- That's interesting to know that the same thing happened to your moisture tower. Somebody told me it might have been associated with embrittlement from the automatic bleeders releasing pressure too quickly and stressing the metal (it had automatic bleeders when I got it). Like you, I bypassed the cracked separator at first but later I was able to get a replacement separator tower for only $300 (discounted from $380). So now I am running thru the two factory separators PLUS the first tube of my filter array is a separator... Unlike the RIX cyclonic separator, it has what looks like a scuba valve dip tube only it points up from the inside bottom of the first tube of the filter array. Then on the second filter array tube, I have another moisture bleeder spigot at the bottom and 13X sieve above it. Then the 3rd tube is all 13X sieve. And then the fourth tube has 1/3rd 13X sieve, 1/3 Hopcalite, and finally 1/3rd activated charcoal ( just got brand new prepacked filters from Lawrence... Very nice BTW.scubasteve59 wrote:I just love it when a plan comes together! (A Team). Your set up is pretty nice there......I already have relatives "queing up" for fills off my SA6 for our annual 4th July family dive & get together. Nearly five years now and based on my experience I have nothing but thumbs up for these units. Pretty bullet proof.
BTW....one of my separator towers cracked in the same place as yours...I by passed it into a Walter Kidde moisture filter from another compressor I had and then final into a modified Sprague Hydraulic Accumulator with filter media. Works great.
Here's one place:Tommy wrote:Who sells this switch and how much?
