    Rpm

    I put a spring on instead of the silver piece and was able to adjust it to 2800. The spring has flexibility And it made a huge difference when I got it to 2800.

    Rpm

    that thing I circled stops you from increasing the RPMs. I took mine off to get it to 2800 I don’t know if it’s the correct way but no one could help me. I posted your same question here and other forums and got lectured how I didn’t know my machine. Again not sure if that’s the correct was to...

    Rpm

    Mine had a throttle limiter on the throttle cable. I took it off and adjusted it to proper rpms. Can you take a pic of it ? I called legends and they couldn’t help me. They stopped making the apex and prochem was bought out.

    Did you check to make sure the tach is accurate? I checked it on my snowmobile to make sure it’s accurate.

    I had the same issue with my apex. How low is it and how are you measuring it ?

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    I agree with what you’re saying I just don’t think you can say right now it can’t happen where you’re at or anywhere else. Unfortunately time will tell and some people can’t afford time. In a way I’m glad it hit my state the hardest first that way we’ll hopefully be the first out of this...

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    I guess it depends where you live. We have 33000 confirmed positive cases in NY. But we are getting the most tested.

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    If by washing your hands with soap and water rinses it I think a water temp of 190 and 400 psi would be doing a better job. Also its probably most likely not on carpet fibers maybe tile but it’s all getting flushed away. I guess I’m trying to convince myself that I’d be helping if I’m cleaning...

    I'm Shutting IT Down.......

    i also have read the kill temperature is about 133 degrees. So most TM get between 190-210 does that mean it’s neutralizing the virus ?

    Anyone own a prochem apex ?

    I couldn’t set it to manual specs because there was a throttle limiter on it. I took it off. But it was out there for a reason I would think. I asked to see if anyone else has the same thing on there’s. Called the company but couldn’t give me a definite answer why the limiter was on the...

    Anyone own a prochem apex ?

    Just wondering if you know what your engine rpm is set at idle and full throttle? Mine was set at 900 idle and 1800 full throttle. I was told 2700 full throttle and 900 idle by legends. Manual says 2740 but idle says 1500. I had a throttle limiter installed on mine that prevented me going any...

    Engine rpm

    That’s true. I do have it set up 4 to the door so it doesn’t seem like I’ve lost vacuum. Only started doing that for a year now. But I’d think if my rpms dropped that much I’d notice the difference in performance. When I turned the throttle to 2700 it sure sounds a lot different though. I...

    Engine rpm

    Well it might be underperforming because they are keeping the rpms under the max. But I’m thinking mine was set up even under the limits prochem sets. I just assumed my distributor set it up to spec. I did a tach test on my engine and it’s running at 1800rpm full throttle. Idle was 900. It...

    Engine rpm

    I have the 408 tri lobe blower and it has great vacuum. I have to change the throttle cable on the machine so it got me thinking about the rpm. I’ve been running it this way for 9 years 8000 hours. Didn’t adjust anything from when I got it. Figured it was set up correct now I’m wondering if...

    Engine rpm

    I have a 9 year old prochem apex. 31Hp has kabota Manual says Engine idle 1500 Rpm. 2740 rpm high speed pump on. Water pump 965-1000 Vacuum pump 3100 Rpm My question is how can the vacuum blower run 3100 if the high speed on the engine is 2740 ? I measured the engine rpm full throttle and...

    100 gal recovery tank

    I thought about an in-line filter but I’m in NY and I think if I use that type of filter it’ll freeze up on the cold days. I stay busy even through the winter. I had a few days last year when my vacuum hoses froze up. Ice forms at the machine where I connect my vacuum hoses to it. I just use...

    100 gal recovery tank

    I do. It’s not the the exterior measurements. That would be simple. It’s the baffles and 2 filter boxes. The inside is sloped I believe. I guess I will have to measure it all. Figured someone out there might know the specs to make it easier.

    100 gal recovery tank

    Thanks for his name. I do have a local guy i just need the specs of the tank to give to him. I would be wasting money to have it shipped. It sucks how you can’t get the specs anywhere.

    100 gal recovery tank

    100 gal recovery tank

    I have a 100 gal recovery tank for a prochem apex. I cannot find these listed anywhere on line for sale. I really would like to have 1 made (probably a lot cheaper) but I cannot find any links that give the specs. I need the exact same size tank as I have limited space in my 1 ton van. Tank...

    Mytee Bentley titanium swivel length ?

    I called mytee and the woman who answered knew nothing. She read the description off the website which doesn’t state the height. She then just transferred me to someones voice mail box. The box it came in is only 58 inches.

    Mytee Bentley titanium swivel length ?

    I just bought the Bentley swivel titanium 14 inch swivel. I’m 6’3” and the wand seems very short. You can’t lengthen it only shorten it if I’m correct ? I like the wand but I feel like I’m hunched over using it. I got it so I’d feel less stress on my back seems like it’ll cause more. I...

    Tapping noise coming from heat exchanger Prochem apex

    It’s been awhile since I posted this and I have noticed there are orange seals around the heat exchangers and was thinking there could be a leak coming from them. I remember cracking 1 of my heat exchangers and had to bypass 1. When I took it out and ran it It was a lot louder and the noise...
