The pure energy co2 tanks are equipped with the repeater pin valve which is the most durable pin valve in the industry. The repeater pin valve boasts a recessed valve which connects easily and conveniently and is manufactured in brass with the most durable brass fittings.


That all I could find

So basically it replaces something that was fine and didn't need to be replaced with something else that was fine and didn't need to be replaced.

Allright so back in the days pin valve weren't that good and crossfire made pin valve with ''repeater'' on it and they always worked. So empire use ''new old stock'' as they haven't ordered in years from crossfire.

That was taken from a crossfire rep on pbn

My understanding was that nearly every "normal" CO2 pin valve could be referred to as a "repeater" valve. The term started popping up because a clerk or copywriter for one of the online stores only familiar with HPA regulators was assigned to write a description for some CO2 tanks.

Repeater is a brand name. Top of the line pin valve. Back in the day there were many tanks which had Schrader valves. (Like on a tire valve stem)
The pins on the Schraders would frequently bend, and not allow the vave to close when the tank us unscrewed, dumping the contents and/or becoming a CO2 powered rocket.
Schrader valves also weren't too friendly to adjustable pin ASA's as the pin would enter the hex recess and fail to open.
(Get a repeater-they're better)

I know all about those Schrader valves crapping out... Had a Dye Throttle tank and the valve gave out with a full tank and gave me wind shear on half of my fingers. Worst thing ever.

Used to work there - this is correct.

One of the best valves on the market - simple - easy to tech - and rarely breaks.

hopefully these have replaced the pure energy valves, every single 4 oz I ordered failed after the first fill. I had to stop carrying Pure Energy tanks.
