Loud HAPSITE Noise

There are three fans in the instrument:

  1. A board fan, located on the side of the card cage, is used to cool the main circuit boards of the instrument.
  2. A column fan, located on the back of the column module, is used to cool the column.
  3. A front door fan, located on the bottom of sample loop port, is used to cool the front panel board.

Dust or debris may accumulate in the instrument and block the fans. If this occurs the instrument will emit a loud, unusual noise. Operators should contact technical support to gain assistance in clearing any fan blockage.

For further questions or troubleshooting please contact Technical Support.
