EK Dual Parallel

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just wondering why there are 5 holes? Theres 2 on the top and bottom and then one on the side. Why is that? Am I supposed to just use 1 for inlet and 1 for outlet and plug the others?
post #2 of 10
exactly. The other holes are just there as options

I assume you mean the sli bridge? Just make sure you connect the inlet and outlet to diffiferent columns. So you use 1 of the left top or bottom and one of the right top, bottom or side.

Inlet through the side, outlet on the top, plug other holes and you're good to go.

(or inlet bottom...really depends on how your tubing is set up)

Can you elaborate more on the "columns" you speak of Nordar?

You mean like:

o = Inlet/Outlet

DIAGRAM 1)

_o_____




______o_

DIAGRAM 2)

_o___o_




________

I have it set up like this:



Inlet bottom right...outlet top left.

Is that the 3 slot? It looks extra long and has an extra screw on the sides where mine don't.
post #8 of 10
That's the 3 slot. You just plug up whatever holes you don't plan to use. Rather simple design.

Here's EK's illustration on how their parallel and seriel (series) bridges work:

I made this scetch of the dual parallel SLI bridge (oh what paint skills ):





Use one A and one B when installing tubing and plug the 3 remaining holes. Does not matter which is inlet and which is outlet as long as you DO NOT use two A or two B. By column (by lack of a better word) I mean the two main tubes inside the bridge.

If you think about it what is going on inside the bridge? Assume A is inlet and B is outlet. Then the A tube will fill with water. Then water will go equally divided into the two holes in the A tube. From there the water will run through the blocks and exit the holes in the B tube. From the B tube the water will exit the bridge and continue its travel through your loop.

Why won't the water just go through one of the cards you ask? Its because once more water starts to flow through one card the resistance through that card will rise. As was water will take the path of least resistance water will flow to the second card. This will balance once the same amount of water runs through each card.
