What is the shelf life of CPC™ connectors?
THE SHELF LIFE OF A CONNECTOR IS DEPENDENT UPON THE CONNECTOR MATERIALS AND THE STORAGE CONDITIONS. CPC™ manufactures quick disconnect couplings and connections made from a variety of metal, plastic and elastomeric raw materials. In general, it is best to store any CPC™ product in an environment shielded from light at a temperature between 50°F and 90°F. The shelf life of CPC™ couplings and connections is estimated to be 3 years minimum if the storage conditions comply with those shown above.
Note: For product containing lubricated o-rings, the lubricant will dry out over time. Prior to use, it may be advisable to relubricate external O-rings. For product containing silicone O-rings, if lube is allowable, use of a synthetic lube is recommended.
