Thread-topic: [CRTech] Line Pressure

I was taught by my mentor to use 3 PSI, enough to keep moisture out without stressing seals too much (and pressure windows, in the case of waveguide).

The side jobs I care for have either dehydrators or nitrogen tanks. If the owner had money to buy a dehydrator at build time, it got one. That all happened before I came into the picture.

Hey Guys:

I'm curious to know how much pressure you put into your transmission line and how you arrived at that number. I want to compare that to what we set ours to.

How many pounds of pressure do you set your line pressure to?

Also, what do you use?  Do you use a nitrogen tank, dehydrator, or some form of air compressor with desiccant at the output.   And why? 

I find it disappointing that Phartronics may be out of business.  As much as Willie loves the name of the company, they made a good product that we have used at most of our transmission sites.

Have a great and quiet Thanksgiving!
