West Technology has a long history of Engineers travelling to customers to service Vacuum Pumps, Helium Leak Detectors and Systems such as a Catchpot. Often the motor way and travelling can become mundane for our engineers, so receiving a glowing report from customers on the back of a site service, makes it well worth it (as well as the road trip snacks) Richard Nott (aka ‘Senior Dave’) went to see our customer Clive in Exeter to service their large collection of WTSL Twin Catchpots. Clive reported back to us, with only good things to say about Rich Nott, describing the service as efficient, professional and friendly. He also mentioned how well the Catchpots were performing and how they were as a system. See below for a full description of how a Catchpot works.
As most of you will know, Vacuum Pumps do not pump, or even like to consume water, which does create a problem if companies or labourites’ need to analyse large quantities of water. Using a Vacuum pump is an easy and efficient way to draw the water through the filter in a matter of seconds; however, it comes with the already mentioned problems. The solution: a system which will collect the expelled water from the testing in a tank – stopping the water entering the pump – a ‘Cathpot’, which also allows the waste to be pumped directly into waste water line. However, once the Catchpot is full it needs to be emptied, which causes the system to draw to a halt, dramatically slowing the procedure down, so a new solution is needed: WTSL Twin Catchpot: West Technology has designed, developed and manufactured the Twin Catch pot which allows one pot to fill, while the other is emptying. This creates CONTINUOUS vacuum supply and zero downtime on sampling. Simple.
