Unpacking the Crate / Skid/ Boxes

If the Shells are packed in a crate, carefully remove the lid and any hold-down blocks. Completely remove any exposed nails, staples etc. that might puncture the Shells. Do not remove the bubble wrap or poly-sleeve at this time, as it will protect the Shell from accidental bumps and scrapes as it is taken from the crate into the ED system. TAKE CARE NOT TO PUNCTURE OR DAMAGE THE MEMBRANE SHELLS. Significant cuts or punctures generally cannot be repaired and render the entire Membrane Shell unusable. The Membrane Shells should always be supported at the cap and near the collar and neck to avoid damage to the membrane. Carefully inspect each Membrane Shell for possible defects and report any defects immediately to UFS Corporation. Cuts or punctures due to improper handling are the responsibility of the owner/installer. ME Cells with manufacturing defects will be repaired/replaced free of charge by UFS Corporation, upon return of the defective item. (Note: Items that are sent back to UFSc for inspection must be sent prepaid and require prior authorization.)

Step 1

Upon reaching the ED System remove the poly-sleeve from the Membrane Shell. Advised method of removal is to use scissors at the top of the Membrane Shell to cut seal. Please use caution when doing this to avoid injury or damage to the Membrane Shell. =Step 2=After completing step one remove the bubble wrap surrounding the Membrane portion of the Shell. This is done by removing the tape, which is equipped with pull-tabs. DO NOT USE ANY SHARP OBJECTS WHEN REMOVING BUBBLE WRAP.
