i got free on board air!!!!!

check this out!! i had an old nitrous bottle laying around that needs an inspection. i don't have a full keg in the kegerator so i decided to see what i could figure out. i took the reg. out of the kegerator and i had an extra set of nos bottle brackets and an extra air hose. all i need to do know is get the tank inspected and filled.

Re: i got free on board air!!!!!

So thats an NOS bottle ?
How much does it hold ?
What did the Reg. come off of ?
I work for a major soda dist. and is trying to score an old CO2 bottle.Of course I'll have to buy reg. and all that stuff. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Re: i got free on board air!!!!!

yes it is a nitrous bottle but it is the same as any 10# aluminum bottle. the regulator will only go up to 60 psi so i will be getting another one soon that will go to 150 psi. the bottle will hold 1500 psi safely but the pop off valve is supposed to pop at 3000 psi. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] let me know if you have any more questions. those power tanks are high!!!!

this is a good place to get a cheap one. get the 150 male. or you can look for c02 regulators for soda dispensers and kegerators and such. the one on the link a gave you is only 40 bucks but it is set at a predetermined rate. i was going to get one that was set for 150 psi. i figure that would be good for air tools and popping beads back on. i have heard people fill 35"tires from like 5 to 25 psi about 10 times on one 10# bottle.

Re: i got free on board air!!!!!

air tools need 90psi I believe, much higher and you'll blow o-rings. I gave an adjustable one since I thought I would be using air tools but I'm now probably going to get a preset valve at a higher psi. Cleaner install and faster to fill tires.

Re: i got free on board air!!!!!

i regulate my compressor at my house at 145 psi. most shops are around 150 so i am not worried about blowing seals on my air tools. i like the extra torque with the more pressure too.

Re: i got free on board air!!!!!

I run my air pressure at 185.

Air tools are worthless to me at 90 psi. At 120, I wait for the compressor to fill up again.
