CO2 Tire Inflater

Unread postAuthor: The_Kangsta » Fri Jul 18, 2008 9:33 pm

Hello

I am planning a simple pill bottle cloud for .117 bbs, and i was wondering if any of you have any experience working with a co2 tire inflater as a power source, or if you can tell me if it would be not sufficient to fire the bbs powerfully.

No, I haven't used it before, but Yes, it would work.

I'v used this kind of inflator before. The inflator, if held down until it is depleated (approx. 6-8 secs), will get your bottle terribly cold and most probably will make it burst into hundreds of plastic shards.

Dont do that.

Instead, fill a metal secondary chamber (maleable iron or something stronger) with the unregulated c02 and connect that chamber to your pill bottle with a pressure washer handle or a ball valve. Make sure all your parts before the BV (and including the BV) are rated at 500+ psi.
This way you will get a more reasonable pressure into your cloud chamber AND get more shots with your c02 cardrigde.

Leonard I think there is no way to make a chamber with say 500 psi of C02 release over 8 seconds, I'd say even if the valve was only open a bit it would be out in 3 or 4 maximum. Why not alter the plastic body?

Its not worth it for a SIMPLE PILL BOTTLE CLOUD.
