This design was based off the U-shaped sprinkler vavle with a piston instead. Mind you, I haven't seen any of the pics/plans on or linked from this site until last night after creation. :( They would've helped me. Anyways, Its taken a few weeks and a lot of tinkering to get it to work.








How It Works...
Notice the two smaller valves. When an air supply is connected, both smaller vavle are in the close position. The first one is opened to pressureize the secondary chamber with the piston in it. After a few seconds the piston has completely sealed the primary chamber and then the second valve is opened allowing the primary chamber to be filled and allowing both promary and secondary chambers to be equalized. When filled to desired pressure both small vavles are closed and the large y-valve in the back is opened to the the ouside. Pressure is secondary instantly drops and immediately after the pressure in primary forces the piston backward and DUMPING ALL the air IMMEDIATELY forcing it out of the outlet.
I am currently going to try to build a much "cleaner" vavle, maybe a new internal design. Any questions, suggestions, comments?

From the get-go, I would say I have spent almost $200 in R&D. But this working one is under $100 :) 4"x4"x3" tee with 2" pipe going in. It can easily be done with 3" or 3.5" on the inlet..leter versions. I have not hooked it up to a barrel yet. I Will soon :)
