    Auto drain? YES

    The auto drains that I've had always had timers

    One timer for how often the drain comes on 1-60 min

    One timer for the length of the drain cycle 1-30 sec

    We have an automatic valve setup on our compressors. Every 45 minutes it opens for about 15 seconds. Seems to be working well and no drop in pressure to the mills

    We've been using a smaller California air tools compressor w/ dryer for our Roland 51d for about 2 years and it's been great. Air comes out dry and the compressor is virtually maintenance free. All I've had to replace is the water separator bowl (about $20). I will say the delivery packaging was lacking and gauges were cracked on delivery, but California Air Tools was quick to remedy the situation and send me replacements at no charge. As long as the specs of the compressor meet your mill, I'd say go for it.

    How is the California Air Tools compressor holding up for you? What model number are you using?

    we ended up going for a scroll compressor and refrigerated air dryer. Autodrain installed underneath the air receiver.

    bit of overkill for our setup but we have been advised that it is the quietest setup.
