Case Study –  Leybold RUVAC WAU2001 Major Service

We recommend carrying out regular major servicing on vacuum pumps and blowers. Not only does it keep them running smoothly but it prolongs the life of your pump and can prevent serious damage. Not getting your pumps and blowers regularly maintained can lead to downtime for your business, and loss of revenue, so don’t take the risk.
