Filling Thermo Valved Tanks?
 
I should probably know this but...

What's the best way to fill a Thermo valve these days?

Drop an oring into the fill-station.

I've filled hundreds that way.

Any specific size/type? I tried that and it didn't go so well.

If the pin depressor in the fill-station ASA is taller then the ORING, then you might needer either: 2 orings, or just find a bigger oring.

If, if the pin-depressor is adjustable, then just don't turn it in all the way.

If you see enough thermo-valve tanks, then its trivial to make an adapter that couples the Tippmann-style threads with the thermo style threads

i normally use some teflon tape, the o-ring trick doesn't always work, and for the number of thermos i normally have to do it works.
