THE RPI FAMILY
H
i. My name is Olivia Jimenez. I
started working at RPI in 2012 in the
Customer Service and Purchasing
Department. Currently I am a purchasing assistant and enjoy working
here at RPI.
Ira Lapides
CEO & President
Replacement Parts Industries, Inc.
The last two years have seen some nice changes at RPI, as our growth continues
at a good pace. Next year we should see that trend continue as we add even more
new parts to our existing lines and introduce brand new lines of parts such as we
just did with parts to fit the Welch Allyn wall transformers. Much of this expansion
into supporting new modalities is again driven by you, our customers, with your
continuing valuable suggestions and requests.
I was born and raised in the San
Fernando Valley. I am the oldest of
three. I have a brother who is 21 years
old and a brother who is 17 years old.
At the moment, I am a part-time student trying to approach my goal in
becoming a business major.
We always try to improve our business to make your jobs easier as well, such as
our newly revamped Tech Assistance Center on our website. Similar to our catalog,
where I have always encouraged our customers to spend a few extra minutes
reviewing the catalog to remind you of all that we carry. I encourage you to spend
some extra time on our website to see all that it has to offer, including the parts
search function, sorting by OEM and/or model, newsletter and new parts flyer
archives, shopping cart, and much more.
Something I enjoy is helping my mom
decorate for events like birthday parties, baby showers, baptisms, confirmations and sometimes small weddings even though we don’t do it too
often. Creativity comes along and we
become a team, sharing our ideas to
make everything work together from
the centerpieces we create to decorating the event’s location.
Aside from where RPI is headed next, I am often asked where the healthcare
equipment repair and maintenance industry is headed, especially in light of the
potential impacts of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare or the ACA), continuing changes in technology, and the world economy. So, here are a few prognostications, in no particular order:
Another thing I enjoy doing, for as
long as I can remember, is dancing.
Something my family enjoys except
for me, are roller coasters, that’s definitely not for me.
1. In general, I believe that the ACA will have a positive effect on the healthcare
equipment repair and maintenance industry, as payments to providers (hospitals,
physicians, dentists, etc.) will continue to tighten and their ability to purchase
new equipment will be limited. Therefore, extending the life of existing equipment will be of paramount importance. Only technologies that offer significant
diagnostic or therapeutic advantages, or that provide demonstrated significant
cost savings will break through and release capital for the purchase of new equipment.
My parents are from Guanajuato,
Mexico. Every year in December we
try to take
our family
vacation. We
get together
and spend
the holidays
with our relatives from
California
and most of
our relatives
who
we
Olivia Jimenez
haven’t seen Purchasing Assistant
in a year from other parts of the
United States and in Mexico, since
this vacation has become a family tradition and everyone heads to Gto. I
always enjoy spending this vacation
with my family and always come back
hoping to be able to go back next
December to see everyone again.
2. The world economy will continue to impact healthcare technology in several
ways. Manufacturers will continue to seek lower costs and look to have components made overseas. Companies in other countries will continue to progress in
their technologies, either manufacturing copies of American healthcare equipment or their own versions, and seek entry into the U.S. market. We have seen
that increasingly in both the medical and dental fields. Conversely, American
manufacturers will continue to seek opportunities in other countries as well,
either directly or through partnerships with manufacturers in target countries.
3. The market for refurbished medical and dental equipment should continue to be
strong given the restricted capital that providers will have to spend on new equipment. This will provide excellent opportunities for refurbishers in both the
domestic and international markets.

TALK
How to Compare ISO, SAE or
AGMA Ratings for Oil Viscosity!
By Mark Micucci RPI Product Development
Tomato (tuh-may-toh) or tomato (tuhmah-toh)? ISO or SAE or AGMA?
We receive many questions regarding
the viscosity ratings on RPI’s
Compressor and Hydraulic Fluids.
Mostly they are questions like, “I need
an SAE 30 and RPI’s oil is an ISO
100. Are they the same or different?”
The three main rating standards are
simply named after who is doing the
rating, and in terms of viscosity, they
are essentially describing the same
thing. SAE stands for Society of
Automotive Engineers, ISO stands for
International Standards Organization,
and lastly AGMA stands for American
Gear Manufacturers Association.
Each one has different ratings based
on their testing procedures, if they use
the Kinematic or Saybolt viscosities
tests and at what temperature these
tests were run.

Understanding the relationship of the
viscosity scales to one another is useful, but the viscosity of oil is only part
of what makes oil a proper lubricant
for a particular application. Other factors include the type of base oil and the
additives with which the lubricant is
formulated. Please contact RPI if you
need assistance in selecting the appropriate lubricant for your application.

The chart below illustrates the relationship between the different viscosity measurement scales. To show an
example of how to read the chart, we
added the RPI Part #’s of our oils in
the first column. Follow the dotted
line across the chart for the RPI Part
#CML001 oil. It shows that the viscosity of an ISO 100 grade is the same as
an AGMA 3 grade and SAE 30 grade
oil. (Note: Use the chart below to better understand the relationship of the
viscosity measurement scales only.)

Viscosities can be related horizontally only, For Example, the following oils have similar viscosities: ISO 100, AGMA 3 and SAE ENGINE OIL 30.
The viscosity/temperature relationships are based on 95 VI oils and are usable only for mono grade engine oils, gear oils and other 95 VI oils.
Crankcase oils and gear oils are based on 100˚C viscosity. The “W” grades are classified on low temperature properties. ISO oils and AGMA
grades are based on 40˚C viscosity.

of our customers, Mark from Texas, after a visit to his company by Ira Lapides and Neil Blagman. I recently came
across the email and thought to myself what an amazing
thing it is to be able to touch our customers in such a positive
way, and to have such wonderful customers. This year, RPI
marks its 42nd Anniversary, and I thank you, our customers,
for your support of us since the very beginning.
This is really my way of saying thank you to a whole lot of
people I don’t know and probably never will know: to the
surgeons whose skills and caring can save people’s lives, to
the nurses and doctors who work with them, to the biomedical engineers who gave them the tools to work miracles, to
the researchers who developed the medicines to keep them
alive and to all of the thousands who keep the IVs flowing,
the monitors clicking, the sterilizers working, and all of the
people in the healthcare industry who keep us going.
It may take a village to raise a child, but it sure takes a whole
lot of people to keep us on our feet.
God bless all of you.

Ira & Neil,
I just wanted to say thank you for visiting us yesterday.
That means a lot to myself and our staff. You asked for
thoughts on how you can improve, but it’s hard to come
up with an answer for that. Sure there might be a few
parts we encounter in the future that we could pass on
to you, but otherwise I just have to tell you what a pleasure it is to work with a company like yours.
Besides the obvious advantages you have (great
inventory, good pricing, knowledgeable staff), you also
do so many “little things” right. The comprehensive catalog is great, but I also really appreciate the regular
updates. We also take advantage of the newsletters
and posters. I don’t think you looked in the service area
of our shop, but the walls have several RPI posters
hanging in there. Your customer service is also excellent. Many times I’ve faxed in an order and almost
immediately received a phone call to let me know a
price has changed or that something might be on back
order. Those things go a long way in making your company what it is.
We are still pretty small but we are constantly growing,
and we strive to do everything right. Yours is one of the
companies that we try to emulate. Thanks for being a
model company. Thanks again for the visit, and thanks
for everything you do so well. Please pass along our
appreciation to your entire staff.

New
Fill/Vent Valve
Upgrade Assembly
To fit the AMSCO
Eagle 10 & 10 Plus Sterilizers
By Jim Wisniewski,
Manager, RPI Product Development
In September of 2013, our
solenoid valve manufacturer discontinued the
Fill/Vent Valve (RPI Part
#AMV170) that fits the
AMSCO Eagle 10 and 10
Plus sterilizers. However, we never gave
up trying to find a replacement solution for
our customers.
Today, we are pleased to say that our
time and effort really paid off! We are
proud to introduce our very creative solution that actually “kills two birds with one
stone” – it’s the new Fill/Vent Valve
Upgrade Assembly (RPI Part #AMA274).
Fill/Vent Valve Upgrade Assembly
(RPI Part #AMA274)
Replaces the discontinued valve with a
new design allowing for ease of disassembly
without having to remove them from the unit!
First, we have a replacement for this
valve. This new assembly includes a preassembled bank of two (Fill and Vent)
Solenoid Valves (RPI Part #MIS042) fitted
onto an easily installed mounting bracket
complete with all fittings, simple installation
instructions and everything needed to
upgrade the sterilizer without modifying the
chassis.
Second, we relocated the solenoid valves
facing the rear of the sterilizer for ease of
disassembly without removal. And with the
use of our Double Ended Spanner Wrench
(RPI Part #RPT501), future rebuilding of the
solenoid valves is a snap using our Rebuild
Kit (RPI Part #MIK053).
As you are aware, the original AMSCO configuration made access to the solenoid
valves very difficult and in turn made rebuilding a long and frustrating task.
RPI does it again! You wanted a solution
and we gave you more than you asked for.
This upgrade will make all future solenoid
valve maintenance and repairs a breeze.
Identifying Which Filter or Part is
Needed for your Compressor
By Mark Micucci, RPI Product Development
It can be confusing when selecting a
filter for a dental compressor.
The confusion really centers on air
intake filter elements vs. coalescing
filter elements vs. particle filter elements. In addition, every manufacturer uses a different filter assembly and
element that they believe gives their
equipment the best protection.
At present, RPI carries 33 different
styles of filters just for compressors.
So to make your job easier in selecting which filter you need for your
equipment, let’s first talk about where
each is located in the unit, and what it
does for the unit.
Let’s begin with Air Intake
Elements. These are located around
the compressor motor and head
assembly. They may be as simple as a
foam element in a tube or a filter element that is installed directly into the
compressor head.
Coalescing Filter Elements are
found inside assemblies that hang
from the lower side of the compressor
tank. These assemblies are usually
hard plumbed with copper tubing. The
newer ones have auto drains that drain
directly into the collection container
for proper disposal.
Particle Filter Elements, found on
the output hose that goes to the operatory, make sure that solids do not get
into the operatory air lines. They are
also found in the J-boxes in every
operatory as a secondary protection
against the Coalescing Filter or
Particle Filters failing on the compressor equipment itself.
As you can see, identifying which filter you need could be a difficult task.
So perhaps the easiest way to identify
the element you need is to visit the
RPI web site at www.rpiparts.com.
On the homepage go to the Part
Search by Equipment Type banner
located along the left side, directly
under the RPI logo. Next, scroll down
and place the mouse cursor over the
Dental Equipment tab to access the
drop down menu, then select
Compressors. Choose the manufacturer and then model number. This

will generate a complete listing of all
the parts RPI has for that model compressor including all of the filter elements, and PM Kits.
You may also go to the Technical
Assistance Center on the RPI web
site and click on or scroll down to
the At-a-Glance Cross Reference
Tables. Then select Dental Compressor PM Kits and find your model
number on the chart. This will show
you all Filter Element replacement
part numbers for your compressor
along with all the other parts RPI has
to support your compressor.

Especially for . . .
4. Job prospects in healthcare technology management, repair, and maintenance, and dental equipment
repair will be good. Skilled technicians, especially those that can
combine computer network knowledge with equipment expertise, will
be valued as more and more equipment becomes network connected.
5. On the hospital side, the struggle
between multi-vendor service
providers and in-house biomed
departments will continue, and
demonstrated cost savings will be
critical. A crucial element of those
cost savings, which applies to the
dental and physician office equipment service business, is not just
the cost of service or parts, but the
minimization of equipment downtime. Getting equipment up and
running faster allows the end user
to be productive and make money,
so sometimes the cost of the part or
service becomes secondary.
7. On the physician office equipment
side, the potential is there for larger
equipment service organizations to
penetrate the market, especially
some of the large multi-vendor service organizations whose focus is
on hospitals. As more physicians
and medical groups fall under the
umbrella of parent hospitals, many
of those biomed shops or outside
multi-vendor service companies
will see opportunities to expand.
I am sure I have missed a few things,
but I hope this will at the very least
offer some food for thought.
It is important to think ahead in business, and as unpredictable as this
industry might be, as long as some
flexibility is built into your plans for
the future, you should do well.
