Vacuum Repairs: Understanding the 7 Signs of Vacuum Pump Failure

Vacuum pumps have diverse applications, from space travel to semiconductor production, where they eliminate gas molecules from enclosed spaces. However, since vacuum pumps are mechanical systems, they can experience wear and tear over time. Recognizing the signs of a failing vacuum pump is essential to prevent costly downtime and maintain optimal performance.In this comprehensive guide, … Read more

How to Prevent Vacuum Pumps from Failing


The vacuum pump creates a vacuum to draw air from a space, so you can remove all of the air from that space and empty it into a container without any outside interference. The purpose of creating this vacuum is for cleaning purposes or for creating an environment where you can work without any interruptions. … Read more

Helium Leak Detection Systems Save the Day…and the Vacuum Pump

Helium Leak Detector Adixen ASM 340 Multipurpose. Compact, Std Base Model. Two Year Warranty

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

Vacuum Pump Repair

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
