Occasionally I have water that comes out from the top of the separator. Can you advise why that happens and should the valve on top be shut tight or loosened
Read 1 answer
If you have a discharge from the air separator (or more specifically - the air vent at the top), then the air vent may not be functioning properly and may have to be replaced. Internal design of the air vent has a float which is supposed to seal off the air discharge when water level rises to a certain height. The vent cap on the air vent should be loose to allow for the air to escape.
