Filling air from a pressure washer

Unread postAuthor: hkrivell » Sat Apr 19, 2008 4:44 pm

I just purchased a 2000psi power washer. Is it also capable of filling air tanks, if so, how can I do it safely?

if you can find a way to do it, just fill up air paint ball tanks, you wont have to worry about meters because they are easily rated to 2000 psi, and the power washer can't fill anything past that because of the laws of equilibrium.

cudos if you can figure out a way but chances are, there isn't a way...

I'm not sure on the threads of your power washer, but you would need a fill station. Check paintball sites and find an HPA fill station.

im pretty sure the water going through the pump in the pressure washer lubricates it. It would probably burn up if you tried to fill a tank to 2000 psi with just air. you could try to make a high pressure pump powered by a hydraulic cylinder which could be filled with the pressure washer. I dont really know, just throwing out some ideas.

Most of them have an auto shut off if you try to overwork it (consumer grade) but I don't you could use it to fill an air tank. good luck
