Hi, subject says it all. Last night, while bringing home my used SilAir 30D (that I got for a VERY good price!), it tipped on the side and some oil spilt out of it! I was wondering if some permanent damage may result from this little accident? I didn't run the unit yet and it has been sitting in my office for over 12 hours.

I tried finding info on this but couldn't find anything, not even on SIlentaire website.

Any compressor-gurus around that could answer this?

Thanks in advance,
Christian
