Well picked up a brewing system the other day, all I'm missing is a co2 tank and a regulator.


Then my dad gives me an oxygen tank, one that's not quite waist high painted green.... it's been unused and empty for a year.... was from one of his clients a long time ago.



I'm hopeing I can pull the valve off this tank and install one that'll allow it to be filled with CO2 to use with a keg system...... anyone know of a place where I could find such a fitting?



After I get it setup, I am going to get it inspeccted to verify that it holds presssure.

I'd be surprised if you could get an O2 bottle filled with CO2. Very surprised. But you can probably trade it for a proper tank. Be careful, though. Some oxygen tank sizes are deemed "rental only" and it could be confiscated. Might want to check it out before hauling it in. Wish I had more info, but somebody here surely does.

I've got a pressure regulator (show remaining gas and pressure you're pumping) that I'd like to get rid of. Make me a reasonable offer, no idea what it's worth. I don't think I can ship you the empty CO2 bottle.

Got a 5 gallon (?) soda keg too. God knows it probably needs some serious cleaning though.

Not going to happen. To prevent danger from substitution of contents, valves are not commonly available...IIRC, you need a CGA 320 service. Threads are slightly different on oxygen, IIRC that is a .854" x 14 where CGA 320 is 0.825 x 14.

Your better off buying a CO2 cylinder made for the job.

That old O2 cylinder likely needs to be fully hydro tested and recertified.

Also most suppliers won't fill a tank they did not lease out or one that has another suppliers ID on it.

There are also D.O.T. issues for transporting a cylinder that is mis labeled.

Buying the proper tank/valve assy is much cheaper in the long run.
