  • Kegel kustodian ION low pressure

    Hello, i have a problem with my kustodian ion machine.

    I get low pressure (under 10psi) on my pressure indicator when running but when i run oil test i get correct mL oil from it.

    Has anyone encountered a similar problem? What should I look for?

    Your restrictor tubing is too short. Only a little too short. The manual has instructions on how to add more of the 3/16" OD tubing, but don't add too much. You are better off leaving it as is and checking the volume frequently than getting the pressure too high and blowing out the pulse dampener tube.

      The strange thing is that before this the pressure was higher than it should be and suddenly it dropped and it looks permanently low but with the right volume of oil.

      I can not understand that.

        First things first, pressure does not equal volume. Have there been any changes done? ( new conditioner, different pressure regulator tubing installed, new norprene pulse suppression tube, ect) I would start by checking the oil control valve. a small amount of dirt or lint can cause the pressure to do strange things. Here is a link to how to clean the valve. Pay extra attention to the shims, they are a custom fit for each valve. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lPkK8BjZwk
