Save up to 50% or more by refurbishing your critical equipment vs buying new.  Acela extends “end-of-life” of your capital equipment to improve ROI.  We have several refurbishing levels to suite client needs and various equipment types.  Once completed, each piece of equipment is tested to OEM specs and Service Manual methods to ensure years of additional service value. 

Refurbishing Levels

Which refurbishing level is right for your facility?

OEM Check – The unit is checked to verify that it meets OEM specs.   After testing, it is cleaned, sterilized and shipped back to you.

Exterior Cosmetic – The unit is checked to verify that it meets OEM specs.   The unit is then painted and/or exterior surfaces are refreshed.  It is then shipped back to you.

Parts Replacement – The unit is checked and does not meet OEM specs.   Technicians replace defective parts and then the unit is cosmetically refurbished before shipping back to you.

Complete Refurb – Major parts and sub-assemblies are replaced, cosmetic issues are addressed, and the unit is fully tested.  The unit is then shipping back to you.
