It is important to drain all the condensate from your receiver tanks every day. The water will wash the lubricant out of air tools & air cylinders plus contaminate your product and ruin the paint finish. In addition, allowing condensate levels to build in an air receiver will reduce the receiver’s storage capacity of compressed air. As a result the compressor will short cycle.
Here are pictures of auto drains in action. One where the drain is not working, and the other where the drain is in action spitting out water. Call Scales today for all your condensate management solutions.
