Does anyone know of an inline volumizer thats made? I'm looking for something about 1-1/2 to 2in long that has npt fittings on either end and acts as a volumizer inline between a tippmann power tube and the tank hookup.

Trying to adapt LPA kit for a Salvo if your wondering.

If you already have the Low Pressure kit for the Tippy, just use a brass tee on the volumizer. Buy a brass tee and a short brass nipple(enough to extend below the shells). That will add a port in between your power tube and volumizer to hook up the feed for your launcher.

Now, are you sure that the launcher can use low pressure air? If not, you'll have to add the tee before the air passes through your regulator. That is, unless I understood your question wrong. If you just have an expansion chamber, just add the tee anywhere you have an NPT connection and you'll be fine.

Who said anything about a launcher?

I'm trying to fit a LPK into a salvo body with no external modifications. It can be done but its a matter of sourcing a volumizer with the proper dimensions and setup.

So you need to increase the volume because you want to lower the pressure consistant with Boyles' Law?
That volume is then merely an extension of the valve chamber itself?

Bear with me, I'm trying to understand.
The size you specify is about the size of a 12g, but trying to hide that in the body without external mods would be custom work. I doubt you would find anything off the shelf.
A dummy 12g in a backbottle changer from a bottomline would do it. But it's about the same as using an expansion chamber.
Just how ghetto are you willing to go?

what he's after is essentially an expansion chamber without the internal baffles. I did something similar to my old 98 to get it running in the <300psi range. take any inline expansion chamber (lapco's work well) and remove the internal baffles. Some have a stem that connects one end to the other internally, and that has to stay there to maintain integrity.
