    If it is rated at less than the the main tank, you need a PRV on the line such that it will blow before the low pressure tank can. However, if you prefer changing the rotation direction, it would be a lot wiser to re-design other components to accommodate that change. Turn this dial to the "Closed" position. My opinion is, you either turn down the pressure output of the compressor to PSI and run that pressure for both tanks, or you get a tank rated for the PSI of the original compressor. If an air tool draws more air than the air compressor can deliver even when running full out the supply and pressure of compressed air to the air tool will decrease. I can think of three possible ways, two of which are pretty straightforward: Set the pump cutoff pressure to and connect the tanks either in series or parallel.

    Apply RTV adhesive to the male threads of your 1/2" to 3/8" coupler. Using an impact driver or brute strength and a wrench of your choice, install the coupler.I ripped the motor off and ran a line in from the compressor at the bottom and a line out at the top to the gun.

    Add Another Air Tank forum? Adding a second tank to an air compressor will increase the CFM of the compressed air system but not the air compressor pump CFM. This is important to remember.Adding a tank gives you more pre-compressed air supply for your tools.

    If you add another air tank to your air compressor, you will be able to use higher demand air tools for a longer period of time. If, however, the air supply and.Adhesive not necessary.

    Process of adding an Auxiliary Tank to an Air Compressor. One of the keys to victimization air compressors to drive tools is maintaining steady pressure.Where should the pressure regulator be located…if it stays in the same location, would back pressure from other tank be a problem?

    Wrap Teflon tape around the threads of a male quick connect and thread it into one of the openings in your air tank. · Attach a short, flexible.The air line would run into the side of the vertical tank and out the top.

    If you add a tank when you're not using compressed air, then your air compressor may run and fill both tanks. This means that your air.Read the above post.

    You may note wish to have an air filter here, so instead you can just insert a coupler to the Tee, and then connect your air hose or line that connects to your air tool!

    This air hose will have a coupler on one end, and a connector on the other.

    Speeding up your compressor may require you to keep the intake air cool.

    The key benefit on offer from adding or connecting another air receiver tank to your air compressor is the ability to have a larger storage of air!

    If I add a second tank to my air system does it matter if I add the tank before or after my air dryer?

    Connecting Two Air Tanks Together – How to Add An Additional Tank To The System forum? Plumbed this way the one pressure switch on the air compressor would monitor the pressure in both tanks and shut the air compressor off when the pressure reached in both tanks reached the normal cut out setting of the original compressor and tank.

    This will result in a duty cycle reduction even if the pump in running for longer.

    Pull the ring back on the female end of the air hose and fit it over the male connector on the air tank.

    Will they ever fill before the motor melts down, unlikely.

    This is a very important feature of any compressed air system, and is why the secondary tank is installed after the primary.

    They mentioned that we would need to add the smaller tanks before the bigger tanks.

    On the basis of aesthetics alone, I have seen very visually similar motors used on l tanks and, therefore, have some grounds to believe the motor would be sufficiently capable…?

    Take notice of the air pressure gauge and fill your new tank up to psi given you followed our instructions word for word and worked with the same capacity equipment as we did.

    Any size tank can work, as long as you can be sure that the compressor is not overworked to fill it, or to re-fill it if you are using an air tool with a high CFM demand.
