You cannot rely on bottle pressure to determine contents. When I fill my bottles. I write the empty weight on the bottle and then weigh it after. Generally it is hard to get all the air out to get a full fill with a simple transfer line.

    With a 2.5 lb bottle I can usually get about ten cycles with the valve.

    As far as the min pressure to operate the valve. I'd say around 100 psi. The surface area of the air piston is greater than the area of the water piston so you can get by with less air pressure than your suction piece pressure.

    Your CP isnt making anywhere near 100 psi. inlet pressure so there you go.

    I fill to 800-1000 i fill with nitrogen, run down the valve to 100 psi, use it up!!, also you can pm john mills!

    Gene, as long as you have more air pressure then intake pressure it will work, I've even pushed the valve closed by hand in a pinch to drive it in, you just don't want to build any intake pressure or it will open on its own, and i usually refill when it gets down to 500lbs, because it doesn't last long after that, in a emergency I've recharged with my NOS bottle, i don't know if that helped you or not, but thats all i got

    you can run them down to 400 psi no problem

    Pop-of valve PSI minimum?

    At what psi do you guys refill your C02 bottles? What's the lowest psi the valve will still work at?

    Thanks
