I gave this product 4 stars only because there was no documentation included with the packaging. I had to go to Ingersoll Rand's website and download the appropriate manual. In the days before broadband internet, this would have been a major pain.
I sent an email to IR's tech support folks and got an answer within 24 hours. They said you have to use a lubricating oil that is compatible with the rubber seals in the lubricator and the oil used in the compressor. I asked about using Marvel's Air Tool Oil and they said it is NOT COMPATIBLE. I found a bottle of IR's air tool oil on my last visit to Northern Tool and that's what I'll be using. I guess all the old Marvel oil that I've been using over the years to lube my air tools will be displaced by the IR oil as the tool is used. As far as adjusting the drip rate, I set the regulator to 90 PSI and unhooked the discharge side of the lubricator. While holding a piece of white paper about a foot away from the discharge, I adjusted the drip rate while watching the oil splatter on the paper. It's probably set a little too high and as I become familiar with it's operation, I can adjust it up or down as need be. You can see the oil drop build inside the adjustment knob and when the drop gets big enough, it drops into the airstream and goes downline.
You can see in the pic that I located the lubricator directly on the hose reel. At first I was going to run two lines from the compressor but that turned into a plumber's nightmare. I T'd off before the lubricator and ran another line to a second hose reel. Now I don't have to worry about oil in the line when I'm painting or doing other stuff that doesn't need lubrication.
Ingersoll Rand's online support is great. That is reason alone to buy their products.
