Fluent Warranty Coverage
This Limited Warranty (this “Warranty”) sets forth the entire warranty for the product (the “Product”) designed by Fluent Conveyors, LLC, a Colorado limited liability company (“Fluent”), and the Purchaser identified below (which term includes the Purchaser’s owners, members, employees, contractors, agents and guests).
Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Limited Warranty (this “Warranty”), including, without limitation, the Limitations of Coverage set forth below, Fluent will furnish labor, parts, and/or replacement equipment necessary to repair operational or mechanical breakdowns of the Product covered by this Warranty, provided such service is required by product failure during normal usage. This Warranty only covers the Product purchased from Fluent as originally configured pursuant to previously agreed upon and approved drawings, blueprints, schematics, and specifications. This Warranty shall not apply to, and Purchaser shall be solely responsible for, the failure to provide complete and accurate drawings, blueprints, schematics, and specifications to Fluent. This Warranty only applies to those components and parts that are necessary to the Product’s functionality for its previously agreed upon use; this Warranty does not cover any accessories, components or parts used to enhance the performance of the Product.
- TERM OF COVERAGE. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Warranty, the coverage provided under this Warranty shall expire on the earlier of: (a) one (1) year from the date the Product is shipped to the Purchaser; or (b) upon two thousand eighty (2,080) hours of use of the Product.
- REGISTRATION. In order for Purchaser to qualify for this Warranty, Purchaser must register the Product within thirty (30) days of the Shipping Date by (a) mailing the registration form included with the Product to: Fluent Conveyors, LLC, 383 Corona Street, Denver, CO 80218; or (b) emailing the form to the email address provided on the registration form. Failure to timely register the Product purchased from Fluent shall void this Warranty in its entirety.
- AUTHORIZATION FOR REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT. In order for Purchaser to obtain authorization for the repair or replacement of any Product covered by this Warranty, Purchaser must: (a) obtain authorization prior to obtaining repair service and/or the receipt of a replacement product by calling (866)764-2980; and (b) have the original Product receipt or final invoice available. Once the foregoing has been accomplished, the Purchaser will receive instructions on obtaining repair service and/or a replacement. Once Fluent has issued its authorization, the Purchaser shall be required to pay for any freight charges incurred in returning this the Product (or any applicable part thereof). All obligations are considered fulfilled upon replacement of the Product or expiration of the warranty term expiration, or if, in Fluent’s reasonable judgment, further repair is not warranted due to causes set forth herein. At the Purchaser’s request, non- covered products can be returned to the Purchaser at the Purchaser’s sole cost and expense. Any charges incurred by Fluent in returning such non-covered products will charged to the Purchaser.

Service under this Warranty will be performed during the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm of the time zone in which the product is located Monday through Friday, excluding holiday periods. Diagnosis of any problem will not exceed twenty (20) business days and any repairs required will only be made after a full diagnosis has occurred.
- PLACE OF SERVICE. Service may be provided either at Fluent’s facility located at 383 Corona Street, Denver, CO 80218 or at a location to be determined in Fluent’s discretion. After Purchaser’s claim has been authorized, Fluent will, in accordance with this Warranty, cover those parts and labor costs so authorized. Purchaser will be solely responsible for transporting the Product to an authorized shipping depot and all freight charges incurred as a result of transporting the Product.
- PRODUCT REPAIR PARTS. If the Product or a unit, component, part or subassembly requires repair, Fluent, in its sole and absolute discretion, may repair, replace or exchange such item with an equivalent product, unit, component, part or subassembly that is new or refurbished. If Fluent determines that they are unable to repair the Product due to the unavailability of functional parts, service or technical information, the total liability owed to Purchaser under this Warranty will be the lesser of (I) the current market value of a product with equivalent specifications, as determined in Fluent’s reasonable discretion, or (II) the retail price paid for the Product, less any amounts due and owing to Fluent by Purchaser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in all events where parts or technical information are on extended backorder for a minimum of sixty (60) calendar days, Fluent will determine if a replacement will be made.
- BUYOUT. Fluent may elect, in Fluent’s sole and absolute discretion, to buy out the Warranty set forth herein, or any remaining term thereof, for an amount (the “Buyout Amount”) equal to the lesser of (a) the current market value of the Product with equivalent specifications, as determined in Fluent’s reasonable discretion and taking into consideration current manufacturers' and distributors' pricing on comparable products, or (b) the retail price paid for the Product less any amounts due and owing to Fluent. Upon delivering the Buyout Amount to the Purchaser, Fluent will be released from any and all Warranty obligations relating to the Product.
- THIRD PARTY REPAIRS. Repairs recommended by anyone other than Fluent are not covered by unless such repairs are approved in writing in advance by Fluent.

Model number, serial number, original date of purchase and a copy of Purchaser’s registration form of all items to be covered must be provided to execute application for service. If Purchaser requests service for a repair not covered by this Warranty, Purchaser will be solely responsible for all costs and expenses associated with such repair. If the Product, after an inspection, is found to be performing to specifications and Fluent determines that no repairs are required, Purchaser shall reimburse to Fluent upon demand all fees, costs and expenses incurred by Fluent with respect to such inspection.
