Hi There Everyone,
I want to have access underwater to my boat, i only really need to go down a few meters and for no more than an hour.
I'm about to start building a dive hookah to play with, i have a 12 volt 2 cylinder ceramic piston oil
free pump that puts out 85 liters a minute and works up to 150 psi.
I have also found a good deal on the regulator
, hose, belts etc.
I can buy a nice 40 micron air filter / water
trap and make a good stainless charcol filter and air reserve tank, that's all easy, but!
As the pump works at up to 150 psi and the regulator
is around 60 psi, what happens with the extra pressure?
i was thinking of installing a compressor
pressure switch if needed but i'm not sure if the regulator would just free flow the extra pressure or just die in the attempt?
Ideally it would be nice to have the system reach the required pressure then turn off the pump until the pressure drops enough then restart the pump as then the pumps get some down time to cool off and i save on wasting power.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
