  • Unable to flow, maintain pressure above 1 mL/min, 4000 psi

ENVIRONMENT

  • Alliance 2695
  • Empower 2, Empower 3
  • Third-party halo column

CAUSE

The third-party column is used in a method that runs up to approximately 3700–4200 psi. Excessive stress is placed on 2695 plunger seals and high-pressure valves.

FIX or WORKAROUND

  2. Rebuild the high-pressure valves if necessary. (HP Valve Rebuilt kit Part Number WAT045424)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The 2695 user manual states a theoretical limit of 5000 psi. With normal running at 3000 psi, more frequent PMs are recommended.
