Check Safety Valve
To Check Safety Valve
If the safety valve does not work properly,
over-pressurization may occur, causing air tank rupture
or an explosion. Before starting compressor, pull the ring on the safety
valve to make sure that the safety valve operates freely. If the valve is
stuck or does not operate smoothly, it must be replaced with the same
type of valve.
To Drain Tank
Set the Auto/On/Off switch to "OFF".
Turn regulator knob counterclockwise to set the outlet pressure to zero.
Remove the air tool or accessory.
Pull ring on safety valve allowing air to bleed from the tank until tank pressure is
approximately 20 psi. Release safety valve ring.
Drain water from air tank by opening drain valve (counter-clockwise) on bottom of
tank. NOTE: Tilt tank forward to drain tank completely.
Water will condense in the air tank. If not drained, water
will corrode and weaken the air tank causing a risk of air
After the water has been drained, close the drain valve (clockwise). The air
compressor can now be stored.
NOTE: If drain valve is plugged, release all air pressure. The valve can then be
removed, cleaned, then reinstalled.
