hi guy / gals,
im new to the fourm and i got a question, i got everthing i need to fill my 20oz cylinders,
1. 10000lb of co2
2. scale, mail type
3 gauges that connect to the co2 cyl
4. filling lever and connectors
pretty much set, however, as ive gotten older i've gotten wiser! so
I am asking what are the gauges to be set at before filling the 20 oz tank ( these are the two gauges that pretty much look like weiding gauges that connect to the main bottle, then what is the precedure to safe filling a 20 oz co2
i really like to know this since i ve asked a couple of different people and gotten just as many different answers

CO2 is filled as a liquid. You don't really need gauges to fill tanks at all. You're filling by weight not pressure (so your scale is the only measuring apparatus you need). Hook the 20oz bottle up to the whip, and open the purge valve to drain the tank. Now that you know it's empty, zero the scale. Then open the bulk tank valve and watch the scale until it hits 20oz (1lb 4oz). Then shut off the bulk tank valve, undo the pin depressor on the whip (which releases the pin valve on the tank) and purge the line to remove the pressure so you can unscrew the tank. That's it.

If you're not running on siphon fill tanks, you're done right there.
10000lbs of co2?
you have 200 50lb tanks?

You also need to chill the tank unless you are using one of those damn CO2 pumps which have a tendancy to overfil tanks... especially when the kid behind the counter won't use the scale because someone "wiser" than him told him the pump stops when the tank is full... yeah

10k lbs of CO2 you must work at a brewery that big SS tank is alluring but not the most ideal way to fill. You only get gas not liquid out of those tanks and you will never get a correct fill that way.
5,10, 20, 30, 60, 90 lbs tanks are the norm they need a dip tube installed (siphon) visit your local fire extinguisher recharger for fills and info.

I think it's safe to assume that was some sort of typo...I was looking at getting a set up for an outlaw field, and since I'm the smarterest they want me to do it.

They do make cradles to gravity fill, as opposed to siphon fill, but they seem to inherently unsafe.
