With lots of failing TCV's, ViVA Performance is here to offer a solution to this common problem. Most TCV's fail because oil has entered into the TCV unit causing it to become dirty and sticky thus causing it to fail. We have developed a filter that is placed in-line between the compressor raw input (Red Hose) and the TCV. This filter will catch all the oil blow-by. This will ensure no oil reaches the TCV which can cause failure.
Our in-line filters are manufactured specifically for filtering air, unlike other filters which are designed for water filtration. The clear acrylic housing allows instant visual inspection for contaminates. The hose connections are 1/4".
