ARB Locker ?

Can an ARB locker be safely actuated by co2 instead of air?
TIA

Re: ARB Locker ?

Absolutely, it just needs to be regulated to 80 - 100psi just like compressed air. I have heard the argument, that CO2 introduces moisture into the assembly, but it really shouldnt, since the solonoid is exhaust ported to outside the system.

Re: ARB Locker ?

Thanks for the info, I didn't find any information on the moisture issue at that link. Maybe I misunderstood why you posted the link. Did you post it for the Powertank information or moisture issue?
Anyway,
I am in the process of building and shortening a Waggie D44 and just got my ARB in the mail. I will use my co2 bottle from my MIG welder as a Power tank and will use the bottle for my locker as well.
Thanks again!

Re: ARB Locker ?

this was under FAQ's in powertank link


Can I run air lockers with a Power Tank?
Yes. It's quieter and quicker than a 12 volt compressor. There's no compressor noise. There's no waiting for the compressor to pressure up. Just run a hose down to the solenoid switch and set the regulator to the recommended pressure (70-105psi).

As a precaution you MUST run a pressure release valve between your Power Tank and the solenoid switch set to a maximum of 120 psi. Call us if you need one


yeah i just bought the 10lb powertank and it ROCKS for airing tires! when i get my MIG i can do the same and i don't think i will be going air lockers. probably powertrax up front.
