Q on Pneumatic Storage

Do you need to use both ports on a pneumatic air storage tank?

The pneumatics manual (link below, p. 18 & 19) shows both ports on the air storage tank being used – high pressure air goes in one and and comes out the other. But, it seems like it would also function only using one port (connected with a T-connection to the high-pressure side) and plugging the other port.

I’m trying to work out the pros and cons of each method, and the all revolve around the placement of the tank. Is the something else I’m missing?

No you do not have to use both ends of the tank, you can put a plug in one end
