Where is separator on Atlas Copco XAS 90

Hello. I have a Atlas Copco air compressor that we use at our farm for blowing off combine harvests and equipment from all the dust they get on them, it works awesome, but I have ran into a problem of it blowing a thin film of oil on things now.

I have read some of the posts on here but am curious where the oil/air separator filter is..?

Also, I took off the scavenger line ( the line that runs from the bottom of screw compressor to the oil reservoir?), and it had oil in it, and I was able to blow a bit of air through it.

Any pointers you can give me to point in the correct way would be very much appreciated! Thank you

Hi, the separator element is inside the oil tank, the scavenger line sucks the excess oil from the bottom of the the sep element so should have oil inside that line
Hope that helps
