Safety Concern – E2M0.7, E2M1 and E2M1.5 Series Rotary Vane Pump Motor Capacitors
Welcome to the Edwards E2M0.7, E2M1 and E2M1.5 capacitor upgrade program information web site. The following pages have been designed to help you determine if your Edwards vacuum pump requires a capacitor upgrade. If it is determined that a capacitor upgrade is necessary for your E2M0.7, E2M1 or E2M1.5 pump then in most cases you will be able to place the order for the free replacement capacitor kit directly with Edwards from this web site.
It is most likely that you were directed to this web site from a letter which you received concerning this free upgrade program. If this is not the case and you would like to download this letter for your reference please access the download link below.
This capacitor upgrade is needed for any E2M0.7, E2M1 and E2M1.5 pump that is fitted with either a plastic-cased motor capacitor or a metal-cased capacitor fitted with a plastic electrical connector. To minimize risk of fire you must replace the capacitor or pump as soon as possible. You should also ensure there is no combustible material in the vicinity of the pump and only continue to operate the pump when attended until the pump is upgraded.
The pictures on the next page should allow you to identify whether your pump needs a capacitor retrofit or not.
