FENNVILLE, Mich., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Metallurgical High Vacuum has created a new "High Vacuum News" to provide heat treat industry professionals with tips and hints to keep their vacuum pumps running strong.
As Geoff Humberstone, MHV President, comments: "This year marks 30 years for us as Metallurgical High Vacuum. Back in 1981, I saw the need for vacuum design and consulting and started the company. Within four years we added pump remanufacturing because we understood the demands of heat treating and vacuum coating 24/7 operations. They needed higher quality with good local support to meet their customer's demands and we provided just that.
"The Newsletter addresses typical problems like Vacuum Leak Troubleshooting and Oil Contamination that can drive heat treaters up the wall at times. We explain how the use of 'Gas Ballast' can help clean out moisture from pump oil. This is an important capability because when water (moisture) or process vapors are present in a vacuum system, they end up in the pump that is evacuating the system. Keeping complex systems running well takes time and know-how, and we want to help out.
"We also want to enable two-way communication with customers and other busy professionals in the industry to share information, so we are asking readers to send in questions and ideas, as well as tips from their own experience."
Metallurgical High Vacuum repairs and remanufactures most types and models of pumps, including diffusion and piston types, regardless of the original manufacturer - Stokes, Kinney, Tuthill, MD, Leybold, Dresser Roots, Aerzen, Varian, or Edwards.
