    Default 300 bar flow reducer

    Hi,

    who can help me with finding one. If I understand it correctly it is a piece of brass with male thread on the on side and female on the other side with a small hole connecting the two (much like a gas flow jet) this reduces the air flowing. My one 300bar cylinder's valve is not as smooth as the other and it takes a bit more force to open and this invariably causes me to open it a tad fast making me slam it shut again This is a pain as the process goes on till it is filled

    Once the 300 bar settles down to around 230 it is managable, what I also do with a full cylinder is open the bleed valve slightly, then open the main valve slowly till the air starts escaping through the bleed valve then close the bleed valve, I find it easier to control.

    I hear you Keith. my one 300bar works well. but the other is more like a on off switch. I can close in time but I like to fill my rifle in say 30secs or so, no less. THe tube must not warm up at all. so even when it is low pressure it still fills to fast for my liking.

    Get a new vaulve for the tank if you have the funds.

    Otherwise make your own flow reducer.I suspect the hole is going to have to be on the mighty small side if it is to be efective .

    Kolskoot in Randburg, last time they went for R250. Works brilliant with a 300 bar bottle

    Jip Miles. It is fine just not very smooth. I have been told that some valves are like this. Not malfunctioning just not very small opening when opening.

    The con with a reducer like that is they often muck around with the accuracy of your gage reading. I would consult a pneumatic dealer / manufacturer first. Otherwise, just fill your tank to 250bar or so.
