Can I take this item on a plane?

Valve oil that is flammable is forbidden and cannot go onto the aircraft. If you are planning to travel with valve oil please check the related material safety data sheet to determine if it is okay to travel. Ensure a copy of the material safety data sheet travels with the valve oil.

What are the restrictions?

Valve oil containing petroleum distillates or hydrocarbons must not be taken on a plane.

Why is this item restricted?

Some liquids are highly volatile and can have low combustion thresholds and can’t be taken onto planes because there is a risk of them exploding or catching fire harming people and property. It is not safe to take them on the plane.

You will be asked to relinquish all dangerous goods and weapons found in your luggage, carried contrary to the restrictions. If you refuse:

you will not be permitted to move through the screening point, and

your airline will be advised of your refusal.

We use a number of security measures, including x-raying bags to make sure there is nothing dangerous in them. If something is seen on the x-ray that needs checking, the bag will be opened, searched and any dangerous goods and weapons located will be removed.
