Yes, this regulator will work on a compressor rated for 175 PSI. The automatic overnight drain will remove moisture automatically when the pressure goes below 5 PSI.

answer 2
when the air pressure drops below 5 psi the valve in the bottom opens, and any water drains. when air pressure is again applied the valve closes.

This Milton air filter portion would need to be in the vertical position to work. The regulator would work in any position.

answer 2
No, Since the water collects by gravity in the chamber I do not think the unit will work the way you describe. The set up must be mounted as in the pictures.

Question

Does Auto-Drain feature drain tank pressure?

Does the Auto Drain feature also bleed the tank pressure slowly so that every day the tank will need to be taken from 0-operating pressure? I use my compressor infrequently, but don't want to have to wait 8 minutes for it to come up to pressure every time I want to use it.

The auto drain feature will not drain the tank, only the bowl.

Yes, the auto drain only splits out water when the main tank gets below 5 pounds pressure and I only allow this to work once a month. Remember that this drain only collects moisture that you use from the actual hose and 99% of the water collects at the bottom of the pressure tank which is usually only drained at the end of each day by opening a separate drain cock at the bottom of the tank for a second or two. No need to let all the air out, just a pound or two.

To be safe I used another moisture filter as well. I found this catches some but not all moisture, it saves filters.
