I have an idea that should work well for this application.

Install a check valve on the outlet of both tanks and then "T" the two
lines together.  This would not allow the air from one compressor to effect
the other.  Then adjust one unit to cut in at a lower pressure. This would
allow both compressors to supply air equally until the air pressure drops .
Then the one set highest would cut in first. The compressor set lower
would only cut in if  the pressure dropped low enough.  The second
compressor would only be used when the air volume usage is high. This would
give you a primary and secondary unit. The primary one would be used most
of the time and the secondary only as required.
