“The hands-on work with vacuum systems built with glass ejectors and condensers was fascinating.”Thomas Musial
“I really enjoyed having operating vacuum systems set up with problems that we could attempt to troubleshoot on our own.”Bryan Rose
VacAdemics Education Series
The VacAdemics Education Series is a set of six articles authored by Graham engineers that originally appeared in Chemical Engineering. The articles provide insight into troubleshooting techniques, worked examples identify in-field performance problems and the required corrective action, process pressure control and selecting the right vacuum system for your application.
