I spoke with the Harrison people this week. They have been working on our PPV fan issue for quite some time. After extensive testing, they are convinced it is a fan issue and not a generator problem. They have contacted other generator companies and found that all are having the same issues with this type of fan. Harrison is now attempting to work with Super-Vac to find a solution. Was wondering if you ever heard back from Super-Vac?
Thanks, John

Thanks Kelly.
I spoke to the Harrison generator people at FDIC and they are having us install a check valve on the generator. This is supposed to stop the surging. I'll let you know what happens. I also talked to the Super Vac people up there, but they insisted it was a generator problem. Either way, hopefully we will find a solution. Talk to you soon,

I read your post on the Super-Vac PPV. We have just purchased one of these units and it's doing the same thing on the truck mounted 8KW generator. Did you ever get it resolved? Thanks, J. Rigney
