Vacuum pump service

Moorfield vacuum has decade of experience in vacuum pump service from basic rotary vane pumps through to complex cryogenic and turbomolecular pumps

A brief explanation describing how we service our pumps is as follows

  1. Firstly we carry out a visual inspection of the pump to check for external damage
  2. The electric motor is removed and checked for free rotation and or bearing wear, motor is then stripped the bearings checked, motor is then checked electrically PAT testing, flash tested for continuity, resistance checked for insulation. Ensuring the motor winding's and coils are in good condition.   
  3. The main mechanical pumping Module is then stripped and fully decontaminated and cleaned.
  4. Once the pump is cleaned a full assessment of the pump mechanism is carried out to check for any wear or damage to the pump.
  5. A full list of spares and consumable vacuum parts is then put together.
  6. Third visual check to assess condition of non-consumable parts.
  7. The pump is then refitted with its electrical motor
  8. Helium leak testing or pressure rise testing is then carried dependant as to the pump type
  9. Pump testing is then carried out. The current drawn by the motor, the pump module temperature and the performance of the pump is monitored, measured and recorded.

The Completed Pump and or Unit is then taken to our  paint shop where its is made to look like an as new unit.

The pump is then packaged together with its test certificate and new oil where requested

Safety is key and we will request that a health and safety document is supplied with the pump, we will provide the necessary paperwork/form.

All work is done to ISO9001 standards.
