|If the magnet is not filled in the proper manner it will quench causing significant “down time” for your lab, not to mention the exorbitant costs associated with bringing the magnet back up to field. MR Resources is fully equipped, staffed and prepared to deal with any quenched magnet situation. Quenches, although infrequent, create costly down time and pose a serious impediment to your research.
In the event of a quench, time is of the essence; please call us as soon as possible at 1-888-466-7435. MR Resources will:
