Helium Leak Detection Saves the Day…and the Vacuum Pump

Helium leak detection is vital to ensuring the effectiveness and safety of any vacuum pump. Without highly-advanced helium leak detectors, we would have to use less effective methods of leak detection and potentially compromise the safety and integrity of all our vacuum applications. Although leak detection technology is widely used, it isn’t always appreciated for … Read more

Noises and Leaks and Amps, Oh my!

A well-maintained Vacuum Pump will last many years. But occasionally, issues do arise and your pump might need repair. And sometimes these issues are difficult to decipher without an expert there. But there are some initial steps you can take to troubleshoot a cranky Edwards or Welch vacuum pump. When analyzing pump problems, look for the 4 following … Read more

How to Improve Your Research with Tuned Up Vacuum-Driven Applications

Medicinal Chemists, Organic Chemists, Biochemists, Biologists, Molecular Biologists and other scientists rely upon Vacuum-Driven Devices to concentrate, dry, or filter their materials. If your Vacuum System is not performing optimally, it can slow preparation of research-critical samples by as much as 50%-100%!This can have a significant impact on time-to-market, or on your research paper productivity. Doesn’t it make … Read more
