1 - 12 gallon tank and 2 viar 450 compressors


1 - 12 gallon...1 - 7 gallon tank... 2 viar 450 compressors


can u hook the tanks together or sumthin like that and have the 2 compressors fill up the 12 gallon tank and the 12 gallon tank fill up the 7 gallon tank and of course the 7 gallon tank send air to the bags...
does that make any since wat i jus typed up there... or should i jus say bump it and jus 1 12 and 2 compressors... i mean i got a full size truck and i dont wanna only go front up, back up twice and be out of air...

yeah run scuba like homeboy said i got 12 gollons of air but in 4 3 galloon tanks you can run your 12 to the 7 that will just make it 19 gallons of air and give compressers longer runtime

all i need is one pressure switch on the 12 gallon right(maybe 2 because of 2 compressors), willthe 7 gallons psi end up the same as the 12 gallons psi? or would the 7 have more psi putting more strain on the tank (dont want it to burst)...

p.s. why would u have 4-3 gallon tank instead of 2-6's or 1-12???

yes, i pressure switch, just use a solenoid, and have the PS turn on the solenoid..

yes, the pressures will be equal...

finally, for space savings, you can tuck the smaller ones in spaces the big ones wont fit...

Don't run 450s, they are rated for only 150 psi. Get 380s or 480s, they are rated at 200 psi. Four 380s will fill two 5 gallon tanks just fine. Or go with four 480s & two 7 gallon tanks, that will give a little more play time & the 480s won't run too long with the 7 gallon tanks. Just be sure your charging system can handle the 70 amp draw from the four 380 compressors or 80 amp draw from the four 480 compressors.
