Volo Kite Pump - Compressed Air Kite Pump

Postby invivo » Thu Sep 03, 2009 1:59 pm

We've just released, this season, the Volo Kite Pump.

Its a compressed air or CO2 Kite Pump.

The pump uses refill able paintball tanks and an inflator designed for kite pumping.

One 20 Oz tank fills about 3 12M kites. We've just added a new tank to the line up that includes a tank gauge. Usually CO2 tanks don't have any way to tell the amount of liquid CO2 in the tank.

Check it out at http://www.pumpkiteup.com

Let me know if there are any questions.

how many times can you inflate your kite off that? say a 10-12 meter kite. I found my 5 lb tank was good for 5-8 pumps.

On a 20 Oz CO2 tank you can get about 3 fills of a 12M kite. We are using a venturi valve - which sucks in air with the CO2 as the kite fills, so you get about a 40% gain in kite filling capacity with the venturi. The pump can fill the leading edge of a 10M kite in under 30 seconds with no risk of harm to the bladders. It pretty cool - I'm working on getting some more time trials videos loaded up to the site this weekend (looking like light wind for the weekend here - so well probably be in the office).
