View Full Version : Recovery equipment and vac pump

31-10-2014, 08:32 AM
Hi all

need to purchase some new pump out units and vac pumps. Been into FSW to look at the Value range prices look good but is the kit. Anyone recommend a good pump out unit or vac pump at reasonable cost. We currently using yellow jacket but new kit much more expensive than other kit. Is it worth it ? Also need to purchase new field laptops for the techs any recommendations at reasonable cost. Need to withstand a bit of abuse.

We use all the well know makes and models and of them
all the ones that seem to last through all the abuse we put
them through are the CPS Pro set.

I have seen all the others fail where this one seems to just
plod on. I have seen them bounce across the floor because
someone just flooded it with HP liquid and we have one where
the discharge gauge needle has 2 distinct kinks in it, from
where someone tired to recover OFN under pressure from a system.

The are auto and manual and are not too heavy but pull large amounts
of liquid with ease.

I have a value recovery machine, its the twin cylinder version and am happy with it after 18 months.


I believe they make them for Refco, though the housing is a different shape.

I have mastercool recovery unit for many years now never had a problem with it.
Telstar vacuum machine, never let me down.

Just remember that these machines needs maintenance and looked after so they will service you fine for many years.
