Pump Rebuilt
Equipment/Beam Line: 

Pump rebuilt and operational.

Pump found not performing well.  Pump was taken apart and metal parts were soaked in mineral spirit and then in methanol.  A major repair kit was applied.  Pump was tested and it went down to 6mTorr (CG) on the bench.  This pump was then installed on turbo cart and tested.  This time on the cart it went to 20mTorr with the same CG as before.
