Factors that add to the duty cycle are: air suspension, additional air accessories, use of an undersized compressor, frequent stops, excessive leakage from ﬁ ttings, connections, lines, chambers or valves, etc. Refer to Table A in the Troubleshooting section for a guide to various duty cycles and the consideration that must be given to maintenance of other components. COMPRESSOR INSTALLATION While the original compressor installation is usually completed by the vehicle manufacturer, conditions of operation and maintenance may require additional consideration. The following presents base guidelines. DISCHARGE LINE The discharge line allows the air, water-vapor and oil-vapor mixture to cool between the compressor and air dryer or reservoir. The typical size of a vehicle's discharge line, (see column 2 of Table A in the Troubleshooting section) assumes a compressor with a normal (less than 25%) duty cycle, operating in a temperate climate. See Bendix and/or other air dryer manufacturer guidelines as needed. The discharge line must maintain a constant slope down from the compressor to the air dryer inlet ﬁ tting or reservoir to avoid low points where ice may form and block the ﬂ ow. If, instead, ice blockages occur at the air dryer or reservoir inlet, insulation may be added here, or if the inlet ﬁ tting is a typical 90 degree ﬁ tting, it may be changed to a straight or 45 degree ﬁ tting. Shorter discharge line lengths or insulation may be required in cold climates. While not all compressors and charging systems are equipped with a discharge line safety valve this component is recommended. The discharge line safety valve is Air Dryer Governor (Governor plus Synchro valve ™ ® for the Bendix DuraFlo 596 Compressor) The Air Brake Charging System compressed air for the braking system as well as other air accessories for the vehicle. The system usually consists of an air compressor, governor, discharge line, air dryer, and service reservoir. Optional Bendix Oil Coalescing Filter Service Reservoir (Supply Reservoir) installed in the cylinder head (Tu-Flo the compressor discharge port and protects against over pressurizing the compressor in the event of a discharge line freezeup. DISCHARGE LINE TEMPERATURE When the temperature of the compressed air that enters the air dryer is within the normal range, the air dryer can remove most of the charging system oil. If the temperature of the compressed air is above the normal range, oil as oil-vapor is able to pass through the air dryer and into the air system. Larger diameter discharge lines and/or longer discharge line lengths can help reduce the temperature. The air dryer contains a ﬁ lter that collects oil droplets, and a desiccant bed that removes almost all of the remaining water vapor. The compressed air is then passed to the air brake service (supply) reservoir. The oil droplets and the water collected are automatically purged when the governor reaches its "cut-out" setting.
