Should be the same if the rubber plugs held the nitrogen for 10 years.

Alot would depend on the manufacturing practices the day it was dehydrated and sealed. Mineral oil or POE? Even the best practices can have problems at times and a small amount of moisture would tend to lend itself to corrosion? No matter how careful we TRY to be. Just a thought.

If you end up using it,make sure you install suction and liquid line dryers for possible acid contamination .I.E. Sporlan HH filter dryers.
