Is standard air line hose suffice with CO2?

Unread postAuthor: Team PSU » Wed Apr 15, 2009 11:29 am

For my project, I have a 20oz. CO2 canister with a Palmer Pursuit Stabilizer. I am running standard 3/8" ID Spray Hose (airline) into a hose barb on the end of my cannon. My question is, is this hose strong/durable enough to handle the coldness of the CO2 running through it? I will be shooting probably 10-12 tennis balls per minute. I am concerned about the hose splitting because of the coldness.

Is this something to worry about or should I upgrade to some stainless remote lines like off paintball setups?

I, personally, wouldn't trust the spray hose for use with CO2, even with a Palmer's Stab. I'd go with either some macro/micro line or a steel braided hose. There will be no question if these cannot handle CO2, as that is what they are designed to do.
