When you are preparing for potential client visits, you'll need to look closely at whether your furnaces are able to meet the timing requirements of these more challenging materials. If not, you will need to upgrade your vacuum systems.
1722s and NHS35s furnaces might not be fast enough for more lucrative customers. You'll need to make a choice: upgrade your facility or remain small.
Upgraded pumps can help to increase energy efficiency and help you avoid bureaucratic red tape from the Environmental Protection Agency as well. You can also expect to lower your power bill by 30% to 50%, and reduce spending on diffusion pump oil, vacuum pump oil, and disposal.
There are even more benefits to upgrading your vacuum system, including:
Reaching target pressure on diffusion pumps faster
Pump noise reduction
Minimizing oil changes, oil leaks, and smelly oil smoke exhaust (e.g. with dry compressing vacuum pumps)
Consistent, reliable performance from all your vacuum pumps
These improvements also mean that your maintenance team can prioritize work on the hot zones and other maintenance-intensive equipment in your facility, instead of changing oil on vacuum pumps. Potential customers will take note of the efficiency of your systems and the reliability of your hardware.
