Oil Shelf Life

Each DEKKER vacuum system is tested and checked at the factory prior to shipment to ensure trouble-free operation. In the unlikely event you encounter a problem, we recommend that you consult with your local distributor for parts/service. Remember, when calling for service, parts or system information, always have the pump or system model number and serial number ready.

WARNING! Before attempting any repairs, disconnect all power from the system by switching off power at the main breaker or disconnect switch. Always use appropriate Lock Out – Tag Out procedures.

Vmaxol and Duratex brand vacuum pump oils have an indefinite shelf life under the right conditions. As long as the container has not been opened or left outside, there should not be a reason for the lubricant to deteriorate. If the product has been stored for over two years from the date of manufacturing, a sample can be sent to DEKKER Vacuum Technologies for testing and re-certification.
