FOR THOSE OF US USING RIGAKU RU 200 GENERATORS .... A PROBLEM WITH THE COOLING 
SYSTEM FOR THE TURBO PUMP MIGHT BE ENCOUNTERED.  THE COOLING LINES FILL WITH
SCALE DUE TO THE ALKALINE REACTION WITH THE ALUMINUM COOLING RING.  RIGAKU
HAS CHANGED THE DESIGN TO COPPER AND WILL SELL YOU AN UPGRADE FOR A FEW
HUNDRED DOLLARS.  WE CLEANED THE GROOVE ON OUR MACHINES AND PRESSED A 
PIECE OF COPPER TUBING INTO THE GROOVE.  THE PROBLEM IS SOLVED FOR ABOUT
10 CENTS IN COPPER TUBING AND 30 MINUTES WORK.  IF ANYONE HAS A PROBLEM 
WITH THEIR PUMP COOLING LINES CLOGGING TRY THIS ONE.  GIVE ME A CALL FOR
MORE SPECIFIC HELP ON THIS MATTER.
