16-60 has oil in the air and popping relief valve

by Mb

My compressor is putting oil back into the air filter and is popping off the relief valve. I changed the separator and it is still not loading up.


All the gauges are showing good but when i kick it on it looks like the oil is coming back to the separator where the oil will rise in the gauge.

I figure a check valve might be replaced. Also the small oil check valve send to be blowing off.

Any input would be great, thanks.

When is all this happening? Are you not getting air out? (you mention not loading)

Or when you shutdown? (much of this sounds like during shutdown)

Please give a "blow by blow", from startup - what you do, what the machine does in response.

You can start with looking for a bad/leaky intake valve, though.
