Thread: AccuTools BluVac Micron Gauge
05-19-2011, 08:03 AM #79
Found out that my Robinair vaccum blank-off was leaking.
Also found out that my TIF micron gauge sensor assembly was leaking.
The Blue-Vac is MUCH faster in resolving the micron numbers than the TIF.
I found out that my Thermal vacuum pump gets down to 36 microns.
It will take some time to figure out how to set this one up. I do not yet have a way to blank off the system accurately.
I do like the small size.

how are u guys attaching to the bluvac? a hose, 1/4" swivel? tonight i brazed 2 pressure taps onto a piece of 3/8 copper. capped off one end and hooked the other end to my shraider tool. off the shraider tool i hooked up the bluvac and a 3/8x1/4 hose and vacuumed down. i got it to 60microns and blanked off the shraider tool. it slowly rised to 450 before i left. im wondering if my fittings are leaking that i hooked up to the bluvac. right now im using a 1/4" flare swivel that goes to a tee that has a shraider depressor in it. will see how many microns its at tomm morning

Either connect your gauge to a port on the system as far from the vacuum pump as possible, or use a vacuum-rated valve core removal tool with a side access port so that your blank off is testing only the system (and your core tool and micron gauge).Christian Pena - Appion Inc.

Chris if enough guys wanted one would you please make a core remover with a 1/4" female connection in stead of the male connection for these type of gauges that have a male flare fitting.If You Can Dodge A Wrench You Can Dodge A Ball

Thats one more connection I don't want to be looking after.
FWIW it seems all the micron gauges worth a dang have a 1/4 male connection and IMO is better since it will need hardly any maintenance and will keep your gauge in service with options.If You Can Dodge A Wrench You Can Dodge A Ball
