Yes, people have been begging Palmers for a tank reg for years.




It's possible but there is safety concerns... If we put a fill nipple on the side, then what prevents a customer from pumping 4500 psi to a CO2 tank? That's a big liability for something that only shaves about 1/2" off of the reg/reg combo. A special fill nipple and adapter is an option.



If the field has a co2 pump they should be able to pump the gas back through the reg.

Fixed pressure is a must since the pin would take the place of the adjustment screw.

There is also the issue of anti-siphons.

So,, for now,, the best option is the CA Cart Reg

Craig, what about incorporating one of the new overpressure relief valves in a co2 tank reg to prevent filling it over a pre-set pressure? Say once the doofus puts over 1.5k in it, it'll just harmlessly vent, not to mention getting his and EVERYBODY'S attention?

Still requires changing the CO2 fill setups to work with fill nipples- something fields may not want to deal with. It would be really interesting to find a way to build a CO2 valve that has an in/out switch, so when you turn a stopcock it allows air in, but when switched back, it regulates...

For now, that inline option looks really good- especially if we can get those stubby 16oz bottles back into production.

Those won't handle the pressures we need. A burst disc is required.

CMI made a reg that replaced the pin valve on a CO2 tank and didn't require any new filling system. But I believe it was as poorly made and designed as the R-2000.
