Abstract

An air compressor assembly (10) including a condensate management system that removes condensate from an air storage tank (18). Condensate inside the storage tank (18) descends to the lowest point in the tank, where a single port (19) is located. The port (19) can serve as both an inlet for compressed air to the storage tank (18) and an outlet of compressed air from the storage tank. The condensate is drawn from the storage tank (18) to the manifold assembly (20) through an air conduit and out of the air compressor assembly (10) through a connected tool when the tool is activated.
