Question ARB compressor & outlets (?)

While I wait for my toolbox to be made I started gathering the 2 pieces I want to house in,
the ARB compressor and MB air reservoir.

I noticed my ARB comp. has only 2 holes instead of the 3 I can see on some adverts/catalogues.
Should I fit a couple of ARB lockers in one day
(yum) I was told I'd need a T-outlet to run 2Xairlines
(the other one has the pressure switch fitted already).

So I sketched something to have the right vision of "how to do"


Does it look right or did I miss/mess something?


TIA

Michele, that looks good other then a pressure relive valve that you may also want to T in at the tank. Check out

for more ideas. Good to see they are finally all going in

Mike,
thanks for the reply,I was getting a bit depressed here alone...

Yup,slowly slowly every piece is going in place (on paper,at least...ah!),
I'm just double-checking everything to be sure it'll fit right.

Ehm...which tank?
The ARB one or the auxiliary one?


(I suppose you meant the first)



...yeah,T-outlet...2Xairlines to whatzgonnabe...one more for tires...and MB tank...4?!??

If everything is tied together then 1 relief valve is good for the system but it is recommend to be on the tank itself. I'm not sure but I would imagine that the ARB tank would have one built in? They are cheap and a good for safety, so I just put one on my 2.5 gallon tank.

What do you mean on the last part? And when you want to sound more complex you don't say look at this mess of T's you say this is my "manifold"

OK I think we are both confused. ARB compressor with tank, then you T off to the secondary tank. On the secondary tank put a relief/check valve. 2 Ts one for each ARB then another T for tires. Or they do make manifolds for Air compressors with 4 or 5 outputs.

I think there is some kind of language barrier, I google could not figure out whatzgonnabe

Talking

Ok,here's my serious reply (mind my sketch is exactly what I have now on the floor,so 2 outputs-ok?- only the 2nd with pressure valve already fitted)

In a desperate try to make it clear but adding confusion instead

So I take the single (stock,for inflating job) outlet off an fit a "T" (2X) instead to both the reservoir & inflating device.

Another one to go (with pr. valve);I remove the valve and fit another "T" to run-let's say-2Xairlines (lockers)...
...
...
...now...
...the pressure valve is left on the floor!


I'm probably missing something...

Erm,that's was me in a hurry,sorry
(DOH!)

I meant "what is going to be",as I have no idea of what to put there.

1) I would suggest the line to the ARB solenoids comes off the tank. This allows the tank to catch most of the water.

2) Add a drain valve to the tank.

3) Add a regulator/filter between the tank and the solenoids to keep the lines into the diffs and solenoids as clean as possible and to make sure the pressure never goes two high for the lockers.

I'm back...Mike,thanks for the new diagram,which puts my Flash art to a shame

and glad to find John here as well...nice points (1,2,3),I took note and I'll try to sort everything out.
The regulator sounds like the most complicated...I'll find a shop and ask for some bits.

Thanks so far guys.


(the end is near...or not?!?)
