9oz compessed co2 tanks

Unread postAuthor: M3NT4L » Thu Aug 03, 2006 11:47 pm

I have pondered around this idea for some time, i want to use my 9oz paintball tank fr a high pressure multiple shot copper cannon, the only problem is that i dont have many ideas wuen it comezs to the valve. My plan is to regulate the pressure to a secondary storage tank up to about 120 psi then shut off the 9oz. but i dont have many good ideas about the valve for the secondary tank, sprinkler valve is out of the question, i thought a piston might work but other than that?????

So, the real question is something along the lines of "what valve should I use for my pneumatic?"

And really, put more effort into your f'ing posts.
It's sad when I have to ask what you are trying to ask, and it should be obvious that you don't get as good of responses when people don't even know what you are f'ing asking.

go with a piston or diaphragm valve, unless you can make a hammer valve. for a pilot valve you'll have to use a ball valve, at that pressure, a blowgun or anything else is out of the question

Why dose he need a regulator?

Could he not just use a ball valve and put a Pres. guage on the 2nd chamber then open the ball valve REALLY slowly letting only some CO2 into the chamber then closing it at the desiared pressure?

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

I bought a paintball co2 regulator on ebay for $35. The only problem with it is that its really unreliable but it does the job of keeping to pressure down from 60-120psi.
