Fluid Service Life and Operating Guidelines

Service Life:

Fluid should be stored in temperatures nominally in the range of 10-30° C (50-86° F). Fluids should be stored in sealed containers to prevent contamination, and carries a stable shelf life for up to 5 years when un-opened.
For fluid that has been opened or is stored in effect machines - the lifetime will be reduced by 2 years once opened and when operated in the nominal temperature range.
Fluids can be stored and used at higher or lower ambient temperatures, but with loss of service life.

Operating Guidelines:

Minimum operating temperature (Ta min): 5° C (41° F)
Maximum operating temperature (Ta max): 40° C (104° F)
While it is possible to use fluid at or above these guidelines it is not advisable to do so as the risk to damage effect machines increases.
