View Full Version : Did i get a good deal

02-27-2007, 06:05 PM
I picked up a big HPA bottle full and a big(50lbs i think) n2 bottle half full and a 47ci/3000psi tank for 125. Did i get a good deal i thought it was. since the little tanks usually go for about 60. Anyone know how to make a fill station. I am so glad i got these cant wait to use Hpa and i bunch of the guys i know work at a fire department that has a compressor that can fill the tanks and they wouldn't charge. Now all i need is a fill station. By the way anyone know how many fills i will get

Sounds like a damn good deal to me.

You'll need one of these (http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=m1-KsCkG3IWKKGziYGdKGCPS0zCvo_BM0xc=?ProductID=EhesFA Y7jiwAAAD42KvkrFs5) to fill from the scuba tanks.

If they are ratd to 50 Lbs they are both CO2. Post the numbers on the top. The rating your looking for will be like 1800......2200.......3000

there size is the equivalent to the 50lb co2 tanks. thats why i said 50lbs. They have compressed air and N2 labels

They can still be welding bottles which can be down to 2200. I recently looked at a couple 440 cu ft tanks that were labeled that way! If they are about 5 foot tall they are generally 440's. If it is a 4500 psi tank either one of them they are worth $500+ a piece!

scuba tanks are not compatible with fire truck compressor tanks, two different valve connections. I have a buddy in the fire dept and we already checked. _Don't know about welding tanks.

They are different connections.......but you can still make an adapter. It's the same type of valve as a Bulk CO2. Just need 4500 PSI line or 6K line if it is a 6K tank. You can also buy the screw on regulators for nitro for about $250. We even got the parts to fill our scubas off of out bulk fill tank when they start running low! We just spent $2200 on a Booster finally so we can suck our tanks dry though!
