so me again. So luckily a new "auction" popped up on my radar which seems to be a good deal, but I have some questions. I made a new thread since it's a new pump.
The following is being sold here:
- Leybold Turbovac 50 with air cooler and tube to the D4B
- Leybold D4B + AF 8 "oil separater"
- Controller with cable but without NT13
Now a bit more about the controller. The controller had an NT13 in it (from my research, that's the frequency converter, I think this is needed since the Turbovac 50 is a 3-phase pump.) Apparently, I can get the two pumps runned "in sync" using the "rest" of the controller.
I am a bit confused here. He couldn't name me the type of the controller. He said, that he thinks, that the controller was kind of "custom made" for the "pump trolley". the NT13 is missing since he already sold it.
So I think I basically can get it running if I somehow manage to get 3-phase electric power.
There's even a second auction which might sell me the NT13, and then I am fine. Even if the whole controller doesn't work I could build it myself. See here.
Price: About 400$ for everything. In details: 200$ for the D4B, 160$ for the Turbovac 50 and about 40$ for the controller. (Maybe a bit more, not sure.)
All you see on the pics is included. (Note the missing NT13 in the controller, crossed out by red.)
Also, the controller has 2 damages. A damaged eyelet (doesn't matter), and a damaged bracket (the grey ones), apparently, that's an output for the electrical power (probabl for the NT13, but I am just guessing here)
Anyway, assuming I can build the controller myself if this one doesn't work, is it still a good offer?
If the NT13 really just provides 3-phase electrical power, can I easily use a different generator here?
If stored dry and correctly, should that somehow hurt the pump? Assuming it also wasn't used all these years?
