The Porta-Air CO2 regulator

By Leonard Ho - Posted
The Porta-Air CO2 regulator is a highly compact, affordable, USA-made CO2 regulator originally designed for paintball but has other diverse applications such as CO2 delivery for planted aquariums and calcium reactors, especially when real estate is a premium.

The Porta-Air Indiegogo campaign supplied Advanced Aquarist with the following press release:

Rodney Neil has teamed up with I&I Sports to develop and market the Porta-Air Regulator which can be used to inject CO2 into your aquarium to enhance lush plant growth. Can also be used to install calcium reactors for reef aquarium setups.

The Porta-Air Regulator is a compact unit which attaches to any Paintball CO2 tank and can be adjusted from 0-150 psi and outputs to either 1/8" NPT or 1/4" NPT (but with adapters can be adapted to output to 3/8" NPT or 1/8" BSP. Paintball CO2 tanks come in 9oz, 12oz, 20oz and 24oz sizes and can easily be refilled at any Paintball store or field, many sporting goods & hardware stores and industrial compressed gas businesses.  The Porta-Air Regulator can also be used on any Paintball Compressed Air tank.  With hundreds of thousands of these tanks in use, the Porta-Air Regulator provides dozens of other uses when not being used for Paintball!

The versatile and low cost Porta-Air Regulator is tested and ready for mass production. At the time of this article, the Indiegogo campaign is in process and will be used to fund mass production of the Porta-Air Regulator. Upon completion of the campaign, Rodney hopes to offer these quality constructed units to the large group of Paintball CO2 and Compressed Air tank owners around the world!
