Pneumatic questions

Unread postAuthor: us sniper » Sat Apr 14, 2007 11:47 pm

Does anyone now if the quick connects leak. If they do how can you stop the leaking. Also, I seen it before but I couldn't find it. Does anyone know how to get the paintball threads to 1/4 or 1/2 while still being able to use the air tank.

if you want to use a quick release on a paint ball tank i can tell you that it cant hold the 1000+ psi. i think they are make only for compressors, so it would be safe up to around 200 psi or so. they were not designed for a whole lot of pressure.

Is there anyway to get a stronger quick connect that can hold around 500 psi?

I have had some quick connect fittings that leak. I have found that the best ones have "RECTUS" written on the side and they are made in Germany and the most I have ever taken them to is bout 300psi. Some of the cheap silver ones I have used will often leak and they get stuck together.

Hope that helps.

Will quick-connects leak? Yes, yes they will, if there really cheap and old. I’ve got one on my air compressor that leaks real bad, but only if it’s hooked up to something, you chuck a blowgun, Schrader fill, cannon, etc. in it and it starts to leak around the outside of the male. But that’s the only one I’ve seen do the, it’s probably got MADE IN CHINE stamped on it some were…
As for your second question, start looking for an old paintball gun, or buy one at the China-mart for 80 bucks, take off the part that the Co2 screws into and there you go, bulk tank to quarter to eighth inch adapter.

Are you talking about removing the beavertail, judgement_arms? You can purchase those online for ~$10. You can also buy a paintball remote, which will have the ASA adapter, the hose, and a 1/8NPT fitting on the other end for the male ASA adapter. Those run ~$25.
Although, it would be a good idea not to run a gun on unregulated CO2. The gas comes out extremely cold, and at ~800PSI+ (until it gets really cold, and then it drops to <350PSI. Of course, if you are only running it a short time, its ok.

A palmer Regulator can bought for $80 for safety. It will bring down the PSI to whatever you want.

Also allot of Paintball fields near me are moving away from CO2 and more towards compressed air  Safer and no cold issues.

I live in Miami ow its never been a problem here. But when I did live in NY CO2 was very inconsistent. Especially for winter games in PA.

But I was thinking Compressed Air becuase its easier to find here and because the tanks hold more air.

I'd have thought that CO2 tanks would hold a larger volume of gas. And CO2 is available EVERYWHERE! They use it for all kinds of stuff. But I guess if you live in Miami and people scuba dive...
