    I've got a 110 daystate compressor that I think is painfully slow doing it's job.  I've got nothing to compare it with but I've devised a test which might help us to compare one to the other. 

    What I've done and am asking you other owners to do for me (and maybe other people as well).  Connect as usual to your tank but DO NOT OPEN any valve on the tank so that you are filling ONLY the line from the compressor to the valve.   My compressor took two minutes to fill the line only from 200 bar to 300 bar.  

    Would one or more of you do the same next time you fill your tank.  Don't open the tank valve right away just time the compressor filling only the line from that 200 bar to 300 bar on the gage.  Then you can go ahead and open the valve and fill you tank as per usual 

     

    Thanks in advance.   John Heckman

    I have a very long hose, and 2 filters, and it takes 4 or 5 minutes at least from start

    Same compressor as you

    Same compressor tops a 45 min tank from 200 to 310 bar in about 5 minutes. I would consult the dealer asap. Ours came from aoa and they have been good to us. Good luck

    I’ll take a look next time I fill. Don’t want to sound controversial, but there is no way the Daystate LC110 can fill a 45 minute 66 cu ft SCBA tank from 200 to 310 bar in 5 minutes. Most of us have reported in the 15 to 20 minute range which is within the specs of the compressor.

    I have a hatsan light. Just  filling the line takes seconds,  not minutes. Mine fill a line about 3ft long from o to 300 bars in under 15 seconds. Top off my 74cf tank from 200bar back to 300 in about 20 minutes

    I just filled my guppy tank which I think is 18 cu ft from 240 bar to just under 300 and it took 9 minutes

    When you get to 310 bar, and shut the tank valve then turn off the compressor, do you hear any leaks? That’s the best time to listen to leaks before you vent off the compressor..

    Did I not understand? I believe he was asking how long to fill the hose with the tank valve closed.

    Something must be very wrong. My Yong Heng has a much lower flow rate but it can fill up my Huben K1 rifle from 150 to 300 bars in 1.5 minutes. Filling up the line just takes seconds. Suggest to contact the dealer.

    I was .  Then I added the info from the fill on the guppy.   I’ll talk with AOA.  I’ve been complaining about this since I bought it a year and a half ago.    I don’t think it’s leaking but I’m not certain about any of it.

    That’s what I would expect and I’m WAY longer.

    Not sure exact model, this is 110v 4 stage daystate. I just checked my tank and I mis spoke. it is a 30 min tank (a recertified jobbie from pyramyd) and you're welcome to watch it fill sometime. I spend almost as much time warming it up and cooling it as I do topping off my tank. I think if a similar model takes 2 min to fill a hose it is not doing its job in a big way.

    Your question prompted me to pay attention to mine this morning, and I noticed something interesting. Now I have 12.5 hrs on mine, so keep that in mine.

    I noticed a tiny drop of water coming out of the bleed drain. I spit on my finger and I did have air coming out. I next put a shot glass full of water on the tip of the drain. Confirmed that there was air.

    The valve was plenty tight.

    I released the pressure, unscrewed the hand tightening knob all the way off. I wiped down the thing, and now no leak.

    The compressor was filling before I did it, just slower.

    Mine takes 1 min to fill the line from 0-200 bar. Now that I've added a filter it takes 1 1/2 min from 0-200. 

    I have the LC110 4-stage

    How about from 200 to 300?   0 to 200 is the easy part.

    Here is another sign of trouble if it was a car engine I’d say it’s rebuild time    Not  that many hours to justify this . That’s the oil and water from the condensation drain

    If you only fill to 260 you would get rather few fills into the gun.  But it would make life easy on the compressor.

    is it oil or is there a carbon(charcoal) filter on your compressor before the drain? I dont know, just asking ❓

    My china Davv always blows dirty out the drain, I keep towels handy. One of these days I will open up the  column and see what is in it

    Yes if I were going on a week long hunting trip I might want a full tank of air, but when the compressor is only 20 feet away why stress it.

    When it gets below 250 I just tether straight into my Crown.

    I would do that before as well, but I went and spent a couple hundred on an adjustable inline huma for my tank and now I can tether from a 4500psi tank fill.

    Makes testing your gun at different fill pressures a snap, not that I've bothered doing that yet.
