The standard tank for all HornBlaster's 5-gallon kits, the 5-Gallon Black 8 Port Air Tank is perfect for any onboard air applications such as adjusting tire pressure, load leveling, supporting a Jake Brake and so much more!
Made in the USA with the highest level of quality control, this 5-gallon tank meets all SAE J10 & FMVSS 121 specifications. This durable tank meets all DOT requirements. The seven 1/2" ports and one 3/4" port provide maximum airflow, which is great at preventing bottleneck issues found in other tanks. The high flow ports make any onboard air applications work more effectively and are mandatory for the massive locomotive train horns that demand a lot of air, such as the Nathan AirChime or Leslie train horns.
The ports are positioned for convenience and ease of installation with 4 ports across the side, 1 on each end, 1 on top, and then 1 on the bottom. This makes it very easy to install a drain cock and safety blow-off valve even if you mount the tank upside down or sideways. This tank is powder-coated black and the inside is coated with a rust inhibitor to help protect your investment. Simply put, this is one of the highest quality 5-gallon tanks you can buy.
As an important safety precaution, a Safety Blowoff Valve should be installed with any air system. A Safety Blowoff Valve is designed to keep the system from over-pressurizing and to prevent damage to other components. It is suggested to use a Safety Blowoff Valve with a PSI rating between 25-35 PSI higher than the maximum pressure of the pressure switch. For example, 150 PSI systems require a 175 PSI Safety Blowoff and 120 PSI systems require a 150 PSI Safety Blowoff.
