The Beach Russ brands are an excellent vacuum pump that work extremely well for food processing applications that draw off large quantities of water. They require an experienced craftsman and care in the tear down, measurement and assembly phases of the rebuild process because they have their unique individual final fit-up requirements. No two pumps are exactly alike so final fit is always a customized procedure. This is challenging work, but our craftsmen have been able to identify the typical problem areas and process them with methodical steps designed to catch inconsistent or special fit requirements. MHV invested in producing castings for the gates on the 750 and 1000 pumps as these parts were not available commercially. Each of these pumps requires a significant investment of time to remanufacture but they work and nothing has been developed that performs nearly as well for extremely long durations in these processes.
