An ultra-high vacuum (UHV) system is a valuable asset to your laboratory. Many institutions cannot easily afford replacement components or entire systems, making routine maintenance vital. Scientific Vacuum Sales & Support, Inc. provides UHV system maintenance to keep your vacuum system operating at peak performance.
UHV Maintenance Services
The experienced technicians at Scientific Vacuum Sales & Support, Inc. provide all services that may be necessary to maintain your UHV system, including:
- Changing vacuum pump oil
- Cleaning vacuum chamber(s)
- Replacing tip seals
- Cleaning traps and filters
- Changing elements
What services your UHV system requires depends on the type of pump and components. We customize maintenance plans to meet your needs and provide free estimates.
When Do You Need UHV Maintenance?
There is no standard maintenance interval for UHV systems. A number of factors affect how frequently you may need maintenance, such as:
- The frequency and duration of pump operation
- Reactivity of materials in the chamber
The best indicator of maintenance needs is performance. If your UHV system performance is dropping, even minutely, contact us for leak checking and maintenance service.
