JT Unveils new C02 tanks with IVT!
 
IVT stands for Integrated Valve Technology

Paintball - JT Air Systems


The tank features an internal magnetic float which represents your liquid CO2 fill level on the indicator strip. This allows you to know when you are running low so you donít ever have to lose another game because you are out of gas and you will always know how much is left in your tank.

The patent pending IVT also eliminates accidental valve seperation, revolutionizing safety and reliability.

Is that a burst disk directly into the tank?

Greenmtnphantom 07-15-2009 10:26 AM

The burst disk is new tech guys thats awesome! Please tell me they had to do something different and new to put the disk directly on the tank and they aren't really saying that Burst disks are new

Seriously though the fill indicator is kind of handy

Except it doesnt work.... The fill indicator that is

And the whole design looks shakey..... I had to fill one at work the other day, looks cheap.

Greenmtnphantom 07-15-2009 10:31 AM

Ok let me refrase that then, a way of, at a glance, getting an idea of how much CO2 you have left would be handy

Titus 07-15-2009 10:33 AM

With co2 expanding with heat, etc isn't that going to screw up that level? Reminds me of those batteries with the life indicator on the side back 9 years ago. Don't see those that much anymore. And putting the burst disk in the tank, IMHO makes the product say, well if the disk in the valve fails, then this one won't. I understand HPA having 2 disks sometimes, but a co2 tank? And a 3K disk at that when the tanks rated for what 1800psi?

Good catch!

So now I can pay $40 for a CO2 tank that who knows who will actually hydro test and replace all of my $5 9oz's that are good forever? Yay! :rolleyes:

BigOldSkool 07-15-2009 10:59 AM

actually technically.. you couldnt hyrdotest this tank.

Burst disk in the neck unless they plug it some how.

All tanks these days come with a 3k disk. Its 3k burst vs 1800 working pressure of the tank, so its the right pressure.
