We have Bruker Equinox 55 FTIR with a heated gas cell for quantative evolved gas analysis with a Netzsch 449 system. The unit flooded with water after we had an interruption in nitrogen delivery. The gas analysis detector seems Ok, but other portions of the system sustained serious damage.

Bruker doesn't recommend repairing the unit and has suggested we should buy a new one instead. Can any one suggest any company/contractor which could give us a second opinion and possible do the repairs? We would be happy to have at least gas analysis cell functioning.

\somethign i have tried with some success;

If the unit is still wet, wash it down with deionized or distilled water to remove minerals and other contaminates that might have been in the water lines that broke. Dry with warm air dry and see if it works. Completely dry is the key here. Adding some reagent grade alcohol to the water rinse speeds up the drying but could introduce more damage.
