scott air tank

Unread postAuthor: sergeantspud2 » Mon Aug 15, 2005 11:55 pm

does anybody know where i can get some scott air tank fittings for the tank i just got. i tryed using npt fittings but they didn't fit. they are fireman tanks. i want to be able to fill my pnumatic guns witht them and the way i have it on now kind of scary. i only fill it with my compressor 130 psi (no leaks) so don't freak out that i am putting 2000 psi in that hose. and also does anybody know if they sell regulators for these?

Find a threaded female fitting that slides over it (not threading it, just sliding it over the top) and use high strength epoxy to fill the gap (the smaller the gap the stronger it will be) I'm fairly sure it will hold 130psi if you use enough epoxy. Make sure you wait 24 hours to let it set. Even 5 minute epoxy takes 16 hours to reach full strength. The glue should seep ino the threads and shouldn't come off. If you don't feel save with that, use hose clamps to attach it to the tank as well, so that if the epoxy fails, it will stay in place and not shoot off at you.

Just bring the tank into a hardware store. They will understand. Or, you can buy different valves for tanks. Maybe that would be the best option in the end.

Wow really old topic, almost forgot I ever posted it. :lol:

I have two of them and one of them I got hydro tested in march so I use it to fill my paintball air tanks. I found the SCBA fitting on ebay it came off an old scott breathing air regulator. And the other one Im just cutting it out for an upcomming spud gun (it was out of the hydro testing date) it will be sweet not sure if Ill make it a hybrid or combustion or pnumatic.
