A 2gal tank should hold somewhere around .25 gallons-.5 gallons (depending on the pressure charged to). It'll fill up under one minute and you should use a pressure switch to do all the work for you...Hello fellow HP Aero geeks!!
I'm finally getting close to finishing my Flojet + Accum control module.
Unfortunately I am running into pressure and pump control issues that are confusing me and could use some advice.
Edit: Just found out that the Relief valve spring wasn't applying any pressure. (Wtf?) So I am going to get a small #10 bolt and thread it to adjust the relief pressure. We'll see how that goes...
Anyone know about how long it should take to fully charge a 2 gal accumulator?
My pump has a flow rate of 1.6gal/Min so I figure if pressure isn't achieved within ~1min, then the tank isn't full.
But a 2gal tank shouldn't have more than a 1.6gal drawdown, right?
This is really frustrating me. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
