26 April 2012 - 11:53 AMyou know what ? i have yet to hear anybody ask where is the paint being broken at ?
the barrel tip ?
the marker to barrel junction ?
at the detent ?
in the middle of the barrel ?
right at where the bolt might chop it coming out of the hopper ?
When you start breaking the paint, have you broken the marker down to determine the point of origin ? that will go a LONG way in determining what action to take.
3 different markers were used. definitely not a ball chop as all hoppers were clean. All broken somewhere in barrel
23 April 2012 - 07:10 AMHow cold was it and what kind of weather?
Have played in about 6 different games with weather ranging from 10 C to 25 C. (50 F to 77 F)
My question is : Is it possible for a Regulator to malfunction and "pump" out more than 850 psi ?
What instrument can i use to measure the pressure from my tank , to my marker?
If you say a regulator, then what kind? Where does it attach? Any brand in particular ?
21 April 2012 - 02:22 PMHow old is the paint you were using ? If the tanks were two years in the attic, how about the rest ?
If the air in the tank would have been a problem, then the burst disk would have gone, or they would have slowly leaked out. The fact that they held pressure, is a testament that they are in good working order. As far as sending spikes, you stated that you had to turn your pressure down to 250 or less to prevent breaks. Do your tippmanns have third party regs on them, or are you using the standard pressure allen screw adjustment ? Either way, the "spike" would also have to defeat your secondary pressure regulation restriction... allen screw or regulator. And if it were to do that, you would have some other things happening, like blowing out seals, o-rings, a blowback type of gun when it shoots that much pressure would be waaay louder than they normally are... like scary loud.
Did any of those other things happen, like blown out o-rings or extremely loud shots ?
1) The paint is brand new from different paintball fields.
2) The burst disk would only have gone if the pressure was above 1800 psi . Right? What If it was say, 1200 psi? Wouldn't that cause a problem?
3) No 3rd party regs or any mods on all Tippmans. Just stock allen screw. And if allen screw was all the way in , is it that reliable to be able to hold down the spike of say 1000 psi?
4) Did not sound any louder than usual. And maybe no O-rings were blown because the spike was just over 850, that the tippmann parts had the tolerances not to blow apart, but for the paintball not to be able to take it.
Dont know what else it could be.
