Replacement Parts Industries, Inc


Al and Sherry LapidesSince 1972, Replacement Parts Industries, Inc. has provided BMET’s, clinical engineers, facilities personnel and independent service technicians with an alternate source for obtaining quality replacement parts for new and obsolete medical equipment, hospital equipment, dental equipment, and laboratory equipment.

We opened our doors in response to a growing need in the healthcare industry for a source other than the original manufacturer (OEM) to obtain quality replacement parts. But it is the wide selection of parts, excellent customer service, fair prices and loyal customers that have made RPI the success it is today.

RPI is in the parts business and only the parts business. We focus on one thing, and only one thing ... producing quality parts. We do not make, sell, or service equipment. We are not a broker or a distributor. We design and manufacture or directly source replacement parts for the healthcare industry. Our goal is to help you keep the equipment you service up and running.

Al and Sherry pass the baton to their son, Ira LapidesOur quality-engineered parts are manufactured to meet or exceed the original equipment manufacturer’s specifications. In fact, we design quality into every part we produce. Our Product Development Team and Quality Control Department work together in every stage of the design, testing and manufacturing process to ensure quality performance from every RPI part.

We are proud to present our Quality Policy, so please take a moment to review our promise to our customers and our industry. Click here (PDF).

RPI has gained an international reputation for quality parts and unparalleled customer service. Professionals around the world who repair and maintain healthcare equipment have come to rely on RPI as the leader in replacement parts. Please contact us. We welcome the opportunity to show you why!

RPI – FDA 510(k) RegisteredRPI’s heating elements, skin temperature probes, and phototherapy lamps that fit various infant incubators and warmers are all FDA 510(k) registered. While the FDA does not normally regulate the production and use of OEM or second source replacement parts, they do require premarket notification known as a "510(k)" on some items. The heating elements, probes, and lamps providing therapy or direct diagnostic information are considered to be accessories to Class II devices – warmers and incubators. Therefore, 510(k)’s are required on these items. Submissions for a 510(k) consist of an evaluation of the device, technical background, testing information, and inspection information. If the item is similar to something already on the market, as RPI’s component devices are, then the FDA requires a reference to these predicate devices in the 510(k), and substantial equivalence must be demonstrated. The FDA conducts regular inspections to ensure that RPI is adhering to the FDA's Quality System Requirements. RPI Registration #1000617661 and Owner Operator #10025749).

RPI's Online CatalogThe RPI catalog is more than just a listing of parts. It's a work tool. Keep it handy and refer to it often. It can be accessed anytime, day or night! Click to view or download a PDF version of the Catalog.

The catalog is divided into different sections based on type of equipment so that you can go right to the parts you need. Illustrations and detailed descriptions are provided for each part to simplify identification. What's more, all of the O-ring and cross section illustrations are to actual size. Simply align the O-ring or cross section of a part directly on top of the illustration to check for a perfect match. It helps you to determine quickly which part you need.

Within each section, you will find the OEMs listed in alphabetical order. There's a handy Cross Reference at the beginning of each section that lists all of the parts we carry for each of the OEM models. It makes it easy to locate the parts you need. The price pages for the entire section are located at the end of each section.

Also included are several at-a-glance Reference Guides. They are helpful when you know what you need, but you don't have all of the information for a particular part.
