Adhesives and Fasteners. There are sometimes good reasons for connecting two air compressors. A single air compressor may not offer enough flow to supply a higher demand air tool. Most smaller air compressors come equipped with a coupler into which an air line is plugged, Air then flows down the line to the air tool.
With two units, and a simple valve arrangement, you can switch between the two, and keep your volume and pressure up, AND reduce the duty cycle time on both units. Connecting 2 compressors to get combined pressure and volume. by Yasser ( INDIA). In order to achieve the desired pressure and volume for our pneumatic. Originally Posted by jomobco.
Will I actually approach 17cfm with this combination? This set up would be parallel, right, with the two tanks into one? valves on the outlet of the two compressors and use short hoses to connect. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password?
Take a care not to install it backwards! Question I heard a story about connecting two small compressors together in order to increase PSI. Maybe it will be helpful in certain spraying. Joined: Sep 7, Location: atlanta.
You will only double your air supply. Combining two air compressors General Garage Discussion. Powerful 5 HP engine provides up to 10, hours of extended life .. Close the valve, connect the two compressors (with the valve closed there is no leakage). The check valves should be installed in the line from each compressor, before the lines connect at the Tee.
In the home setting you don't need to worry much about cycling them both equally. How do I hook up two compressors (V) without blowing a hose or something. Is it just a matter of 'T'ing them together and let each pressure. This only happens when running the compressors together, but is fine when run by itself.
Bill Connecting 2 compressors to get combined pressure and volume. I have 2 IR 60 Gallon compressors, each rated somewhere around CFM I can work alot longer with the 2 hooked up, than with just one. We used 4 stage compressors on the boats for the PSI air system.
Difficult to do, Zach, as air lines on different compressor makes and models are different sizes.
