    I have a bad o-ring in my exhaust too, ang I am guilty of over filling my pump oil (damn thing takes forever to show full and I always over shoot the full-line.

    I considered the TEZ pump from Appion, but the thing could wake the dead. And Its heaveer than my Robbie ...it does not pump down any faster than my Robbie either.

    So why pay 800 bucks when my pump cost about 450????

    If you do small systems there is no advantage. However if you do systems that are wet or very large systems then the TEZ 8 is the way to go as you can monitor oil condition and change oil on the go without shutting the pump off.

    Yeah, but i can do that with my Robbie too.

    Changing oil on the fly is nothing new ....old rfeer dogs have been doing it for years.

    Just need to isolate the system.

    And the TEZ has a very small oil reservoir.....oil changes are very frequent where as my Robbie has a very large oil sump.

    And if i used a TEZ on my resi jobs, the cops would arrest me for disturbing the peace. That thing is f'ing loud!



    Don't get me wrong, I love my Appion products and they are a company ahead of the technology curve, but the TEZ is just not for me.

    Can someone explain the best way to break the vacuum in these setups? My concern is damaging the micron gauge during a triple evac or charging. It doesn't look like you can isolate just the gauge if it is attached to the side port of the Appion CRT.

    BluVac "can" handle 500 psi.

    some people are using an additional core tool or shut off to isolate micron gauge.

    I have been so disgusted with my micron guage and vacum pump holding a vacum for some reason just wont happen. I have been trying to eliminate some possibilitys. I will hook my vacum pump up to my manifold, then hook blue guage to micton guage and leave red hose on manifold. I can pull my micron guage down below two hundred microns then.valve off my blue hose and it starts climbing. Put in new rubber gaskeys in.hose. Guess it has to be the micron guage... Or could.the manifold be the problem. Usong the cheaper jb micron.guage

    After cleaning the micron sensor, wouldn't it be wise to install it on your vacuum pump and run the pump?

    Would seem to me to be a quick and effective way to dry the sensor out.

    Of course, you run the risk of contaminating it with oil right after you cleaned it...


    Hmmm.

    Thoughts?

    Exactly how I dry mine. I run the pump for a few minutes before turning my gauge on

    A shot or two of nitro or dry Co2 will absorb the moisture quicker than a pump can boil it off.

    Are you guys using nylog on the bluevac fitting? I use nylog every where else just feel like I will contaminate the sensor if I use their.
