Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Sorry it's been such a long time but I'm finally back to it! So I decided that the pump I got was most likely just defective. Though I managed to reach 13 micron at one point, I don't think that's going to happen again.... I would want to repair it but I don't have the patience or time to do such a ...

Re: More Upgrades

This can possibly be used as a neutron generator for real life applications. Try sputtering titanium to make a beam on target device. From a PM with Mr. Seltzmen, coating the grid would help more so than the walls. But in all that is an extremely good system, especially for how small it is! Really g...

Re: Simple turbo pump controller

I have searched eBay and noticed that these controllers are quite expensive. I’m going to try and make one of these, but I’m not sure how it’s gonna turn out. Maybe a few weeks. Do these controllers work with the TPH-100? TPU-50?

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hello, Bruce Meagher gave me his gauge to use and test and it’s giving the exact same results. 25 torr and that’s the max. My gauge reads 35 torr so I do need to calibrate slightly. Does anyone know if it is bad if I don''t calibrate? This clearly shows that there is nothing wrong with my gauge. He ...

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hello, I think I will just go ahead with that route. I have seen people do it on these forums in the past so why not give it a go. If it doesn't go well and this thing is a peice of trash, then at least I know that I got my money back on it. I told the seller about the condition this pump and he ref...

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hello, Thanks for your reply. I only cleaning the case and not the stages. Richard advised me not to do so until I tested the pump. I don't want to spend more money so i'm afraid of opening up the stages as that would require me to change the o-rings. I remember someone saying that the orings can on...

Re: Cleaning/Repairing Edwards E2M5

Hi all, I finally programmed my MKS 901P using python and got it reading pressures and stuff. I will detail the whole procedure later. I also finally got the necessary adaptors and clamps for testing so I got right to it. Because the pics are really big in size i kept them in a separate google drive...
