This product has been refurbished by PTB Sales, Inc. PTB Sales is not affiliated with Brooks Automation, Inc., the Original Equipment Manufacturer. In some cases, PTB Sales uses processes and parts that are different from those used by the OEM, and the OEM expressly disclaims any warranty obligations with respect to this refurbished product.
The following is a real-life example of what happened when one of our customers sent in their Brooks CTI 9600 compressor for repair to PTB Sales:
After evaluation, it was determined that the compressor pump was “locked” and the oil separator was full of oil. The nonfunctioning oil separator did not provide sufficient oil to the compressor pump causing the pump to overheat and fail.
PTB Sales replaced the compressor pump with a new OEM pump and replaced the oil separator with a remanufactured one. We continued with our standard service scope of work within our industry leading three day turn-around time. All of this was performed under PTB's fixed price repair program of $2,750.
What would have happened if the customer sent the 9600 Compressor to the OEM? They would have been notified that the cost to repair older units is significantly more than the cost to repair newer compressors. They would be offered two options:
- $6,850 repair cost
- $1,000 credit towards the purchase of a new compressor
- Cause & Effect of Helium Contamination on a Cryogenic Vacuum System
