Commonly Replaced Parts:

  • CT system’s carbon brushes: Major OEMs recommend that replacement of CT system’s carbon brushes at least once a year. If the brushes haven’t been replaced in several years, it can lead to a variety of issues. The carbon brushes should be checked during all PMs.
  • Potentiometers and Encoders: When potentiometers or encoders fail, the device will start moving very slowly or simply stop.
  • Cooling Units: It is recommended that the cooling units be replaced during scheduled PMs to avoid lengthy system down times. Too often, sites wait for the units to completely burn out. A failing cooling unit has a negative impact on the X-ray tubes and detectors.
  • Hand and Foot Switches: Due to normal wear and tear, repetitive use, and accidental damage, hand and foot switches are frequently replaced.
  • C-Arm Cables: Connector pins and cables bend, break, and short out due to repetitive use. This type of damage leads to a bad connection.

Our goal to help limit system downtime so healthcare facilities can serve patients and save lives. If you’re ready to order, contact our Customer Service Team!
