethlehem, PA U.S.A. facility. Instruments should be returned to us in their original packaging or similar, sturdy container and insured against damages.
In order to protect our employees from exposure to various hazards, a Health and Safety Declaration Form MUST be completed and returned to us for every item being sent in for repair. A form is placed into every instrument's operating manual but if yours is missing, click here to download a PDF version.
Complete the document in its entirety, sign it, and either fax [(610) 954-0599] or e-mail [firstname.lastname@example.org] it to GOW-MAC Instrument Co. Repair Dept, BEFORE returning the product. The instrument/device/part being returned will not be accepted into GOW-MAC?s facility until we receive this completed document. Once the product has been approved for return by our Chemical Safety Officer, an acknowledgement will be promptly issued to you with notification of your Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number and the procedure to follow for returning the product. A Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number is necessary to return an item for repair.
