Stefan Engel

Manager Precision Plus Europe

Munich, Germany Office


Meet Stefan Engel, Manager of our Precision Plus Europe office; located in beautiful Munich, Germany. Stefan came to P+ four years ago as a Field Sales Engineer. He quickly worked his way up the ladder to get where he is today - managing the entire European office and distribution center, including the Sales and Customer Service staff.


Stefan was instrumental in the development of the P+ Europe location and notes it as one of his most memorable experiences. “Since the beginning I had a major impact during the starting phase of the European Distribution Center and the business.” says Stefan. “It is good to see that all the efforts helped to bring this to such a big success.”


He also credits much of P+ Europe’s success to his team, for having brought the level of customer satisfaction to such a high standard. He describes his office atmosphere as respectful, with a lot of laughing, but also concentrated working. “The team has been together for a long time, so we know each other’s strengths and weaknesses.”


Q & A with Stefan

What are your hobbies outside of work?
Theater, books, traveling, music, movies, wine and especially beer (I mean I am from Munich!).


If you were a vacuum part, what would you be and why?

A bearing - keep rolling and rolling!

Q & A with Chris

I enjoy taking a part from start to finish.  I appreciate seeing the finish product.


What is your favorite thing about working for P+?
The camaraderie between employees.


If you were a vacuum part, what would you be and why?
A Vane. It requires a high tolerance and is a critical feature of the pump [team] to create a vacuum.

Is It Time to Change Your Vacuum Pump Oil?


The oil in a vacuum pump is the lifeblood of the pump.  It provides the seal that enables the pump to create a vacuum.  Because of this, proper maintenance - including routine oil changes - is critical for good vacuum operation.

Assuming that the pump is in good operating mechanical condition, you can easily determine if the oil is due for a change based on its color (see Color Chart below). If the oil is dark brown in color, or worse, like black coffee, it should be replaced immediately.  The color chart below indicates the degree of thermal ageing & therefore the remaining useful life of the oil in your rotary pump.

Oil should be changed before it has reached color 4.  If the oil is allowed to degrade to the extent that colors 6 & 7 are reached, the pump may have suffered damage & should be fully serviced prior to re-use. Good vacuum pump oil is, in general, 8 to 10 times the cost of typical motor oil, but is vital to proper pump operation.  Oil used in rotary vacuum pumps is a special product, vastly different from motor oil. There are no additives such as rust inhibitors since such additives would be separated from the base fluid and adhere to internal pump surfaces as a gummy substance.
