The 2nd stage of my 3 stages air compressor is blowing off. what could be the problem here.


Garnet, pretty hard to even guess with the scarcity of info.

Do you know the pressure that this PRV is set at, and is it blowing at that pressure? If so, then you have an overpressure developing.

If it’s letting go sooner than it’s supposed to, then the PRV itself may be at fault.

Can you please provide a bit more information, the make and model of your compressor, and upload a couple of photos of it?
