Reservoir

Figure 16 shows that an additional air reservoir has been added. Since the first reservoir is closest to the compressor it is now called the supply reservoir. It is sometimes called the wet reservoir because most of the water and oil from the compressor gathers here.

The second reservoir is called the service reservoir. Air is drawn from this reservoir to operate the brakes.
