Propane Tank Reserve

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Tue Jun 13, 2006 11:00 pm

My friend's dad is going to give me his emtpy propane tank so I can have a prtable air source for when I make a pneumatic gun. I was wondering how much pressure they can hold with just air. I also need to know if a regulator for it will be easy to find.

well propane liquifies at 97 psi but they could probably go as high as any compressor will go

Ok thanks, so there's really no way for me to over-pressurize with a standard compressor. If I keep my chamber relatively small I could get at leats 3 shots.

if the propane tank's threads are backward then a oxygen tank (one for a berns-o-matic torch) will work because they are designed so (stupid people) cant screw them in to a regular tourch head

What the hell are you guys talking about? Disposable oxygen tanks are reverse-threaded. Propane is standard.

This propane tank of yours can hold 125 psi from a compressor just fine. Any attachments you need can be found in the grill section and/or the plumbing section of a hardware store.
