Co2 power system.

Unread postAuthor: _-J-O-R-D-A-N-_ » Tue Jan 11, 2011 10:55 am

Back in around 2007, an Australian company called Ozito released a new item that would have solved many of my current issues that I have when it comes to the portability of BB machine guns.

The product unfortunately has been cancelled since early 2009. I have heard of one other similar product, a Canadian brand called Jac Pac.
Unfortunately however, I have not come across a similar product anywhere else in Australia.

I currently own an Ozito tank, which is actually the exact same as a paintball tank. I just have no idea of where I may be able to find a regulator that would be suitable for it.

I am also very wary of the dangers of the incredibly high pressures of these co2 tanks, so there would be no way I would ever construct such a design unless I were using factory fittings and I had a good idea of the pressure that the components would have to be under, and whether or not they could withstand it.

I'm basically just wondering if anyone around here may own a paintball tank, and if they have some knowledge as to what I could use that would be compatible with general air compressor fittings and accessories.

Thankyou.

Check with your local welding supply house. The regulators for CO2 for the beverage industry and fire extinguisher recharging will turn up regulators that can properly handle the inlet pressure and regulate down to the 50-100 PSI range. The supplier might be able to identify the fitting on the bottle and provide refill services as well as the adapter to fit the regulator you would use.

General air compressor fittings are most often 1/4 inch pipe thread. The outlet of many regulators is 1/4 inch pipe thread.

$150 dollars seems pretty steep for a Co2 regulator. In America they sell those under a different name for as low as $40. Even with shipping it may be cheaper to buy the American version, try searching for kobolt regulators or look at the harbor freight site for one.
