Shipping DEWARS to SSRL MC Beamlines

Users coming to SSRL:

  • If your beam time begins on a Friday or just before a holiday, make sure your dewar arrives 1 day in advance.
  • To help us locate your shipment, please fill out the form below and use the generated label.
  • Remove all old shipping labels from your dewar whenever shipping to SSRL or from SSRL.

Remote Access Users:

  • All dewars must arrive 1 working day in advance of your scheduled beam time to avoid on-line delays. Note that dewars are not delivered to SLAC on the weekend or holidays.
  • Fill-out the form below to obtain the required shipping labels and return shipping form. These must be attached to your shipping dewar.
  • Due to the large volume of dewars we handle on a daily basis, we cannot ensure that cold dewars are totally dry; therefore, all dewars will be shipped back with LN2.
