German technical term on part
« on: January 29, 2018, 06:18:31 pm »
I am hoping a German speaker can help me understand what is written on this label.
The label was on a turbomolecular pump, if that helps. The first word is 'complete' the second one no idea.
Unfortunately the writing is not very clear.

Many thanks taydin. Cryptic message, I wonder if the label was placed there before or after the overhaul :-)

Yes, that's correct, but I was confused by the handwriting, at first glance I've read "Komplettüberladung" which would mean "total overcharge", which I would have interpreted as "this turbo pump was overloaded and borked".

BTW
Did one ever see such a turbomolecular pump explode? There's quite a bit of energy stored when running at nominal speed. Test chambers usually are buried underground or have wooden planks at all walls to absorb the shrapnel.

I would say the label indicates the need of the full overhaul. Otherwise I would write 'Komplettüberholt' as it has been done. But that's a guess.

Yeah, I read it more as a verdict than something that is finished. Could be wrong tho, I'm no German.  :-X

I agree with "Zweiblum" :)

"Komplettüberholung" is a noun and imo in this context it is an instruction command of what has to be done with this thing.

"komplett überholt" means imo in this context: the complete overhaul has been done. If it was successfull is another story.  ;)

But the word on the sticker reads clearly as "Komplettüberholung". So, likely, this turbomolecular pump is waiting for it's complete overhaul.
