Compressor capacity may reduce because of:

  1. Reduced volume efficiency due to abnormality of inlet/discharge valve.
    Check the inlet and discharge valves and repair or replace.

  2. Leakage from automatic unloader valve.
    Check the valve and repair or replace.

  3. Air leakage due to abnormality of piston rings and reduced volume efficiency.
    Replace piston rings.

  4. Clogged inlet filter.
    Clean the inlet filter

  5. Air leakage from piping or joints.
    Identify and repair the leakage place.
