Can you bypass a air governor?

If the air pressure governor does not cycle properly between 90 and 120 psi, air pressure can build up until the safety valve opens. There is no way to bypass the safety valve, and a problem there would not require manual draining of the tanks.

What is the purpose of an air compressor governor?

The governor (Fig. 20), which is usually compressor mounted, operates in conjunction with the compressor and maintains reservoir air pressure between a predetermined maximum and minimum pressure. The governor will normally cut in 20-25 psi below the cut-out pressure.

At what PSI should the air compressor governor cut in and out?

When air tank pressure rises to the “cut-out” level (around 125 pounds per-square-inch or “psi”), the governor stops the compressor from pumping air. When the tank pressure falls to the “cut-in” pressure (around 100 psi), the governor allows the compressor to start pumping again.
