Terpenes damage recovery pumps?

Im contracted to install a large co2 extraction system and when i asked how often the seals to the recovery pump needing to be replaced the company engineer said they dont. Maybe this is true but when i asked y dont the terpenes damage its seals he looked at me like I was crazy and said that doesnt happen. Ive replaced seals for a few systems and have read both eden and apeks recommend doing it regularly but this was a very large electric piston pump which i have no experience. So does anybody know if hes right or the reason why it wouldnt?

Because he’s a salesman, all pumps need maintenance…

its already bought and he didnt say no maintenance just not the piston seals for years

Is the pump he is suggesting the same kind used in the oil industry? Because I hear that some SC companies are looking to replace their pneumatic pump with those.

Agreed.
But what material are the seals made of?
