General Warranty 

The Warranty described in this document shall be IN LIEU OF any other warranty, expressed or implied, including but not limited to, any implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or a fitness for a particular purpose. 

This limited warranty is given only to the immediate purchaser (‘Buyer”) of the TAP Kiln Control product. This limited warranty is not transferable. SDS Industries warrants the controller components to be in good working order under normal operating conditions for a period of three (3) years from the date of purchase. Should the TAP Kiln Control product fail to be in good working order at any time during the stated three (3) year period, SDS Industries will, at its option, repair or replace the TAP Kiln Control product as set forth below. Repair parts will be furnished on an exchange basis and will be either refurbished or new. All replaced parts or products become the property of SDS Industries. Following receipt of notice from Buyer of a valid warranty claim and the TAP Kiln Control product, SDS Industries will perform its obligations under this limited warranty within 7 business days. 

Limited warranty services may be obtained by delivering the TAP Kiln Control product during the warranty period to your TAP Kiln Control Supplier or to SDS Industries, INC. and providing written proof of purchase and a description of the defect or problem. Buyer will be responsible for shipping and handling incurred by SDS Industries in returning the TAP Kiln Control product to the Buyer after completion of limited warranty service.  

TAP Kiln Control products returned for service where no warranted defect is found will be subject to service and shipping fees. 

If the TAP Kiln Control product is not in good working order as warranted above, the Buyer’s sole remedy shall be repair or replacement of the TAP Kiln Control product as provided above.
