Turbo pump repair: Leybold,Seiko Seiki,Varian,Pfeiffer Balzers,Edwards,Adixen,Alcatel

Sertec, Inc. is an industry leader in conventional ball bearing turbomolecular pump repair.

We repair a wide range of turbo pump models from the following OEM brands: Alcatel, Balzers/Pfeiffer, Edwards, Leybold, Rigaku and Varian.

All repairs are performed and tested in house in a clean environment using some of the finest balancing and FFT diagnostic instruments available.

Located off site, we maintain a full machine shop where we design and construct the tooling necessary to properly rebuild your turbo pump.

We pride ourselves on good old fashioned mechanical know how and 18+ years of applied high vacuum techniques to ensure proper repair of your turbomolecular pump.

The difference is a precision balanced turbo pump that will run as smooth and quiet just like when you bought it new from the OEM.

Typical residual unbalance acceleration levels measured at the inlet flange are less than 2 m/s^2 but often measured to be less than 1 m/s^2.

This small measured amplitude is a difference you will notice. We at Sertec like to say "Turbo pumps should be seen and not heard!" Highest quality replacement parts, such as permanently lubricated ceramic bearings, are used in all repairs.

We work with one of the best bearing suppliers in the country, and the result of our combined efforts have produced some of the best aftermarket bearings available to the third party turbomolecular pump repair industry.

Many of my competitors use bearings that Sertec, Inc.helped develop!

We specialize in repairing the Varian V301, V550, V551 and V801 turbo pumps that are used on the API 4000 and API 5000 Applied Biosystems and SCIEX mass spectrometers. We can also put you directly in touch with a qualified service engineer for your LC/MS system.

Give us a call and we'll be happy to discuss your next repair. We have standard pricing for all models that we service. Repairs are competitively priced and discounts for universities are available.

Other services we offer: Diaphragm pump rebuilding (typically found on small turbo pumping systems). UHV welding. Helium leak checking (NIST traceable certificate of helium leak rate is available).

Discounted prices for bearing change and rebalance for the following pumps. We keep a few 550's, 551's and 801's on hand to use as exchange so you can minimize your down time. No additional charge for this service for recurring customers.
