Hmm... maybe you should have figured out how to use it before you bought it.

What kind of threads are those? If you know that, you can probably find a regulator for it.

You may want to work on your grammar and spelling because, as Pete Zaria commented in another thread, some of your posts are almost illegible.

I don't reall yunderstand our question very well. Do you want to use it as a chamber? Or do you want to pressurize your cannon with it?

BTW, those are just standard CGA 320 threads.

That looks like a little paintball tank, get one of these:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Purple-Tank-Adaptor-Bottomline-Duck-Bill-Standard_W0QQitemZ170143821296QQihZ007QQcategoryZ16051QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

It has 2 outlet ports and comes with a plug for one. Put some Teflon tape on the plug and screw it in one of the outlet ports and use the other for your expansion chamber. The outlet threads on the adapter are standard 1/8" pipe threads. For better efficacy without wasting Co2, put a metal ball valve before the expansion chamber to fill it and close off the tank supply when full. And another metal ball valve to fire.

i want to pressurize my chamber with the tank, i gess that i'll buy what Orpackrat says.. but i'll need to order that from eBay, i don't think that someone sell it here..

about the grammar.. i can talk really good English, but when it's start with words that i never use before.. it's hard :S

Update!

i called the soda-club factory and asked about the tank pressure.
the soda-club tank pressure is 250 bar and that's mean 3625 PSI ! 8)

over 3500 psi?
with co2?
I'm no expert, but I don't believe that is how much pressure is in that cylinder.

you cant have 250bar of co2 :D , pressure of full co2 cylinders is about 800 psi :wink:

It just means that the tank is rated for 3625 PSI so it is plenty safe enough to handle CO2. It could handle Nitrogen if he wanted to fill it with that then jut get a low pressure regulator for nitrogen.

Co2 remaims fairly constant at about 800PSI but the temperature does affect it. If its cold, the pressure drops, hot, it increases. Thats why there are 3000PSI burst disks on the larger tanks. They release the pressure before the tank explodes.

When it comes the tank size, a 12 gram and a 20oz will have about the same pressure (depending temperature), one just has more volume than the other not more pressure.

if you want to connect it straight to ur chamber and have no reg (disconnect it when it gets to the right pressure.. risky but ive done it before) then this is what you want with a 1/8 remote or 1/8 steel braided hose and a 1/8 to 1/4 brass bushing.

http://www.palmer-pursuit.com/cart/inde ... cts_id=228


if you want to put it on a reg and then hook it up so you can make shot after shot cause the reg keeps the pressure constant then this is what you want. (with a remote and few other things)

http://www.palmer-pursuit.com/cart/inde ... cts_id=175

(thats the reg i have)


"" also using co2 with pvc guns is great it makes your guns extremly portable but if you dont watch the temperature it will freeze the pvc and when it gets pressurized itll cause your chamber to shatter in a violent way.""
which is why i use hpa. the co2 is mainly a backup and for my paint ball guns.

and sense you asked me in a pm heres my setup.

pretty simple all the pics should be self explanatory but if you have a question about something feel free to ask.

it goes like this. the hpa tank to the palmer regulator to the remote line to the 1/8 inch ball valve to the 1/8 inch quick connect female to the 1/8 inch quick connect male to a 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch bushing to a 1/4 inch female quick connect.

wow man O_O this is really good job...

few questions

how much PSI the rubber pipe can stand?
and why you didn't connect the tank direct to the chamber?

i toughed about build a iron gun, and connect the the tank direct to the chamber, do you think it'll be possible? how?

thank's about the response!

Rubber pipe? Do you mean the remote line? Typically you have a working pressure up to 3000psi.

The reason the tank is not connected directly to the tank is that the high pressure air has to go through the regulator which turns the pressure down. If it was connected directly to the PVC chamber, it would be like holding a live grenade to your chest.

It is possible to connect a paintball tank directly to your chamber but it would need to be made with metal ball valves and galvanized pipe

why galvanized pipe and not just an iron?
if my chamber will be iron pipe and i'll have a blowgun connect to the chamber, it will be fine no?
