Leaking or bleeding or failing regulator
by Tom J
In line air regulator
You may have answered my question with your response to this question. But I might have a different issue, maybe not..
The regulator seems to be continually slowly bleeding off?
I just finished installing my new used Ingersoll Rand compressor. It is a 2 stage 175psi compressor. I installed a regulator which is also used that came with the compressor, Coilhose pneumatics brand. My problem is that it leaks or is bleeding off overage pressure coming into the regulator near the T handle. There is a hole which the air comes out of. I have the outgoing pressure set to 110psi but the incoming pressure that is higher than the 110 bleeds off through the hole near the T handle. I close off the incoming air and the pressure in the line stays at 110psi.
Why would the regulator leak any pressure higher than what it is set for?
