  • Over night Drain

    I looking for a source these drains that are at the bottom of the bowls:

    The drain at the bottom of the filter is what I am looking for. These open and closed based on pressure. When the pressure drops to about 5 to 10 psi it opens. I am planning on putting these at the bottom of my air clean outs.

    My thought is it will help keep my lines dryer.

    I tried finding the same ones you are looking for once and didn't have any luck.I ended up buying some float type and have been pleased with them so far-

      I've just replaced mine with a manual drain. The automatic one leaked air (probably, due to small particles stuck in- a defect that was described by other users of Norgreen self-drained filter/regulators).

      Both Norgreen drains, the automatic (prod.# 3000-10 and 3000-97) and manual ones (Prod.# 619-50), can be purchased separately. I don't know if they'll fit whatever you're going to have there.

        So far the only thing I've found is a Parker Purge Valve. 23 dollars is pricy.

          I have a Norgren one that needs replacing and they are asking £77 Yes 77 pounds !!!

          So 23$ sounds a good deal to me !

              Parker, Milton, and ARO are all pretty good products. I had an expensive Norgren FRL set, it didn't work worth beans. Replaced it with ARO, works great now.

                If you don't mind a little manual operation I would suggest getting some drain cocks for a semi. Spring loaded, lanyard attached, give a tug every day and you're golden.

                There's also some automatic drains that I install on trucks quite often. If you have the space for them they might work for you. They can be found cheaper than what this website sells them for. Link is just for reference.

                  Same is true for SMC products. http://www.smcpneumatics.com/
                  Not cheap, but good deals can sometimes be found on Fleabay

                    The plastic bowls on Norgren regulators usually vent when the pressure drops low and also vent if water lifts the float.

                      +1 on the truck tank drains. They're close to bullet proof
