Subject: Shutdown raith S turbo / mechanical pump failed

Raith is Shutdown for all overnight operations.

Early this morning we lost pumping capability on the system when either 
the Turbo pump or the mechanical pump backing the turbo lost 
functionality.  We tested both and are still unsure as to the cause but 
we will be switching out the mechanical pump tomorrow morning and 
attempting to get the system back up for afternoon sessions after 2 PM.

We have replacement turbo lined up but wish to cover all bases to 
rectify the situation.

Thank you for your support!
