8 Installation Tips For a Leak Free Vacuum System

Posted by Tom Bassi on Nov 6, 2014 7:00:00 AM

INTRODUCTION: Vacuum sensors that have a threaded interface (e.g., like those found on Model 215v or Model 200) require threaded pipe connections. Threaded pipe connections are commonly used in vacuum sensors, vacuum pumps and rough-vacuum systems. This type of connection can provide economical, reliable service if properly installed. By following a few guidelines you can use threaded pipe to make connections that should be leak free in pressures down to 10 -4 Torr or better. However, low quality pipe and cheap pipe fittings are commonly used in rough vacuum systems, which usually results in unexpected leaks down the road. These leaks are tough to diagnose, and most users will rarely suspect the actual pipe or pipe fittings. This just leads to more downtime, more frustration and more cost. Here are 3 tips on effective sealing:
