Maintenance Contracts: Prevention for Predictable Investment
NETZSCH analysis instruments have a well founded reputation for reliability, long service life and trouble-free operation. By combining this with a maintenance contract or an individual full-service agreement, you ensure that your instrument remains reliable for many years and minimize instrument failure as well as reducing any associated unplanned costs.
NETZSCH analysis instruments have a well founded reputation for reliability, long service life and trouble-free operation. By combining this with a maintenance contract, you ensure that your instrument remains reliable for many years and minimize instrument failure as well as reducing any associated unplanned costs. Along with a selection of complete service packages, NETZSCH offers customized maintenance services. This means any investment is kept at a planned level.
As well as the main instruments, any peripheral equipment supplied by NETZSCH, e.g. connected mass spectrometers, coupling systems, thermostats, intracooler or pumps can be covered by the service agreement.
Another advantage of regular maintenance appointments: You have the opportunity to discuss current applications directly with our expert service personnel.
Flexible Maintenance Agreements and Calibration Service
Tailoring your maintenance contract is as individual as your analyzer. We recommend a maintenance interval of 12 months, however, special agreements are also possible. Additionally, there is the option for our trained service staff to prepare IQ/OQ/PQ documents and (re-) qualification for you on site. Flexible extra services, such as inspection of your liquid tank or ISO 9001-certified inspection of measuring and testing equipment can also be agreed as part of the maintenance contract. The respective maintenance certificates are of course also included.
NETZSCH also offer one-time maintenance visits without contract obligation. However, for long-term cost savings and calculable investment, we would recommend taking out a preventative maintenance contract.

For efficient support, we have put together specific tailor-made service packages for the chemical and pharmaceutical fields, which provide additional features over and above our standard maintenance contracts.
