Re: WK2 External Air Access?
We're drifting away from the situation in context now... this needs to be read from the start.
Regarding the accidentally depleted tank, obviously there was still nitrogen in the bags and lines. Say the tank was emptied at Normal Ride Height, there's still an amount of pressurised nitrogen left at xPsi. The tank, I assume, will be at atmosphere (with oxygen) until the control blocks are actuated... and then the two equalise. Now there is a mix of nitrogen and oxygen at xPsi, which will obviously be lower than the what was in the lines beforehand.
- So will the system still run like this? Sounds like it.
- Is it that the compressor must simply run for longer to make adjustments, or not? What are you observing in this regard dikpens?
- How is dikpens system still doing its job? Did it draw in air, or is it just functioning with a lower charge of mixed gases?
I'm really interested to understand. If my system ever fails, I would put money on it being in the middle of nowhere, with no mobile (cell) coverage. I'd like the knowledge to have the best chance of McGuyvering it back to some form of operation.
