Vacuum pumps are used for a wide variety of applications including evaporation, distillation and filtration to name a few. It is important to choose a vacuum pump that matches your specific lab application and it is for this reason that vacuum pumps can be categorized into Diaphragm, Diffusion, Scroll, Ion, Rotary-Vane, and Turbomolecular pumps.

Beckman DU-650 won't cal wavelength
After running the built in wavelength cal function, it fails. It seems to function fine except for this. Using other standards, it appears the wavelength is off by 5 or 6 nm. Is there some secret code I can shift the range to where it expects? Or anyone have a service manual so I can make an adjustment?

DPS-600 PeakSimple and COM ports
I am trying to set up an external computer to run PeakSimple and just display the results from a DPS-600 gas chromatograph. Could someone tell me what has to be run on the DPS-600 and any configuration settings that may be needed. Are virtual COM ports needed? And similarly what setting on the external PC?

Hybrid Vacuum Pump Reduces Oil Changes by 90%

The VACUUBRAND® RC 6 Chemistry-HYBRID vacuum pump dramatically reduces service interruptions and costs compared with conventional rotary vane pumps. You get the vacuum range of a rotary vane pump (2x10-3 mbar) and the service advantages of a corrosion-resistant diaphragm pump. The RC 6 reduces condensation in pump oil and continuously distills solvents from the oil. Ideal for circumstances in which condensing and corrosive vapors are present routinely or in large quantities. Typical applications include freeze drying and distillation.
