While carriers may be listed at a certain size, such as 4" or 6", the carrier is actually smaller in size. Carriers are associated with a pneumatic tube system size to avoid errors in matching carriers.

For example, a carrier that is 3 3/4" in size would fit within a 4" pneumatic tube system because its size exceeds the size limitations of a 3" pneumatic tube system. A 3" pneumatic tube system would require a carrier with an outside diameter (OD) of less than 3".

The capacities of carriers do vary based on size. Please see the chart below for further detail:
