Do any of you think those personal small oxygen tanks that elderly people use would be good as an oba tank? My neighbor had a few lying around and I was able to help myself.

There was a thread on it that I read recently. Other than the new regulator the answer was still no. Liquid co2 and o2 have different properties and pressures.

I'm not sure what this means.

Most places won't fill it.

Better?

Easy there tiger. I didn't mean to use as a co2 fill up. I meant to plumb it in with a compressor. Sorry for being unclear.

I would think they would be great and easy to find a location to put it. I think they are rated to 1500 or 3000 psi ...not that it would be needed....
I might need to find me one.

Yeah. I asked professor google and most of what I found said they are rated at 2000 psi when they get filled. So, I have three, possibly four of the ones I pictured above. Now I just need to figure out how and where to mount them.

I was thinking on the trans skid. They are small enough I bet they'd fit but I think that might be to hot for them. I'm excited now. Haha

With a compressor? Most of the time you need an inlet and an outlet to run it efficiently. Just my take on it.

Damn. I forgot about that. Are there check valves inside of the tanks that stop air from coming out of the inlet?

Edit: I don't think so because people put outlets on the manifolds in the engine bay which would be before the tank. So I dont see a problem with plumbing it all into the same lines.

You would have to do a regulator type input and output if you went with a setup like this. And a heck valve before the air entered the tank

I would think you drill a hole in other end and weld in a bung with threads and move to the next step...and the check valve won't be in the bottles...they will be in the regulator...pull it and thread in whatever you want. You might even be able to find a two way valve, one that allows a supply and return kinda deal?? That would eliminate having to drill and weld the other end.

Maybe I'm stupid today but I still don't understand why I'd need an outlet port. If I have them connected together to act as one tank, why wouldn't it be alright to use the same inlet as an outlet? I'm sorry I'm not getting it. Maybe I need to go look at a 120v compressor to see what I'm missing.
