About 3 months ago I had to replace the TPH060 Pfeiffer turbo on our MAT252 with a TPH062. Pfeiffer is no longer rebuilding the TPH060 and the TPH062 is there replacement/upgrade. Not being able to find a replacement in a reasonable amount of time I went with the replacement from Pfeiffer. I had to wait 2 wks for a rebuilt TPH062 which cost about $2900 US. According to Pfeiffer there aren't too many options left without upgrading the turbo controller. Perhaps it would be good to hear from anyone who has found a way around this problem.

Dear IRMS folks -

We need a rebuilt or used Pfeiffer/Balzers turbomolecular pump, model
062 (best), 060 (acceptable) or, if nothing else is available, a  050
(050 no longer rebuildable).

None of these are available, except 060 upgrades and 062 exchanges,
from  Pfeiffer/Balzers. Any information about turbo suppliers or stuff
you  may have on the shelf would be much appreciated. Also, Any
information aboue converting dleta E IRMS to curent P-B (or
other)turbopumps would also be aprpeciated.)

Thanks in advance.
