    What don't you like about the Appion?

    Last I looked, which was quite some time ago, it had one of the best ratios of machine weight to refer pumped.
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    Also kind of interested in your Appion issue(s).

    I was thinking that Id go that way once my super evac and JB give up the ghost; if they ever finally check out on me.

    I sell Appion, JB, CPS, and Infinicon. Appion is our number one seller followed by JB. The infinicon's sit on the shelves and collect dust.

    I have the JB - I like it alot. Better gauges, and runs smoother, starts easier.

    But is physically larger then the appion.

    The inficon looks almost identical to the JB. One likely makes it for the other.

    I have had several recovery machines including 1 that I bought as a vacuum pump (40 some years ago) Robin air. I have the G5 appion and it is the best ever.

    It works great! If you want additional cooling they make a condenser for it too, that goes into an ice bucket. It'll pump liquid directly too.

    Check out the Fieldpiece MR45. Full disclosure, I work at FP. The MR45 has a DC motor that allows it to ramp up after the liquid stage to pump gas faster than your typical AC motor.
