2 bottles vs one, pressure and heater question. Physics guys chime in too
Trying to figure out my nitrous setup. I bought a two bottle system but need accessories for it.
What i need to know is if the pressure flowing through the nitrous line to the Zex unit will be. Say i have both bottle connected (one to the other and then out to the Zex computer). If both bottles are sitting at 900 psi, will the nitrous line pressure also be 900 psi? Or is it, if im sitting at 450 in both tanks, will my nitrous pressure be 900.
Also, will i need just one pressure gauge. If the pressures are additive, will i need bottle heaters at all? Will i need a regulator?
Or will i just need to run one bottle at a time regardless?
If both bottles are open, their pressures will equalize (Say if you had one bottle @ 900 PSI, and another that was partially empty @ 600 PSI, both at the same temp and bottle size; when you open both bottles up, the 900 PSI bottle will actually push some N2O into the other bottle until the pressures equalize...the resulting pressure that will be at your solenoid will be 750PSI). You only need 1 pressure gauge. You should still get 2 bottle heaters to get to the correct pressure.
