Hello all . I own a GX 11FF model screw compressor . During summer when the machine continuously runs for about 10 hours (day time ) , the temperature of the compressor remains 45 - 50 degree Celsius / 100 degree Fahrenheit. Hence during the use of air gun in the pipe line , heavy discharge of water occurs

Sweating in the airpipe line in GX 11 FF solved

Thanks all ! The problem has been solved .
The dryer unit keeps on tripping , because the refrigerant gas R134A has been over filled . hence the dryer pressure when checked showed Around 60-70 psi . Now the the gas has been filled exactly 500gms . Now the dryer works without tripping off .
Pressure dew point earlier was 40 degrees Celsius and 110 Fahrenheit
Now it remains at 10-12 degree Celsius and 20 degree Fahrenheit .

The "FF" stands for Full Feature which means It has a dryer, as you look at the compressor, the dryer is on the left.

It sounds like it's not working, there should be a little reset button in there, press it and it should start again.

Failing that, make sure the fan turns, check inside the electrical panel and make sure there isn't a trip switch that's tripped, also there are 2 grey filters in the dryer, they could be saturated, get them replaced, but make sure you have drained all air before undoing the filter bowls.

After you have checked all that, post on here your findings.
