Production Scheduling
Once the order is received the units are labeled with new owner’s information, custom request, and projected ship date and order criteria. The units are moved to the preparation area for the refurbishing process to begin.
Cosmetic
The equipment is dismantled down to the basic frame/cabinet and is cosmetically renewed with sanding, polishing and painting with medical grade paint. This process takes approximately one week to take from basic component back up to a complete unit for anesthesia systems, surgical tables and surgical lights; less for patient monitoring, defibs, ESU, etc.
Technical / Electronic / Pneumatic / Mechanical Refurbishing
Our factory certified technicians analyze each sub-assembly for wear and proper function. Worn components are replaced with OEM components to original manufacturer’s specifications as when the unit was sold new. Any part not functioning to manufacturer spec is replaced in the same manner. The technicians will install all periodic parts kits; six month, one year, two year and three year maintenance kits to bring the equipment to the highest level. Rubber goods are replaced, nafion tubing, rolling diaphragms, peep diaphragms, APL diaphragms, canisters and gaskets, O2 sensors are replaced. Software upgrades are installed to latest level where applicable.
