Default Older Oxycon?

I'm looking at a Devilbiss MC 44-90, hasn't been used in 10 years. Can anyone tell me if there would be any specific problems with an older machine, or one that hasn't been used in a while? It was purchased in 1990, not sure if it was purchased new or used...

TIA!

The Devilbiss I have is a 4490 and it is an older one. HOWEVER, and this is a big caveat, mine was completely rebuilt by Oxygen Plus. The key would really be knowing how pure the oxygen output is. If you can find a local company that will test it for you, I would definitely do that before purchasing it.
