The UV head contains the controls for
vacuum pump, as well as the UV light and the integrator.
Since the vacuum control is simple on/off
(with a manual vacuum release), you could easily find the vacuum pump wiring
and build your own switch. And find the release tube in the base and replace
But the question is – why? Unless the head is badly damaged beyond
repair, what is the purpose?

Subject: question re: nuarc UV
I was wondering if these units can work just as a vacuum
frame, without the UV source. Do they work independent of each other?
Can the UV head be taken off the machine? And just the
bottom part, the vacuum frame be used for exposure in the sun?
