Was looking on the SMC site at the mufflers and shit they have for their valves and it got me thinking...

If you've got your Fill and Dump Valves directly connected (no hoses) to your Tank... will and oil mists shoot out of your Dump valves when opened?

Do you all always get an exhaust cap for them? Or just let them sit there open and free?


Thanks all!

huh?
i thought the same thing, but then i remembered i JUST figured out how to wire a valve.... but the only OIL used in a bagged vehicle is either in an oasis compressor, or a york compressor (right?)...

i thought there was oil in the ViAir compressors?

well what about water spitting out of the Dump Valves (the water not caught by the water trap going from the compressor to the tank)?

I believe oil lubricated the piston, but never enters the air line.

I have oil coming from my air commander that's coming out of exhaust valve...

But SMC valves can take it... don't worry with that!
