Replacing Your OEC 9800 Skin Spacer

Given the mobile nature of a C-arm, it's bound to happen at least once in a system's life: the skin spacer gets left behind somewhere and is never seen again. Or maybe it takes a fall and cracks. Or maybe the seal wears out and the spacer won't stay in place. Whatever the case, this simple acrylic accessory isn't invincible and replacements are a common request fielded by our Parts Team.

Below you'll find the vital details on ordering your replacement, including manufacturer part number and current average pricing. If using the skin spacer is a rarity at your facility, we'll also let you know why it's still important that you have one.
