what do you mean??? are you talking about a manual set-up or a fast valve (electric) set-up???

well to answer your questions a manual set-up uses "air toggels" the flow of air is controlled somewhat, depending on how you push and hold your switch.
a fast valve set-up uses 3 posetion toggels just like hydraulics, the flow of air is "all or nothing" just like juice. the flow cannot be controlled unless you put a regulator on your tank, or get nitrogen. ask 216rider.
hope this helped. i still say do it right and get juice!!! :biggrin:

air is like hydroz vice versa, basically when you hit a switch lets say up it opens a valve which pressurized air goes into a bag or air cylinder and when you hit the switch the other way it releases the pressurized air out of the bag which makes it go down where as in a juic setup the fluid is not pressurized until you hit the switch up where the pump does its magic and pressurizes and shoot the juice into the cylinder and then the dump sends back the juice back into the resovoir tank, if I am wrong shoot me but thats the best way for me to explain it

im anal about the fact that pumps dont create pressure, they create flow...

pressure is resistance to flow..
