Freeze Dryer Preventative Maintenance (PM) Programs

SP Scientific will provide a Field Service Engineer who will visit your facility to perform scheduled lyophilizer preventative maintenance.

The duration of the visit will be determined based on the service outlined below and your specific system configuration.

Parts are typically required for preventative maintenance. SP Scientific will verify an applicable parts list and have them ordered and on-site prior to the arrival of the Field Service Engineer.
