Filter-Regulator-Lubricator (FRL)

Set Up the FRL

  1. Turn the lubricator adjustment knob all the way down (counter-clockwise).

  2. Turn the air pressure regulator all the way down and disconnect the outlet air line from the push-to-connect fitting.

  3. Start to turn the air pressure regulator, which allows air to free flow out the outlet side, while watching the lubricator site window.
    NOTE: To prevent air tool oil from spraying, we recommend holding a paper towel or shop rag to the outlet side.

  4. When you see oil exiting the outlet side, and when a drop forms and falls rapidly in the side window, start to turn the lubricator adjustment knob clockwise. Stop turning the knob when you see one drip every five seconds.

NOTE: Because the machine uses a small amount of air for every air blast, it's better to set it up on the higher side of the drip rate.
