Atlas Copco GA 160 smoke in air filter
by: shaikh KSA

we are also facing same problems, during compressor stopping a heavy amount of Oil mist/ smoke comes from air filter. also air filter getting damage due to oil.

My compressor model is GA 160. already checked oil separators, oil stop valves, parallel lube solenoid valves, loading unloading assembly. and many possibilities, but still it does not stops.

kindly any one please suggest what can we do more to solve it out??
