found this on MCB:
IVT stands for Integrated Valve Technology

Paintball - JT Air Systems (http://jtsports.com/?ivt)


The tank features an internal magnetic float which represents your liquid CO2 fill level on the indicator strip. This allows you to know when you are running low so you don’t ever have to lose another game because you are out of gas and you will always know how much is left in your tank.

The patent pending IVT also eliminates accidental valve seperation, revolutionizing safety and reliability.

That tank is actually pretty cool. I mean, with the bonnet being able to come off without leaking all the CO2, that's great. Oh, and that fill reader is definitely great 'cause I know a bunch of people who keep getting their tanks filled when they've barely use a bit.

I like that, seems like it would be helpful, lol

I remember one game, it was a scenario game of take the castle...
Our Youth Group (13-15) people were attacking, and someone else's church group (25-30) people were defending... As we were about to make are big move on the castle, 6 people in our group all ran out of CO2 with in a 5 minute time period! lol

I can see how this tank could've prevented that!

They sell them all over the place too, we just got a whole shipment in at our local K-Mart about a week ago, they're about 30 or so bucks. Not bad, not bad. I might just get one, haha.

How can the valve be removed? One, in case hydrotesting is necessary and if there is a pin valve problem, how could you take it out to fixed/replaced? seems like youd have to replace the entire tank.

And, if my some miraculous happening, someone strips out the threads for the burst disk? you have to purchase a new tank instead of just replacing the pin valve!

costs as much as a compressed air tank :dodgy:

im pretty sure there is a second set of threads that holds the valve to the body.

and in pretty sure brass is weaker than tank aluminum, so i doubt the tank threads would strip before the burst disk threads.

Yes, but how does that come out? And i see its designed to have replaceable threads, but what when the lower oring goes bad? On most pin valve assemblies that can only be reached from the bottom of the valve.

I hate to be the debbie downer on it, but i like things that are "fixable" more than just "replaceable"

And your right about the burst disks, I was thinking of HPA reg burst disks which i have seen cross thread
