my dad has a huge nitrogen tank he uses out on oil fields that is at 4000 psi. However it is pure nitrogen. Can I fill my HPA tank with it?

Yup, you can. Pure N2 is actually "better" for your paintball gun, as it's cleaner.. You won't notice a performance difference, but it's theoretically better.

Only if you want your pops to kill you...That's akin to asking my dad if I can bleed off some of his acetylene. Pure N2 is expensive. From what I hear it's not an easy gas to obtain, but it is extremely stable.

Question superchargers

Does anyone know about super chargers for air systems? Cost? How they work? How you would connect it to your system? Are they worth it?

What exactly does "topping off" mean?


I understand that you use the first tank to fill the majority of you paintball gun tank, then you use your second scuba tank to "top off" your paintball gun tank. what exactly does that mean?

thanks

Well, you use your first tank to fill it up to... say... it fills it up to like 2300psi.

So you use your next tank in the cascade line to "top it off," to fill it up the rest of the way, like, from 2300 to 2600psi.

Then, you can use the third tank to top it off even more.

My dad has a pnuematic nail gun. One of those tanks that just suck in air i guess and then sends it through the hose to the nail gun. This got me on thinking if i could use this to fill hpa tanks even if its not that much at least enough for me to just shoot around the backyard or something.
If I could do this I'd have to get a fill station for it and since I have no experience with Hpa I'd have to get that first to. The thing was 200$ (US) so if anyone has experience with this or if its possible let me know
Thanks.

Not high enough pressure to fill tanks, roughly the highest those types of tanks go is 325psi, but very high flow, if you have a gun that runs on the same psi as the tank or lower than you might be able to set up a constant air system just for shooting in your yard, but your gun would have to Lp 300psi or lower(rated to the tank). and have the right connections for a hookup.

Tank Prices

Guys just so u know ur estimates for tank prices are off. $140 for a brand new alluminum 80. I dont think so. List price for scuba tanks is $100 new (roughly). Sport Chalet has them for that all the time and thats when there not on sale. So for that $80 for a used one $20 more and its brand new.

You guys speak of transporting the scuba tanks. I am looking to get some tanks and do my own fills, as the field I'm going to be working at this summer isn't going to do HPA fills (atleast not for this summer).

The only issue is that the scuba tanks may sit in a hot car all day. Is this ok? I know that it is a general rule to not leave anything under high pressures in a hot car. What is your view on this?

I know you also mentioned that you do fills all weekend when playing, I'm assuming this is with the tanks in the car?

Thanks for the info though, very very helpful

I have talked to one of my dive friends about tanks in the heat. he said that as long as ur using new tanks there should be no problem with the pressure increase that comes with the heat. although he told me it should be fine for ur area of new hampshire and new york. anywere else is another story.
