Delivery Information

We provide same-day delivery of items in stock and ordered before 11:00 AM. Your order will be delivered directly to the address
you provided when you placed your order.

Compressed gases (including liquid nitrogen) in stock and ordered before 3:00 PM will be delivered next-day. All same-day deliveries of gases will incur a $25 special delivery
surcharge due to the disruption in scheduled deliveries and to cover the additional costs incurred when responding to such requests.

Additional Order Information

  • Since we cannot possibly stock everything, we maintain excellent working relationships with our suppliers. If you require an item that we do not stock, we are usually able to special order it and have it the next day.

    If you do not see what you are looking for in our catalog, please call to special order it. To help you in this, we have catalogs from several suppliers that can assist you in choosing the items that best meet your needs. Simply call 801-581-8671 or e-mail our Customer Service Representative at with your requirements. Please have as much detail as you can on the items you are ordering, i.e., model number, size, color, quantity, etc.

  • Unless we are otherwise directed by you at the time you place your order, we will automatically backorder any amount that we do not have in stock. We always plan to have the items you want and in the quantities you need. However, due to varying demand, this situation does occur from time to time. Please be assured that your backordered items will receive the same expeditious handling as the items that are filled at the time you place your order–they will be delivered as soon as they are received.

    • Our Compressed Gases Division stocks all commonly needed compressed gases as well as liquid nitrogen. These gases are listed in our catalog from number 100000 through 100900.
    • Gases that are not stocked are special order and can be purchased upon request, occasionally with next-day delivery.
    • All “rush” or same day deliveries will incur a $25 special delivery surcharge due to the disruption in scheduled deliveries and to cover the additional costs incurred when responding to such requests.
    • Holiday Deliveries are often affected by the days off. Please plan ahead to have deliveries either the week before or the week after when possible.
