Harvest Right Freeze Dryer JB Pump Seal Replacement

25 May, 2017

For those interested in what it takes to replace the rear seal on the vacuum pump used by Harvest Right (JB Industries - Eliminator series DV-6E). It can be done if you have some tools and mechanical ability. EpicenterBryan provides info about the Harvest Right Freeze Dryer JB Pump Seal Replacement, saying "My vacuum pump started leaking oil out the rear seal a month or so ago. I talked with Harvest Right and they said they would replace the seal (no charge) but I asked if they would just send the parts so I could do a video for our YouTube channel. They agreed to send the parts at no charge."

**UPDATE** If you are looking to replace your pump, we highly recommend the Harvest Right Premier Pump — we have heard of no issues with the Premier Pumps from any of our customers! For more information and pricing on the PREMIER PUMPS, please contact Harvest Right directly.

**ANNOUNCEMENT** EpicenterBryan is now using a LEYBOLD VACUUM PUMP to operate our two freeze dryers. For more information and pricing on the Leybold Pump, please Contact Us.

Bryan says: I also ordered a spare JB pump so I would have one to use while repairing the first one. It's always nice to have a spare. This video is kind of long but I know some people will be interested. Feel free to skip around. Since I shot this video I've completed 4 batches and the pump does not leak.

Also, Harvest Right told me that new pumps (7.2 CFM Vacuum Pump) are shipping with their freeze dryers now have the stainless steel splash guard already installed, so be sure to check your pump before ordering that item. If you need one, I bought my stainless steel splash guard and bolts from frozenright.com. Cost was $20 including shipping.
