Agilent Vacuum Pump Oil Exhaust Filter
The cartridge has a limited life time that depends on the pump application. The cartridge clogging activates the by-pass device so
that the gases from the pump are directly sent to the external ambient to avoid dangerous pump overpressures.
In this case the oil mist are diffused into the atmosphere indicating that the cartridge is obstructed and, to avoid the ambient pollution, it is advisable to change the cartridge.
