Air tools running out of power? Static vs Working psi explained and the fix!

Hey friends of Shane from how to rent calm and tools 4 inch calm in today's episode, I'm going to talk about the difference between static pressure and working pressure, and this was really the best example that I've had to see what a difference that is when I, But we've got the vapor honing technologies machine about a year ago. I'Ve had no complaints, you guys are seeing numerous videos of me cleaning, carbs cleaning parts and everything I've done with this thing, there's some of those examples of those videos. If you haven't headed over the website yet or to the YouTube channel and became a subscriber missing out, my friends check out some of these examples. I'Ve used this machine for, and I've been thrilled with it, but most recently in the last year, we've gotten a new weekend warriors at the college and it just does a better job and it's all the same gut same internal system and I really started taking a Look at hey, what's going on, is there something wrong with mine and put a gauge up on the machine? You'Ll see how much air loss I had between static and working pressures. Mind-Blowing so I'll show that in the video here in a second, so I had to come up with solution and one of the solutions have a big two-stage. Air compressor, butts 140 feet away and it's 140 feet of this quarter inch line and that's really the problem, but this quarter inch line works for everything else. I do once in a while I'll run out of power from using a big half-inch impact, but usually not the case. I mean you guys are used to me making most of the videos out of the hot air intercom shop and the area that I'm in right now is unfinished here, but with all these airlines I got air drops, I got an air hose real. I got more air drops over there. I'Ve never run out of power, except, like I said once in a while when I'm using the half-inch, but here's a job. I just got pulling out the clutch, no issues, no problems. So realistically I wasn't gon na redo. 140 foot of air line all the fittings, all the t's, all because of one machine, so I thought there had to be a better idea so watching watch other videos on YouTube and talking to some people came up the idea. I had this old air compressor. I bought the building that was left behind you're gon na see in a second, I gutted it had this tank that thought man. This is awesome. I'M gon na use this for capacity and see how it works and check this out man. This thing is awesome. It'S not running out of air, its refilling fast enough, and it's great, you know, for all you do it yourselfers at home. You would typically in your shop, have your air compressor, this close to your machine or within the same room at least, and as long as you, you know like said, just keep that half-inch line right to it. You'Re not gon na have any problems with yours. So this was my solution. https://felixfurniture.com/best-steel-toe-shoes/ is what I came up with and check it out right now. I'M gon na show you how I went about doing that. So, as I get rid of the the stuff that I don't need for this build, one of the things I want you to see is why using too much teflon or too much pipe dope or whatnot can get you into trouble. You could see where there is a pretty big excess and that's inside there. So when reusing something like this, you really want to strip it down completely to blow any of this out, even though I'm gon na put a filter on the outlet side. I still just don't want to immediately push something into that, so you want to clean this out really good. Well, everything I'm gon na reuse, these three pieces, so I'm gon na use the gauge to pop off, because this is this tank is being filled remotely from a compressor, 150 foot away. I still want to have some safety protection that it couldn't overfill for whatever reason and be highly unlikely, but why air on the went out here on the safe side, you'll see, I got it gutted here and then head to the hardware store. There'S too many variations to really do a detailed list once you get everything stripped down. One thing you're gon na have to do from from underside. Here is put a half-inch, in my case, a half-inch plug into here. This is where the air compressor would actually fill the tank. We'Re gon na plug the middle fill it here because we're taking advantage of all those pieces and then we're going to use this as an outlet all right. We'Re gon na do a little test around the new configuration with the reservoir tank air tank there. So you could see the same quarter inch line coming in feeding the spare tank. I went ahead and put a shutoff valve case there. Any leaks. We'Ve got a about 115 coming in and then I plugged the cap you can see from underneath there and then here's my outlet. I went ahead and put another shutoff valve because I have it quick nice if there's ever a problem and then the regulator so just to have apples-to-apples to set this gage at the 105. Just like the last test and let's go ahead and see well, she works now see what kind of drop we have now they're saying 100 is the max, but we were having such a drop to get to that 25. That'S why it was over a hundred under operation. We only had 25 remember, let's see what happens now, only drops to around 97 or so with the new setup. So man that is awesome. This thing is going to be able to perform like it's supposed to now. The other great thing about this: I could crank that way down because they want they say you only need about 50 psi working pressure, so I'm go ahead here and just engage the pump. So a man, that's fantastic, alright check this out. I just put about Oh 45 seconds or so in each half. This half was with the 50 psi of working pressure and this half was with the 25. look at these guys of time. Obviously, you can see here what I was able to do and just like, I said, 30 30 seconds or so I think was 34 seconds. I actually took a photo of it. How I forgot to take it before pic of the wrench is beside me, so I'm gon na go ahead. Leave it at the 25 finish this and show you that it can be done, and then I'm gon na keep track of the time to see how long it would take to get this half to look like this, and why that working pressure is so important to Meet the manufacturers specification? Alright, let's do that now. Do you think it worked? Well here we are at almost 4 minutes and you can see this was the 50 working PSI pressure and this was the 25 and I got it really close teachers. I was just getting so damn bored knowing I could do this faster. I didn't want to sit there anymore. I mean think about that 34 seconds. 3 minutes 49 seconds I mean even just to get close so what an awesome example of having the working specifications from the tool manufacturer, so you can maximize that tools, use reduce your labor times and just get after it. You know the whole point of this video, like we said in the beginning, was going to be able, to. You know, show the difference between static psi and working psi. So hopefully, this is a good tutorial from how to rinse calm on the differences between static PSI and working PSI, and what you can do to make up for that when your air line is too small, like in the case of my shop, alright make it a Great day, as always subscribe like share visit us on the web sites, han wrench comm tools to rinse calm, make it a great day and keep rinsing [ Music ]
