ASE can supply a number
of styles of both new and reconditioned vaporizers
for all the commonly-used inhalation anesthetic agents, including
halothane, isoflurane and sevoflurane.
are disassembled, cleaned, rebuilt and recalibrated in our
facilities and are available at approximately half the cost
of a new unit.
Reconditioned vaporizers carry
a 5-year warranty.
Vaporizers are available with
either a funnel filler or a key fill system, which is designed
to prevent filling the vaporizer with the wrong agent. Key
fillers are therefore particularly recommended when more than
one anesthetic agent is used in a practice. The key filler
also prevents loss of anesthetic when the vaporizer is filled,
thus reducing atmospheric pollution and wastage of expensive
Modern anesthetic vaporizers
are precision pieces of equipment which are manufactured to
the highest standards and tolerances. With regular servicing,
they should be expected to give many years of trouble-free
manufacturers recommend annual maintenance for most models
currently in use.
If they are not serviced regularly, buildup of preservatives
and contaminants in the internal channels results in loss
of accuracy, sticking of the dial and, in severe cases, internal
corrosion and damage that may render the vaporizer unrepairable.
ASE services and
recalibrates most current and obsolete vaporizers promptly
and at very competitive rates.
ASE can repair most current and
obsolete models of vaporizer. Our ability to make a repair,
and its cost, will depend upon the nature of the problem and
the availability of spare parts.
Brackets and adapter kits are
available that allow fitting of a precision vaporizer onto
many older machines not originally designed for use with out
of circuit vaporizers.
