ProFill M10 fill station
Hi guys (I own a paintball field but do not know much about paintball, it is a long story that i wont bore you with) anyway all my makers run off Co2 and i use the Profill M10 to fill my bottles.
my problem is that after a few games when the big Co2 bottle has been used a bit i can not get the pressure up enough to fully fill bottles all the way and it gets to the point where i just have to order a full 20kg bottle but i know that it still has plenty of co2 in it but just not enough pressure in it to fill the smaller bottles.
is there a divice or a way to get around this so i am not waisting half a botlle of co2 all the time?
thanks in advanced for any help

To do this you need:
1. Dip tube in bulk cylinder.
2. Temperature difference between bulk cylinder and bottle to be filled.
Keep the bulk cylinder warm and small bottles to fill chilled to achieve a temperature difference between the vessels. Higher temp in the bulk cylinder means a few more PSI in the bulk cylinder. This slight difference in temp is enough to push liquid from the bulk tank to the small bottle. If the two vessels are the same temperature then there is insufficient pressure differences between the vessels to push enough liquid up the dip tube into the CO2 bottle. This is why tank fillers chill CO2 tanks to achieve a full fill. The bottle must be colder than the bulk tank.
