Product design changes
ChemIndustrial reserves the right to change product specifications, to redesign, alter or modify its products at any time, for any reason, without notice and without incurring any liability whatsoever.
Most of ChemIndustrial's products are designed for general and not specific applications. Because of this, ChemIndustrial is usually not aware of how its products eventually will be used. Each user of ChemIndustrial products should make appropriate analysis and tests to determine the suitability of the product for the intended use prior to placing it in any service and arrange for frequent inspection and periodic maintenance of products thereafter. ChemIndustrial provides no warranty and assumes no responsibility for chemical attack, or the consequences thereof, on any material, component or design feature associated with any of its products.
ChemIndustrial obtains chemical resistance data from many sources, all of which are beyond its control. Furthermore, factors such as concentration, temperature, agitation and presence of impurities influence chemical resistance. Because of these factors, chemical resistance information provided by ChemIndustrial in any form must be considered solely as general background information.
pH probes are consumable items. As such, they are excluded from warranty coverage.
