Screw compressor dumps air when get to a certain pressure

Hi,

If the air is ‘dumped’ out of the safety valve, then either the pressure is set too high, or the safety valve is faulty. Most probably the first thing.

Check the rated (maximum) pressure of the machine and your pressure setpoint.

Best,

Cas
