Statement of Guarantee and Liability

National Vacuum Equipment guarantees all manufactured products furnished by it to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 1 – 2 year(s) from date of shipment from its warehouse or 1 – 2 year(s) from the original purchase date, depending on the product, and is subject only to the following:

  1. Manufacturer’s liability under this warranty (and under any other warranty expressed or implied, statutory or otherwise) is limited to repair, or at manufacturer’s option, replacement of all parts which are shown to have been defective when shipped, and then only if the manufacturer is notified of such defects within such warranty period and such defective parts are promptly delivered to its factory at 2707 Aero Park Drive, Traverse City, Michigan 49686, transportation charges prepaid. Manufacturer’s liability hereunder shall not be enforceable until such equipment has been fully paid for. Except to the extent expressly assumed herein, manufacturer’s liability for incidental and consequential damage is hereby excluded to the full extent permitted by applicable law. Manufacturer’s liability as stated herein cannot be altered or enlarged except by a writing signed by an officer of the manufacturer.
  2. Warranty is void if compatible components, or approved components of equal quality, are not used with the pump.
  3. Vane breakage or subsequent damage caused by vane breakage is not warrantable. 
  4. Damage caused by improper use or lack of proper maintenance is not warrantable. 
  5. Products manufactured by companies other than NVE are subject to the terms of their respective warranties. 
  6. Responsibility of Final Assembler. NVE goes to great lengths to insure the quality and proper functionality of the products it supplies. Many products we supply are purchased for resale or are impossible or impractical to test prior to the installation of the item in a vacuum system. It is therefore the responsibility of the final assembler to thoroughly test the vacuum system and components supplied to the assembler by NVE prior to delivery of the final product to the end user. Any items found to be defective after delivery to the end user that should have been discovered prior to delivery will qualify for replacement of the defective part only with absolutely no compensation for outside labor or travel expenses. Any subsequent damage to other components caused by the defective part will be the sole responsibility of the assembler.
  7. NVE cannot guarantee the NVE valves against leakage once they are being used in the field. NVE Valves need to be installed in the proper manner according to the installation instructions.
