The iwata 925, although a good compressor, does not have a tank to store air and allow the air to cool somewhat before going into the water trap. For best results, the water trap needs to be far enough away from the compressor to allow the compressed air to cool allowing water to condense out. Go to a compressor repair shop in your area and have them make an air tank out of used parts and have them move the water seperator from the compressor to the remote tank. It should not cost more than thirty dollars or so. If space is a problem then just purchase an extra hose and attach an inline seperator like the one shown here: http://www.dickblick.com/zz269/23/ , Coil the hose and hang on wall. The coils will help to catch water. Be sure to empty the extra hose frequently. Good Luck

If your water separator is not doing the job then you have too much moisture in the compressor tank. Turn on the air relief valve to release the air. Be sure it is at a low point so that the moisture in the tank will also escape. Once the tank is completely empty screw the relief valve shut, start the compressor and then check the output for moisture. You should be good to go.

I am using an iwata eclipse cs airbrush with an iwata compressor. the comopressor seems to be working fine when power, but the airbrush is not getting and air. when i push down for air release, nothing...


Air brushes us a Theory called a "venturi" in where air pressure lowers the pressure where the paint is kept and causes it to go out the nozzle. I would try seeing if there is an obstruction in the hoses to the brush and confirm that the compressor is moving air. If none of these things are an issue also while cleaning the parts may give the appearance that the item is clean then try soaking them over night in paint thinner and replacing the O-rings and gaskets.

An in-line water separator should be used before the supply line, a good air filter wouldn't hurt either.

I have some severe free flow goin on, on my hpbcs iwata eclipse


It sounds like you have a problem with the air valve. Possible deterioration of the valve material? I am not sure what they use, but if it is a rubber the cleaning thinner MAY have destroyed its properties if the cleaner got into the air path and valve.

Iwata w400 air leak behind trigger problem


Have you traced the exact spot of the leak?
I will assume you have not. the reason it's important is because if there is a crack in the o-ring seat there is nothing you can do. So trace the leak. Try a small amount of auto air conditioner leak detector or something similar even ink from an ink pen will work. Place it in the air inlet, hook up your air line and trigger your gun for a 10 to 15 seconds. disassemble your trigger and see if you can locate the offending spot. Though this method has worked for me in the past, it's not something I would normally recommend. However the gun you have is to expensive to just write off.
The alternative is to contact Iwata and seek help.
Good luck.
