Metraclark in partnership with JB Industries are rolling out Pump Days in South Africa. Pump Days are a simple event where anybody in the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry who has purchased a JB Vacuum pump from Metraclark in the past will be able to bring it on assigned days for a free service and clean up as well as a report on any major issues.
The technician will inspect the pump for any obvious issues such as missing feet, a dirty sight glass, oil leaks and any electrical problems. The pump is then switched on and the drain valve is opened to release the old oil and any dirt in the system. The vacuum pump oil is replaced with new oil to the correct level and a micron gauge is attached. If the pump pulls down to 50 microns, then the pump will be cleaned and returned to the customer. If not a further inspection is done to find out where the problem is.
It’s a bit like having a service plan on your motor vehicle except for JB vacuum pumps. This handy little service has been going on for more than 40 years in the USA with more than 1000 JB Vacuum Pumps serviced annually. It’s no wonder that they receive vacuum pumps that have been in operation for up to 35 years.
Metraclark will be offering this service at Frigair this year 3 – 5 June 2015 at Gallagher estate. So remember to bring in your JB Vacuum Pump when you visit the show, drop it off at the designated drop off area at the entrance. We will issue you a ticket with a reference number take your pump home with us, administer the care that it deserves and return it to you the following week at any of our 25 branches within South Africa.
