RCABS - WTC connections to the bag?

Postby Slats » Sun Apr 12, 2009 6:17 am

Was wondering what connection you use btw the WTC end cap and the tube running to the bag? Size? Type? Etc?

Thanks

Why is it only a concept? Many people use it.

Was wondering therefore what people who generally use those rubber bags use to attach the rubber hose from the bag to the WTC end cap?

John,
If I understand you correctly, I am using a simple copper tube section with the wtc cap about the halfway point. Tube simply slides over it, inside and outside.
Thats it. Simple. Not complicated. No secrets. Straightforward as heck.

I use whatever size brass tubing fits snugly into the bladder hose. The bladder hose size usually varies according to the brand. The brass tube is cemented with CA into a hole made through the end cap. Friction fit of the bladder hose on the brass tubing, without clamps, is sufficient. I usually use airplane silicone fuel line to make connections inside the watertight compartment, to save space.

Yeppers on that, but I do use tee's on occasion....

since I am using a single hose bladder on one application, I do have a nylon automotive vaccuum tee in that setup. Aquarium/Fish tank tee's are also good to use if a tee is needed. I keep both on hand in case needed.

RCABS is an acronym for the Recirculating Compressed Air Ballast System.
For details, see my site, http://artbrodersmodels.multiply.com/ and scroll down to Links, then choose any RCABS link.

I use 1/8" brass tubing with DuBro barbs soldered on the end to prevent the tube from coming off.
