A: Typically, oil with a viscosity of 150 - 1200 S.U.S. will be acceptable. However, because of the wide variety of oil types available, please consult our factory.
A: To set the regulator, turn the adjustment knob counter-clockwise to lower the line pressure below the required P.S.I. then, increase the pressure by turning the adjusting knob clockwise untill the desired pressure is reached.
A: Standard regulators are designed for compressed air usage but may be used on nitrogen, argon, and other inert gases, within specified ranges. Regulators with neoprene seals are available for use with CO2. Regulators must never be used with flammable gases, and the factory must approve oxygen applications.
A: Master Pneumatic has just introduced our new SENTRY Acetal-Body Water Pressure Regulators (R13, R14 Models), and also our new MINIATURE Brass Body Water Pressure Regulators (R53B, R54B Models). Consult with factory concerning regulator compatability with liquids other than water or oil.
A: The industrial environment will control the useful life of the elements. The dirtier the environment, the shorter the lifespan.
A: The automatic internal drain operates whenever liquid has accumulated in the filter bowl and a tool or valve is cycled, causing a momentary pressure drop of 2 psi or more. It also drains whenever the air supply is shut down and exhausted, overnight or for the weekend. Manual draining of filters is often overlooked in the industrial environment and M/P recommends that all filters be ordered with automatic drains.
