OxyMem warrants that its membrane cassettes supplied shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship. The membrane warranty will commence upon installation of the membrane cassette in the MABR system or three months after the date of membrane cassette ready for shipment ex works Moydrum, Athlone, Ireland, whichever comes first.
OxyMem’s sole liability and the Purchaser and/or Owner exclusive remedy under this warranty shall be to provide replacement membrane cassettes and is limited to the initial membrane cassette contract value. Any membrane cassette found to be defective under the terms of this warranty during the first 24 months of the warranty period will be replaced at no cost to the Purchaser and/or Owner, excluding shipping, handling and installation charges. Any membrane cassette found to be defective under the terms of this warranty after the initial 24 months of the warranty period will be replaced based on the pro-rata membrane cassette value as calculated below, excluding shipping, handling and installation charges.
Pro-rata membrane cassette value:
Membrane cassette replacement price X the number of months beneficial use remaining/ Total membrane element warranty period
The Membrane Cassette Replacement Price is based on the actual list price at the time of replacement cassette or otherwise agreed upon. The months of beneficial use remaining will be calculated based on the calendar month of the warranty claim relative to the commencement of the warranty period.
The total membrane element warranty period is 120 months.
A membrane cassette shall be considered defective if it meets one or more of the following criteria: An individual membrane cassette shall be considered defective;
If more than 2 of the total number of membrane bunches in the cassette have been noted in writing as defective and have subsequently required repair during any consecutive period of 12 months
