Flushing oil versus vacuum pump oil
Posted by: pbarra1

Need to do a demonstration for some cub scouts today. Someone borrowed my vacuum pump and returned it low on oil. I do not have replacement vacuum pump oil but I do have enough vacuum pump flushing oil. If I top off my vacuum pump with the flushing oil will I be able to pull enough vacuum to do my demos? They include allowing ballons to expand and boiling room temperature water. TIA

Flushing oil is generally very low viscosity. I wouldn't recommend it.
