I have a Inficon TEK-Mate Refrigerant Leak Detector. To store it till next year should I do anything besides take out the batteries? should I take the diode out and seal it in a hermetic container?
Pull the batteries and store it in a dry place. No need to remove the diode.
The only thing I would add to Tim's response from an instrumentation standpoint is to store it in a place that would not exceed the operating temperature of the instrument. Typically though, non-operating instruments can be stored at greater high and low temps than they will operate in; however, if you don't know what this is from the manufacturer, safe thing is to stick with the operating temperatures.
Hope this helps -- Watson
