Pump Down

Hey Gang,

This morning I found that the last user had left the rough pump valve
cranked all the way open. This is a big no-no.  Without LN2 in the trap,
there is a VERY good chance we will get major backstreaming of oil into
the chamber.  The last time this happened the system went down for 9
months.

Refill the trap, rough pump it down (yes, you have to wait), close the
rough pump valve.
Thanks,
Tony
