My recent purchse.

Unread postAuthor: wyz2285 » Tue May 19, 2015 3:45 am

Sup guys.
After 4 years of loyal service, my fridge compressor can finally rest :D
Now I'm able to fill paintball tanks at home, with this new compressor that I got for about 140EUR.
Water cooled, two stage with max output pressure of 300bar. Fills a 0.8 aluminum tank up to 3000 PSI in about 15 minutes or less.
Bloody impressive pump for 1/4 of the price of a shoebox compressor and way faster. The noise is the same as a shop compressor, very reasonable. The construction is very steady, I don't see any part that worries me. I might change the water pump that came with it to a stronger one and add a cooling coil and fan though.The water cooled cylinder has a temperature reader incorporated to monitoring the temperature which is handy when filling big tanks. A bag of replacement o-ring and sealing material also came with it.

Looks good!

Although I do have to ask the obligatory question of "Where did you get this?", seeing as Shoebox compressors are so expensive.

Got it from alibaba, you have to source out the shipping though I guess. The package weight around 15kg. You can also find dual cylinder ones that fills even faster or air cooled ones.

Dunno why I can't find the right search term I used when I first searched for it on Alibaba (I know they do international shipping).
here is the particular pump I bought (looks like the same seller I found on Alibaba too, dunno if they would source out international shipping for you though).
here is rest of the pump they have available, as you can see I picked the cheapest and lightest one :P
