Can I Use Two Co2 Jets On One Co2 Hose - CryoFX
Can I Use Two CO2 Jets on One Hose?
That's a great question, and the answer in short is Yes! You can use two co2 jets on one hose. That is often called a Y, or T, or a splitter. However, we want to make sure that you understand the steps if you're going to be doing that. If you have a hose that comes in, and then this co2 jet on your right (my left) is only five feet away, but this other one on the opposite side is 20 feet away. This one is going to pull more CO2. Hence, the majority of co2 is going to go out there. The reason being it's the path of least resistance.
How Does it Work?
As an illustration, think of a garden hose with water. You're not going to be using water here, but think of it like that. The liquid wants to go in the least lengthy direction possible I guess, to put this in the super layman's terms. Essentially, co2 does the same thing. Thus, when you're designing a system, or when you want to hook up multiple CO2 jets on your hose, we always advise that you have the same length of hose on each side. Even if one of the hoses is coiled up, just a little bit. That way, you get the same even stream across them. However, if you're really not picky about it, then do whatever you want.
Final Thoughts - Two CO2 Jets on One Hose
In short, you can hook up two jets or three jets or four jets on the same hose. But when you get to three or four jets, we have seen a diminishing effect in the output of co2 when they are off of one hose. Three is normally the sweet spot. When you get to four, especially five, six, seven, or eight, you do see a reduction in total output. This is because you're splitting the stream across multiple jets. I just want to make sure you understand the concept there. This is CryoFX. Thanks for watching/reading.
