Shipping Policy: Unless otherwise stated or arranged, E.I.T. Corporation ships all orders via UPS Ground Service
Damaged Shipments: The greatest care is taken in the preparation and packaging of you order. However, should damage occur in transit, you must notify us immediately and retain all damaged merchandise along with packaging materials.
Repairs: All products described within these pages are fully repairable by our factory trained technicians. Repair items may be sent directly to our facility (Please include a telephone number and contact information including name).
Batteries: E.I.T. Corporation installs new batteries with all shipments of new products. We use only Heavy Duty Alkaline batteries produced by Duracell and Energizer, or their analog. Not all batteries are created equal: If it's a discount battery and neither Heavy Duty or Alkaline, it won't perform well.
Replacing Batteries: Insure proper polarity when replacing cells. Older Scorpion model Electric Blasting Machines, such as the original HB-50 and the HBR-150 and HBR-350 used 2 and 4 packs of "AA" batteries. For best results, replace all "AA" batteries when replacing these cells.
Replacing Electronic Non-Electric Initiation Tips, or Shock Tube Connectors (STC's): The Initiation Tip, or STC, is a consumable item. These items are robustly designed for long service. When the condition of the spark is observed to be significantly diminished, the Tip (STC) should be replaced. Replacement Tips and STC's are available from E.I.T. Corporation.
Use of Electronic Non-Electric Initiation Tips and STC's: All tips designed by E.I.T. Corporation utilize an electrode design meant to be inserted directly into the Non-Electric Tubing. There is no need for "tapping" or "powdering" the electrode as it is not designed to operate in that fashion. When loading the Non-Electric Tip or STC, Insure that the Non-Electric Tubing is inserted fully onto the electrode. No further preparation is required.
