We offer comprehensive maintenance and repair services, including complete reconditioning and rebuilding. When your vacuum pump requires attention, don’t discard it just yet because in most cases, we can successfully repair it to factory specifications, saving you the cost of purchasing new parts or an entire compressor. 

Types of Vacuum Pumps We Work On

Industrial vacuum pumps are mechanical devices designed to remove air or gas molecules from a closed system, creating a vacuum or low-pressure environment. While our expertise extends beyond typical vacuum pump models to cover various applications, here’s a breakdown of the common pumps that we specialize in.

Positive Displacement Pumps

  • Rotary Vane Pumps: Utilize rotating vanes to compress and trap gas, commonly used for rough vacuum applications.
  • Piston Pumps: Employ reciprocating pistons to create a vacuum through the compression and expansion of gas.

Momentum Transfer Pumps

  • Turbo Pumps: Use high-speed rotating impellers to impart momentum to gas molecules, enabling high vacuum levels.
  • Diffusion Pumps: Operate by creating a molecular flow and transferring gas molecules from the low-pressure region to the exhaust.

Entrapment Pumps

  • Cryogenic Pumps: Utilize extremely low temperatures to condense and trap gas molecules.
  • Getter Pumps: Employ chemical reactions to bind and capture gas molecules, commonly used for ultra-high vacuum applications.

Common Vacuum Issues

Numerous underlying issues lead to motor failures, from short circuits to insulation breakdowns, we tackle all causes of winding failures, using high-quality new wire and insulation resistance techniques to restore efficiency. Here are common issues motors face:

Excessive Noise and Vibration


Excessive noise and vibration in a vacuum system can indicate underlying mechanical problems caused by misalignment, worn bearings, or imbalances within the pump. Our experienced technicians can diagnose and resolve these issues, helping your vacuum system operate quietly and smoothly.



Overheating is a common issue in vacuum systems and can result from prolonged operation, insufficient cooling, or internal malfunctions which can damage pump components and reduce system efficiency. Our team specializes in diagnosing and addressing overheating issues, whether it involves optimizing cooling mechanisms, replacing worn parts, or troubleshooting internal malfunctions.

Pump Won’t Start


A vacuum pump that fails to start can disrupt production processes and cause downtime. This issue may stem from electrical faults, motor failures, or mechanical obstructions within the pump. We can diagnose and repair pump start-up issues to keep your operations running with minimum downtime.



Leaks in a vacuum system can compromise its ability to maintain proper pressure levels and can cause contamination of the process environment.  We offer comprehensive leak detection and repair services to identify and resolve leaks effectively. Utilizing advanced techniques and equipment, we improve the long-term integrity and efficiency of your vacuum system.

Oil Contamination


Oil contamination is a common issue in vacuum pumps that rely on lubrication for operation. Contaminants can enter the oil through leaks, improper maintenance, or degraded seals, leading to reduced pump efficiency and potential damage to internal components. We specialize in addressing oil contamination issues through thorough oil analysis, filtration, and replacement services to restore the purity of the pump oil.

Longer Processing Time


Longer processing times in a vacuum system can indicate inefficiencies or mechanical issues that need attention. These issues may arise from insufficient vacuum levels, pump wear, or process parameters that require optimization. Our team at Advanced Air & Vacuum offers comprehensive diagnostics to identify the root cause of the issue and find a custom solution to meet your specific requirements.
