Reduced air consumption cannons

Found this on the web, please excuse if this has been discussed before. I am using a large air cylinder to refill my chamber. I could save lots of air and fill time if I could use this technology cheaply. Any ideas on how to build one?

Basically what says there is a faster opening valve performs better :roll: (solenoid valve vs piston valve), just as a 1/2 QEV has better performance than a 3/4 sprinkler valve (same pressure same chamber volume same projectile same barrel). So less air and pressure is required for a same result.
