  • Low Pressure Blowers S.A.S. System

    I started work on an experimental (to me) WTC that will have a single Vent/Blow ballast tank. I’m looking at using two of the micro air pumps Bob has available on his website.

    My question is, when running two pumps, should each be plumbed separately or can I manifold together their intakes and outlets in parallel? Thanks!

    Plumb them in series (more pressure) or parallel (more CFM's). The analogy to Ohm's-law is almost perfect.

        Is this going into your hybrid ballast system or a totally different system altogether?

          This is for the hybrid ballast experiment.
