Update on BOC-Edwards Vacuum Pumps - 9/13/2005

In early July of this year, Micromeritics Instrument Corp. posted on this website a notice from BOC-Edwards of a safety issue associated with BOC Edwards E2M0.7 and E2M1.5 series rotary vane vacuum pumps. Since then, a number of users have contacted BOC Edwards and received their upgrade kits. Users of the ASAP Models 2000 and 2010 are finding that the upgrade kit is difficult to implement with the provided instructions. To alleviate this, Micromeritics is providing a custom retrofit kit specifically for these two products. To receive a kit, simply fill in the form located on our web site at: Vacuum Pump Capacitor Replacement Kit. Any ASAP 2000 or ASAP 2010 user who has already received a kit from BOC Edwards and needs specific instructions and additional mounting hardware also can obtain these items by use of the same form.
