Each service includes a new certification.
Important! Bottle service and recertification is a service and not an exchange. For an efficient process you need to provide your contact info and plan ahead for Ground shipping times (to/from) as well as the actual service and processing time. Turnaround times are dependent on the time of year (longer at the start of racing season). Some bottles and systems require very specific service work that adds processing time (ex: bottles must be pressurized for X time to check for leaks). Plan the schedule ahead or have a second bottle per system that you can swap in.
Routine: extract and recycle the old gas, check all parts for wear and age issues, refill with Novec gas, pressurize, and relabel. Includes certification. Electric service includes a new electric trigger.
Refill (after discharge): check all parts for wear and age issues, refill with Novec gas, pressurize, and relabel. Includes certification. Some additional costs may be required if the system has been triggered. Electric refill includes a new electric trigger.
