Vacuum Technology Training, Vacuum Pump Service Training
    We offer the following Vacuum Technology training courses and seminars
    customized to meet your specific requirements:
  • Basic Vacuum Technology, a 1-day course, generally 7 hours, but can be up
    to 8 hours
  • Practical Vacuum Technology, a 2-day to 3-day course with a total of 14 to 21
    hours of instruction depending on the content selected
  • Vacuum Pump Service Courses, the length will vary depending on the technology
    or products to be covered. This is for oil sealed mechanical vacuum pumps only,
    specializing on Edwards EM and RV models and Stokes Microvac pumps.

    Basic Vacuum Technology:
    When a whole day (7 hours) is available, a range of vacuum technology concepts
    can be introduced as well as specific training relative to the vacuum equipment
    used by your company. Vacuum measuring units and Vacuum System Safety can
    also be included.

    Practical Vacuum Technology:
    In a 2-day to 3-day (14 to 21 hours) training course more time can be spent on
    vacuum related physics, vacuum units and gauges.
    Each vacuum pump mechanism can be shown and discussed as well as the best
    operating practice. The recommended  safety procedures and maintenance
    requirements can also be included.
    Ranges of vacuum, cleanliness, system design and leak testing may be included.
    Demonstrations can also be included in this course if the training site is within
    a days drive of the Philadelphia area.

    Oil Sealed Vacuum Pump Service Courses:
    If you use many mechanical vacuum pumps at your factory or laboratory, it may
    be practical and cost effective to carry out service rebuilds in your own workshop.
    If you have suitable vacuum pumps to use your technicians can learn how to strip,
    clean and rebuild several different types of vacuum pump including oil sealed
    rotary vane and rotary piston pumps.

    If you do not have spare, clean, vacuum pumps to use for training we can offer
    several different makes and models to use for a modest charge.

    We specialize on the Edwards EM and RV and the Stokes Microvac pumps, but
    can also work on Welch, Leybold, Pfeiffer, Alcatel/Adixen and other major brands.

    Details of special tools required to service the Edwards RV and EM vacuum
    pumps are included, and some special tools are available for purchase.

    The workshop sessions are generally preceded by short classroom sessions to
    allow the students to understand the technical details of each mechanism before
    they work on them.

  • All service training is delivered at your site.
  • We are not able to offer open registration training courses.
