Can I broaden the pressure differential between kick-in and cut-off more than 30psi?


My unloader cuts-off at 150 and kicks-in at 120.

Are Continuous Run Unloader Valves able to be adjusted so that it kicks-in at 90psi and cuts-out at 150? I've attempted to adjust mine, but it doesn't seem to be able to span more than 30psi. Gas powered Carroll Stream 24 CFM 250psi 30 gallon. Thanks!

Broaden differential pressure

It depends on the valve, but the most I've seen is about 30 PSI.

Please clarify why do you want to do this and was the manufacturer offering no help?
