As Geoff Humberstone, MHV President, comments: "In complex vacuum systems, proper maintenance is key to keep them running and maximize production. I tell my customers to keep records on how their systems perform, including pump-down times, ultimate pressure, leak-up rates, etc. We show how to do it automatically to save time."

The Newsletter addresses many ways to keep complex systems running.

According to Humberstone: "You need to understand the conditions in your vacuum process, and what vapors or materials can be ending up in the pump oil so you avoid problems. Operating records will give you a good idea on when things will start to break down, i.e., predictive maintenance. It can save you a lot of time and trouble by being able to schedule work with a minimal effect on production."

MHV also wants to enable two-way communication with busy professionals in the industry to share information. Here's a sample of the articles:

  • Read and Plot Your Vacuum Performance—automatically—to show up issues before they can shut you down.
  • Toray Plastics (America) maintenance staff share how they keep production up and reduce unscheduled downtime to under 1.5% on their Metallized Film Coating Systems running 24/7
  • New Ipsen® Heat Treat Furnace customer relies on MHV  "Survivor" Vacuum Pumps for maximum uptime and better ROI
