You aren't exceeding their psi levels are you?
So yesterday I installed my second compressor. Today, the Parker one I had blew apart where the drain catch attaches to the block. I went out and got another, same thing happened. And it's only become a problem since I put the second compressor on, same side as well.

Those see through parker ones are only rated to 150psi. Even though they should hold more technically i wouldn't run a plastic one to that pressure. Metal SMC ones, i have 3 of them, rated to 150psi, run them at 200 psi all the time
There's always one in the bunch
We had a long chat with our Parker rep about using their low pressure traps at 150psi consistently. His response was something to the effect of 'it's totally feasible but not recommended as it will cause excessive wear and shortened life span of the product'.
