You can open your muffler and find an aluminum sponge inside that can be cleaned with water. You can find some graphite debris coming from the vacuum pump. One of the main questions from our customers are if our milking machines work with oil because they see some black liquid coming out from the muffler. When milking some condensation happens inside of the vacuum pump that can be transferred to the muffler. This is not Oil. That’s why it is important to dry your vacuum pump at least 1 per month, to keep your graphite pallets dry.
