When it comes to industrial vacuum systems, problems can arise from various sources. These issues not only disrupt your operations but also consume valuable time and resources. That’s where Metallurgical High Vacuum (MHV) steps in. We offer comprehensive diagnostic services designed to identify and address everything from common vacuum system issues to complex problems.


Common Signs and Symptoms of a Bad Vacuum Pump

Some common concerns and issues that our diagnostic services can help with include:

  • High Leak-Up Rate: This could be due to leaks, outgassing, or other factors.
  • Inadequate Pump Performance: Issues such as wear and tear, contamination, or improper operation can lead to suboptimal pump performance.
  • System Overheating: Overheating can result from excessive load, improper cooling, or valve failure.
  • Excessive Noise or Vibration: Often a sign of mechanical issues or imbalance in the system.
  • Control System Failures: Problems with the control system can lead to erratic or inefficient system performance e.g. incorrect vacuum switch set point which allows blower to come on too soon overloading blower or blower comes on too late increasing pump down time
  • Preventative Maintenance Needs: Routine maintenance is crucial to prevent unexpected downtime and maintain system efficiency.


Our team of experts is ready to evaluate these issues (and more) with your vacuum pumps, boosters, and systems. We don’t just identify the problem; we work closely with you to understand your systems thoroughly and provide tailored solutions to not only repair, but also improve efficiency and longevity.
