PR life on Mitsubishi LVPlusII

PR life on Mitsubishi LVPlusII

PR life on Mitsubishi LVPlusII

Does anyone have any idea of the expected life on the pr optic in a Mits?  We put one in earlier this year and they tell me at 550 beam on hrs the pr optic needs changed.  I was expecting 1500 to 2000 from the sales pitch.  Kind of salty at $1300 for the optic.  Just trying to figure out if this is what I should expect in the future.

RE: PR life on Mitsubishi LVPlusII

I believe we go by what our machine is set and that is 2000

RE: PR life on Mitsubishi LVPlusII

PR life usually depends on the contamination levels in the resonator and optics care. On newer machines, one year from a PR is not uncommon. If you clean the PR yourself, try using 99.9% HPLC grade acetone or methanol as a final clean. This will help maintain low absorption.  

RE: PR life on Mitsubishi LVPlusII

Thanks for the input.  It turned out that the PR didn't need changed at all, but that does help me expect when to change it.
