I am not seeing any moisture past my filter separator during extended run times.
I had posted before of my inlet and outlet temps during one cycle, I had a inlet temp of 128 vs. an outlet temp of 75, with extended running I am seeing inlet temps of 185 vs outlets of 78-80 degrees. This is with the garage being 70 degrees. I am getting my readings with a infrared temp gun at the inlet and outlet fittings.
One quirk that caught me by surprise a little was the first time the compressor shut down after filling the tank, the unloader valve has to bleed off the additional air in the rack.
I experianced that same thing, made me think for a minute what I had messed something up, lol.
I installed a Wilkerson auto drain ($65) on the drip leg and an electric auto drain ($90)on the compressor tank.
Someday I am going to get my refrigerated units connected, but . . . .
