Eww stay away from Pacific Air. Those guys are a bunch of yokles especially after Corky retired.

Just call up Portland Compressor in Tigard, OR and ask for a C55 filter. They cater to the industry well here.

In industry, we often had to supply breathing air for operators in areas like walk in sandblasting. The first link below is the NIOSH standards for breathing air, and the following links companies that offer equipment meeting those standards.

Dave mentioned the need to purge any air that leaked into the product side, and it is a key point. If you don't, recovery takes for ever, because the non condensible gasses act as a rebound spring in the recovery tank, pushing back against the pump discharge.

PS: WolfWurx used Portland Compressor in Portland, and they were competitive and provided good customer support. In retirement I haven't purchased any heavy industrial equipment in over a decade, but typically bought Quincy compressors and ancillary equipment from Rogers Machinery in Portland due to pricing and service.

So I'm definitely down on purging my tank sometimes I Run with a small amount of dry ice in my column. What do you guys think about running mct oil in a compressor? Looking at different food grade oils also.

Using MCT oil in a non-oil free recovery compressor, is one of the things that we tried along the way and a similar application.

Compressor oils are formulated to maximize compressor life, so MCT oil shortens the life of the compressor bearing and the piston seals separating it from the product.

As a bottom line, even MCT oil in most concentrates is not a good thang.

Definitely don't want anything in the oil at all. Just seems like the lessor of two evils I guess.
