Two Questions in one: tying two compressors together and using A/C condensor as a dryer

Bill

I have two Sandborn 60 gal upright air compressors that I would like to tie together so they come on at the same time when air is demanded and I would also like to run the air coming from the head of each compressor into a T then run that through a A/c condenser (for cooling of air) after the condenser T them off again and feed the air back into each compressor, I would place a check ball before the T coming from the heads, would this work or would I be fighting back feed

Thank You
Sheldon O

AC condenser as compressed air dryer

I presume you've read the sections on this site about connecting additional pumps and or receivers for added capacity?

Your scheme will work, although depending on the size of the tube in the a/c unit, you may have some reduction in output from what you might expect.
