  • Sanction Standard AC - Oil pressure issue

    Starting to use a sanction standard my center got from another one of our companys centers that closed. I worked most of the kinks out but one is kinda messing with my head. I got the oil pressure between 12-15psi when idle like it should be, volume tests come out perfect every time, but whenever the oil is diverted to the oil hed instead of back to the tank the oil pressure spikes up to about 25psi. So basically every time the machine puts a load down the oil pressure jumps from 15 to 25psi. I know this isnt normal and ive cleaned out the oil control valve exactly how the manual described. Didnt help. My other Phoenix machine the oil pressure is rock solid the whole time. But this one is always jumping around. I know that in the manual it says anything over 20psi and you risk blowing the pulse dampener tube, I dont want to do that obviously

    What would cause this? Is it possibly a clogged line going to the oil head maybe?

    Sounds as if there is an obsrtuction somewhere from the oil valve and the oiling tip. Here's a link for more possible causes.....

      I had the same thing, you need one more small shim in the electric valve.(no body sells them, got one from the motor rebuilder shop the fixed my drive motors.) some how the spring tention changes over age. To test this just gently loosen the valve (half turn) and you will see it calm right down. One of my mach. would not work with the larger shim and needed a new valve. ($ 120.00+ ) Too much!
