The Sigma-Tek 1U128-006 is a pump which carries a warranty for 2-years or 1000 hours.

It provides clean, dry air for operation of air driven instruments in aircraft operating at medium altitudes. Pump rotates clockwise or counterclockwise in vacuum or pressure mode. May be mounted in either a vertical or horizontal position. FAA approved as a direct replacement for all instrument pumps but is not intended for supplying air to deicing boots. Mounting gasket furnished. Install suction regulator in line to instruments. Delivers 6 In. Hg vacuum (2.9-8.5 minimum CEM) or 6 In. Hg pressure (3.7-8.5 minimum CEM) from 1500 to 4000 RPM.

The pump I purchased was delivered promptly and in good condition. It replaced a pump that failed prematurely. Sigma Tek stood behind the product and made things right without a bunch of fuss.

The Good: Last 2 Sigma-Tec pumps lasted well over 1000 hours. Since they can turn either direction, I can keep one spare pump for multiple airplanes. The Bad: Different shape pump can make R&R tricky if currently using a different brand pump. Price is high, and zero core value makes price harder to swallow. No wear gauge. Reality: Pump costs twice as much but lasts twice as long, fewer scary moments IFR, less down time/expense replacing blown pumps.

Mine howled and died at 700 hours/5 years. Previous one lasted 1600+ hours before removal. No core value, and with this lifespan, theres no point investing this much money into a pump that lasts only as long as a Tempest at $269. Sigmatek was disinterested and unresponsive to my experience.
