(Please advise us on how to ship a fire extinguisher.)

Q.
The hose will be removed from the Fire Extinguisher. We will place a cap onto the fire extinguisher and pack it in a special purpose container. It will be declared as UN 1044 Fire Extinguisher and we will use PI 213. The weight of the BOTTLE is 70kg. Would this be correct?  (30 Sep 13)

A.
You will pack the BOTTLE with the CAP into the special container with the HOSE. The weight of the BOTTLE plus all the accessories will be the Net Weight of the shipment which should be entered on the Declaration as the Net Weight.
