Don’t forget your regulator will need to be capable of running at quite a high pressure to run multiple diffusers.
50 psi maybe?
Sorry M8 I completely disagree with you on that one the main pressure pre regulator is 1000psi for the main part of the cylinders life before refill is needed so the CO2 will have no trouble keeping to pressure at 20psi pre spliter even if supply six big tanks on high injection rates, the cylinder wont last long OFC. In fact the lower the working pressure of the reg the bigger the pressure difference so the CO2 will flow faster and maintain a lower working PSI easier IMO
I am not an engineer so forgive me if my science is wrong, I was coming from my own experience. Runnning 2 x inline diffusers from 1 regulator I found things were much more efficient at somewhere near 50psi. That is all.
I have considered it for myself at home and these were my considerations -
I assume you would want 4 or even 6 manifolds to run multiple tanks off one regulator and bottle. Consider the solenoids. Would you want all diffusers coming on at the same time?
Do you want CO2 tubing trailing from 1 tank to another?
How big is your CO2 bottle gonna be?
Also what happens when your timer fails or bottle runs out and you donot notice/haven’t got one/are on holiday, you have an issue in all tanks rather than just the one.
Personally I’d only want to use that many manifolds with a high end regulator, almost commercial grade. The ones I have used and would be confident in are GLA and Oxyturbo, maybe the higher end CO2 Art Elite one at a push also.
Hope that clarifies my thoughts
