ICP & ICP/MS Torch Repair:
Precision Glassblowing repairs hundreds of torches each month. We can replace the outer shield, base or sidearm of most broken or used torches for much less than the cost of a replacement torch. Ceramic base torches for TJA instruments may be rebuilt multiple times at a very moderate price. Available with or without a new injector, rebuilt TJA torches receive all new precision i.d./o.d. quartz inner and outer tubes and new argon fittings with the used base remaining as the only aspect which separates it from a brand new OEM torch. Once any torch has been rebuilt, it passes through the same QC program as our new torches, guaranteeing it meets original manufacturer’s specifications. Scroll down for more information and examples of what can be repaired. Most broken items can be repaired in 3 weeks or less. A 48 hour rush service is available for an additional charge. Call 303.693.7329 or e-mail for pricing or information.
General Scientific Glassware Repair:
In addition to torches, Precision Glassblowing can repair spray chambers, cells and most general lab items. Common lab glass repairs include replacing stopcocks, replacing broken ground joints, fixing cracks in flasks and replacing sidearms on soxhlets and CLLE’s. Some simpler glassware may not be cost-effective to repair but in many cases repairs can save $100’s over the cost of replacement. Most broken items can be repaired in 2 weeks or less. A 48 hour rush service is available for an additional charge. Call 303.693.7329 or e-mail for pricing or information.
Can my torch be rebuilt:
We can repair most damage to the outer shield of a torch. Additionally, broken sidearms and bases can be repaired if the main body of the torch is not damaged. Damage to the inner shield of a torch cannot be repaired. Damage to the inner shield includes cracks, melting and devitrification (crystallization). Because we cannot guarantee the performance of a torch with a damaged injector, torches with such damage also can not be repaired. Typical repairs include the following:
