Oil or petroleum products should not be used in compressed air regulators, tanks or fill nipples
Loyalhanna, PA - June 27, 2006
Following a recent accident at a European paintball tournament, we would like to remind the users of Max-Flo compressed air systems - and all other brands of compressed air systems - that no oil or any petroleum based cleaner or lubricant should ever be put into paintball compressed air regulators or tanks.
Some players have taken to the practice of using oil as a stop-gap measure, believing it is a correct way to repair a damaged or worn fill nipple seal. Unfortunately, this can create a hazardous situation.
When exposed to compressed air, flammable
liquids such as oil become more flammable, and in some cases can ignite
just from their own heat. For this reason, compressed air regulators, tanks
and fittings for paintball
Max-Flo compressed air systems should only be lubricated with SL33K paintgun lubricant, and only as prescribed in the Max-Flo instruction manual.
We would like to encourage the paintball media, and paintball players everywhere to help spread the word that oil and compressed air systems don't mix.
