    When using all of a concentrator's flow, the psi takes a hit, so your 9psi concentrator might only maintain a pressure of 2psi when you're raging your torch. If you add another concentrator so that you're not maxing out the flow, it keeps the psi from taking that hit (or at least keeps it from taking the full hit), and increases the effective psi. It's not that you get 18psi out of 2 9psi machines, but that having 2 makes it to where you might actually get 9psi out of them because you're not using their flow fully.

    I've paired concentrators with differing psi's before. What happens is the concentrator with lower pressure doesn't even flow until the other concentrator is almost at max flow. I don't know if that's bad for the machines or not, but I do know that it gave the torch a much higher top-end than either machine alone would give.
    hooking up concentrators with different psi could result in backflow to the weakest one.

    Putting in checkvalves can prevent this from happening, but it doesn't really solve the underlying issue.

    These are all reasons why people use a booster to up the psi. whether it be homefill or oil-free compressor. There is a ton of info on here about this stuff, searching around will help.

    good luck.

    Yep, I've got my Gast compressor, just need another concentrator and some clean tanks.

    yeah im making sure all the psi are set at 9 so when i am raging the torch im getting as near to 9psi as i can that pressure is measured against a closed guage not a open torch, although when the oxy cons are running the torch being full boar doesnt really change how much the oxy cons are pumping out becuase when its off im leaving the oxy valve wide open so it can flow as much as its able to keep stress off machines. but yeah i got confused on what my goal is by linking the machines together rather i was leaving out common sense the fact that 2 machines are going 9 psi but linked together im still only gonna get 9psi, meeting with jay tomorrow to grab another 5lpm machine to link together to see how if operates outfire with them all chained togetherr. also going to test 1 on center 2 on outer try to test machines psi and purity levels at different settings that way i know what works best on my situation. ran torch for few hours today with oxy cons on center fire tanked outer and loved it. barely used any oxy atleast compared to running all tanked gonna just sip it once i get me a footpetal but thats if three machines wont power the torch to my needs. i have to take back what i said about the centerfire running at 100% off the 2 cons its probably more around 80% but it fits my needs especially when i have the tanked outer for the real heat when i need it.

ID:	72991 Really stoked on minitube no cracks this time at all while working got a solid method for doing them now cant wait to try some more in near future. had to get some pics with the matching pendant i made a while back blueberry tubing from goldengate. running tanked outerfire and oxy con center is really working for me and barely using any oxy. footpetals in the mail gonna be using even less and be more precise with my work.

    Connecting bridge to top of can rather than bottom way better shaping these are first 2 WITHOUT mini hand torch. Got foot pedals from @eranparkglass had to use my y from mini torch to hook up pedal. SOO worth it saving a ton on oxy, running centerfire off cons and tanked outer just sipping it with the foot pedal. foot pedal not only helps on oxy helps me be a lot more precise in working becuase i can go from heating an entire section fast with outer fire hit pedal go to centerfire and focus heat where i want it without having to touch torch, helps tremendously

    Some super heavy fume on these
