How does a paintball regulator work?
A regulator is a devise that regulates the pressure of the air entering a paintball gun it accomplishes this by cutting off the air source when the pressure in the regulator’s chamber reaches a certain pressure. A regulator only controls the incoming pressure as well as the incoming pressure was controlled.
What pressure do paintball guns run at?
High-pressure air, compressed air or nitrogen, is stored in the tank at a very high pressure, typically 21,000–31,000 kPa (3,000– 4,500 psi ). Output is controlled with an attached regulator, regulating the pressure between 1,700 kPa ( 250 psi ) and 5,900 kPa ( 860 psi ), depending on the type of tank.
What paintball tank should I get?
If you are someone with an average height, then the ideal paintball tank size for you is usually the 48/3000 or the 68/4500. For really tall players and those who intend to carry the tank on their bank, it would be best to pick one, which is on the 90/4500 or the 100/4500 size.
How fast does a paintball gun shoot in mph?
The average paintball has a velocity of about 280 fps, or 190 mph, which is far slower than any regular gun.
How much psi should a paintball tank have?
Compressed air tanks are pressurized up to the tank’s rating of 3000 PSI or 4500 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch). The pressure is then regulated through the tank’s regulator down to a lower PSI (450-850) to fire the paintball.
Can paintball tanks explode?
Yes, paintball tanks can explode. There have been a few reported cases of paintball tanks exploding and harming others near the explosion.
