Taking the Guesswork Out of Pumpdown Curves

Posted by Tom Bassi on Sep 24, 2015 11:16:48 AM

Everyone knows that keeping track of your vacuum system pumpdown curves is important and a valuable asset in troubleshooting leaks in the system. However, creating pumpdown curves aren’t always easy and can take too much of your valuable time!

3 Key Features Your Vacuum Pump May Desperately Need

Posted by Tom Bassi on Sep 15, 2015 10:00:00 AM

              Vacuum Pumps—the Work Horses of Many Industrial Processes Vacuum pumps are an integral part of many industrial facilities and are used in many chemical processing and manufacturing applications. They are the work horses of vacuum processes and can often be in service 24 hours a day/7 days a week. With proper set-up of your system and timely preventative maintenance, your pump can operate effectively for years to come. You know how important preventative maintenance is, but there are other features like remote monitoring, data logging for tracking and pump down curve creation, and alarm notification that can be easily added to assist you in keeping your processes running without costly interruptions.

Avoid False Readings When Vacuum Sensors Fail

Posted by Tim Collins on Sep 11, 2015 11:12:04 AM

  Ever feel like this guy? Damage to sensors and units alike is an inevitable facet of field work that can put undue stress on even a well-prepared crew, especially when time is of the essence. Vacuum sensors are calibrated in air. However, sensor contamination can occur easily in real-world applications leading to failure or false readings. Having multiple back-up vacuum sensors on hand that have already been factory calibrated to your specific vacuum gauge can save time, stress, and avoid the risk of inaccurate readings. Read on!

Moisture in Oil Transformer Tanks: Avoiding Mechanical Breakdowns

Posted by Tim Collins on Nov 19, 2014 5:00:00 PM

Remember the ol' transformer oil purification experiment from applied chemistry class? Thinking of it as you learn about moisture and oil contamination can be very useful. Internal moisture in transformer oil tanks is not distributed uniformly, and can be concentrated in the most dangerous
