Description

Filaments for the x-ray generators manufactured by Siemens can be repaired by Scientific Instrument Services. These instruments, which are used in crystallography, utilize coiled tungsten filaments. S.I.S. can repair these filaments at a large savings over the cost of replacement filaments from the manufacturer. The repair consists of removal of the old coil, cleaning of the base assembly and spotwelding a new coil in place. The coil will be identical to the original and will be precision aligned. The repaired filaments have demonstrated performances at least equal to the original filaments supplied by the manufacturers. Various shapes and sizes of coils are available, a few of which are shown below. This is not an exchange program. Your filaments are repaired and returned to you.

Please use Part No. FILREPX for all X-Ray generator filament repairs.

Filaments from various manufacturers and models can be combined to obtain the best prices.

Shipping Instructions

Package filaments carefully when sending them in for repair

Most filament glass parts and ceramic insulators are very fragile and are easily damaged during shipment. Therefore, please package all filaments carefully to avoid damage during shipment. We recommend that you package the filaments personally. Filaments should be packaged in a box at least 6 inches square using packing peanuts or bubble pack as cushioning. We recommend shipping by UPS or Federal Express for best handling.

Ship to:
Scientific Instrument Services, Inc.
1027 Old York Road
Ringoes, NJ 08551

All filament and other repairs are insured for $200 in return shipping unless otherwise noted.

Extra Info

Other Filament Repairs

In addition to the filaments described herein, we can repair many other filaments. If your filament is not described, contact us and we will see if we have repaired it before. If not we will be glad to repair it for you. In these cases, any information that you can provide such as a description of the filament design or construction, composition and size of the filament material, or drawings of the filament would be greatly appreciated. If possible, send us a filament for repair with at least a small piece of the original filament material intact. We will need some of this filament material to determine its dimensions and composition. Normal delivery on these special requests is 3 to 4 weeks when done for the first time. Subsequent deliveries will be 2 to 3 weeks.

PRICES FOR FILAMENT REPAIRS. Scientific Instrument Services continues to offer superior quality repairs at low prices. We have continued to expand our shop facilities and strive to improve our methods, techniques and materials. For the best prices, ship filaments to us in larger lots. This reduces the cost of handling and processing orders, thereby allowing us to pass the savings on to you. Filaments and heaters from various manufacturers can be combined to obtain the best prices.
