KJLC TKO-FF Hydrocarbon Flushing Fluid

A ‘‘light-end’’ distillation cut used to improve mechanical vacuum pump cleaning.

Like a car, a vacuum pump’s fluid is changed at regular intervals to remove contaminants that have collected in the fluid and to restore lubricity. Typically, the pump is just drained and refilled with fresh oil; however, filling the pump with TKO-FF Flushing Fluid (after draining) then running the pump for 10 minutes before filling with the correct oil after draining the TKO-FF substantially improves the pump’s lifetime.

NOTE: Decomposition: Normal combustion forms carbon dioxide; incomplete combustion may produce carbon monoxide.

WARNING: Use TKO-FF only in pumps made for hydrocarbon fluids.

Shelf Life

It is strongly recommended using all fluids and greases at the time of receipt, however when storage is necessary, rotate older stock into use first and observe the recommended parameters listed below.

Hydrocarbon Oils

The hydrocarbon oil products do not have an expiration date specified. The longevity of products shipped is based primarily on the storage and handling conditions after the product leaves the control of the Kurt J Lesker Company. Limited laboratory testing indicates that all products will last more than three years from the date of shipment, if unopened and stored in a dry and dark environment at a temperature range of 60F-85F (15-30C). It is up to the individual customer to evaluate the longevity (expiration date) of the product based on their particular storage and handling conditions.
