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

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.
