How to fill co2 tanks with a air compressor?

My father has a industrail size air compression in his shop. I was wondering if anyone knew where to buy the adaptor for this? Or if anyone knew how to do this.

He is VERY correct. Remember that CO2 tanks are designed to carry LIQUID co2 which has a vapor pressure of 800psi or thereabouts. HPA tanks are rated at 3000-4500 psi. Also, a shop compressor, no matter how big, still only puts out about 150-300psi... so even if you have an adaptor, you would only be able to fill a tank to 300psi at the max. However, Co2 tanks just aren't made for HPA. They will fail at 900-1000psi when the burst disk goes out.

The 300psi you would be able to get into the tank would be pretty useless, and a waste of time in my opinion.

And like Medic said, any household or even mechanics shop compressor is only going to put out a couple to a few hundred PSI absolutely cranked up. It takes very special (Read: Expensive) compressors to fill up to 3000 or 4500psi. I don't think we have to explain why it's a bad idea to put 3k psi in a container only designed to hold a few hundred.

Of course, now Tom Kaye, the inventor of the Automag IS coming up with a high pressure/low volume compressor for paintball that does run off of a shop style compressor. It is reported to fill a 4500psi tank in several hours with inputs of 150-200 psi. Keep an eye out for it at Huntington Beach as I think he will be there promoting it.
