Rapid inflation deflation system

Post by vanhack » 04 Feb 2017 19:30

Hi folks. Since i am lazy to deflate, i get stuck in the sand here. So been working on getting the process of deflation and then inflation easier and quicker.

1st step i hardwired my compressor. 2nd step copied a system from wildboar of usa called 2 way air.

Inflation from stopping the car to driving off is 10 minute

I have thought about it alot. The highest output compressor under pressure is the arb twin piston around R8000.

The problem aswell is that personally I deflate them to equal preaures but I reinflate the rear a bit more than the front most of the time. If one could add an adjustable off switch that you can set the preasure and it will inlfate accordingly or release preasure if needed. But haven't come across a system like that yet.
I would love something like that because laziness can get you stuck or shred your tires.

I have a pressure relief valve calibrated at 35psi. If you need to add more, shut the valve off to the pressure relief valve and the tires you want higher. Each tire point has a manual ball valve too to control flow.

GOOD DAY GENTS .

I see you guys are talking about inflating and deflating tyres for different terrain types . On my Safari , I have a central tyre inflation system , where I can inflate or deflate the tyres while traveling . The system uses swivels on the hubs of each wheel , with each wheel having it's own gauge , inflation , and deflation valve in the cab . Each wheel can be inflated to its own individual pressure . With a puncture you can set the valve for that wheel to slowly inflate continiously to maintain the pressure . you can also instantly see if one wheel is not up to pressure . My system is manual at the moment . I am working on an idea to be able to have perhaps three seperate pressure settings for ; OFF ROAD ; ON ROAD ; and FULL LOAD (for pick-ups) . In my cab , I have five gauges (4 tyres and 1 air tank) with four inflate and four deflate valves on the dash . My system works wonders for me , as I do a lot of rough dirt road and tar in the same trips . After about ten years my swivels are shot , so I'm working on a new type of swivel which would be more bush and off road resistant . The down side is waiting for the rest of the convoy to inflate or deflate their tyres .
Can we get rid of STUPID DRIVERS before they kill us ?
