You can call it a bleeder. On the old Quincy's, Kellogg's and such I've worked on in the past, some had the unloader valve built in to the compressor. It worked off of centrifugal force, closed once the compressor was up to speed and opened when it stopped spinning. Also adjustable, always referred to them as the unloader valve.

That was my thought too....
