  • CO2 Regulators

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for a company (US or foreign) that can custom make a CO2 regulator that would fit onto a 12g size CO2 canister and alter both the pressure of air (amount) released as well as the frequency at which it is released. Here's an example:

    I need the CO2 canister to release a .2 second spurt of CO2 at a pressure of 5 psi and do this once per second.

    Any ideas for companies?

    You are not going to find a regulator like that. Take a generic regulator set to 4 psi and use a solenoid valve with a timer.

      Do you have any suggestions for companies that build the two components? I need to be able to adjust the psi and the timer with a knob and have it be ultra-miniature for a consumer product I am making

        You can probably just use a paintball regulator. For the solenoid and timer it will depend on flow rate needed. Pretty much you are going to have to pay someone to design it from scratch.

          +1. What you are describing sounds a lot like an airgun / paintball application. Hunt up a Drozd air pistol and have a look at the innards: http://www.imzcorp.com/en/company/123.html The Baikal / Izhmash folks are good engineers, and will take on contract work if you need a large quantity.

          ETA: The QB78 family of inexpensive air rifles from Shanghai Airgun Factory work on 12g CO2 cartridges, so their trigger/release/valve mechanism is basically already set up for doing what you want. Add a solenoid/timer/actuator and you're good to go for a prototype. Try calling Steven Archer - he's the US distributor, and no slouch mechanically either. http://www.archerairguns.com/

            Something like this: http://precisionmedical.com/homecare...56/easypulse56

            The only problem is your frequency may be too fast.

              There used to be devices like this for gas burst agitation in photo processing.
