Paintball HP systems

300 bar full power for your marker. The most important accessory for every paintball marker is the HP system , because without a reasonable and constant air supply even the best model works only half as well.

In general, a distinction is made between the simple HP systems made of aluminum and the more complex but also more expensive composite bottles made of fiberglass or carbon fiber composite.

The aluminum air systems have, as the name implies, a simple but sturdy aluminum bottle and are thus generally slightly heavier than composite bottles. The biggest advantage of these systems is clearly the price. You get such an HP system to about one third of the price that would otherwise pay for a composite system. But these bottles are also almost twice as heavy as the composite bottles of the same size. It should also be noted that you can fill the aluminum bottles almost exclusively with a filling pressure of only 200 bar. They are not suitable for operation with 300 bar filling pressure.

The composite systems are completely different in their processing. Here, a core, which is usually made of plastic, or aluminum, coated with a braid of carbon fiber or fiberglass and then sealed with very hard and durable synthetic resin. Made from multiple layers of ultra-lightweight material, the Paintball Composite HP systems are significantly lighter and stronger than comparable aluminum models. The bottles can be easily filled on the field with a pressure of up to 300 bar and thus offer a much larger air reserve.

With HP systems decide size and weight

Modern paintball HP systems , also called air systems or preset systems, are made of lightweight and very durable materials such as aluminum, glass and carbon fiber as well as a synthetic resin coating. This gives the bottles a very high stability and reduces the weight to an absolute minimum. Whereas comparable air systems weighed just 1.5 to 2 kilograms a few years ago, today you can already get bottles weighing only 600 to 700 grams. Although this difference seems to be low and possibly negligible for the loan, these technical innovations and weight savings are a blessing to the professional paintball player. The weight of the equipment is significantly reduced by the much lighter systems. This also has a strong impact on the handling of the marker, as the player with a light HP bottle is much more agile than with a chunky, heavy bottle.

How long has my bottle TÜV?

In general, there are several points of reference regarding the TÜV at HP bottles. A bottle always has a date of manufacture and a final date. The date of manufacture provides information on the month and year in which the bottle was produced. To give an example, 01/2014 would correspond to a bottle produced in the month of January of the year 2014.

The final date or expiration date of the bottle is the date on which the use of the bottle must be definitively discontinued. HP bottles have a total lifespan of 5 to 25 years, depending on the type and material.

For example, an aluminum bottle always has a shelf life of 10 years from the date of manufacture. If you now want to know how long the bottle can be played until it has to be rebuilt, just take the date of manufacture and count on it for 10 years. The special thing about aluminum bottles is that they have virtually no expiration date. So the player can extend the TÜV every 10 years for another 10 years. However, it should be noted that the price of a bottle is usually almost as expensive as a new bottle, since prices for HP systems have dropped very sharply in recent years. We therefore recommend simply buying a new one after 10 years with such simple aluminum bottles.

For composite bottles, it looks quite different, they have only 5 years TÜV after the date of manufacture before they have to be rechecked. It should also be noted that eg models with plastic core can not be re-checked. Although these bottles are particularly light and therefore in great demand, their approval expires after 5 years and the Paintball HP bottles may not be used.

Also, the expiration date can vary widely with Composite HP systems, so there are bottles that have a total life of ten, fifteen or even twenty years, depending on the manufacturer.

What do I have to consider for safety with paintball HP systems?

The most important things to keep in mind are that the bottle always has a TÜV mark, in this case a PI mark of the European TÜV, as it is usual with paintball bottles in the EU and thus also in Germany. Any sensible paintball retailer will only offer certified bottles, so you do not have to worry about them. Control does not hurt either.

Further, of course, should be taken to ensure that the bottle still has valid TÜV, that is not already expired or needs to be re-examined.

The last thing you should look for is the regulator. For the Paintball HP Regulator, there is no prescribed test standard, ie he does not have a TÜV seal or the like. Since most brand regulators anyway come from the US and have the local DOT standard, they have the necessary standard, but still on paper no European MOT. An alternative is provided by regulators who, just like the bottle itself, have a PI exam. European paintball manufacturers are now bothering and subjecting their regulators to quality assurance to this test procedure. You recognize the regulators by the stamped PI sign.

Unfortunately, there are also manufacturers and suppliers who save in the wrong place and import and sell cheap regulators without the necessary quality standards. Although the customer can save a few Euros here, in the end he usually has only trouble and racing with his HP bottle.

We therefore generally recommend to our customers when purchasing a proven brand product that comes from at least one of the major, well-known US manufacturers, or a PI-approved regulator from the European area. Everything else will be looked for in vain, because safety works for us!

How much shot can I make with the filling of an HP system?

In general, when it comes to the question of the air consumption, or the number of shots you can do with a bottle filling, it depends very much on the material used. All sorts of factors play a role here, eg the HP system and its filling pressure, the volume of the bottle, the paintball marker and its operating principle and of course the set firing speed (FPS number).

We would like to explain it simply by means of a commercial example. We take a Tippmann 98 marker and similar blowback markers like Spyder and Klone.

The Tippmann 98 is known to most players and therefore a very good reference. With a 0.8 liter Aluminum HP system with 200 bar filling pressure, this marker can produce about 400-500 shots, depending on the temperature and the FPS set. If you use now on the same model a 1.1 liter HP bottle with 300 bar filling pressure, the number of shots that can be fired already at about 900 to 1200. Again, depending on external influences such as temperature, weather and of course the FPS Number. So, with a Compostie HP system that has only 1.5 times more pressure and only 0.3 liters more volume, you still have a yield that is at least twice that of a low-cost aluminum system. We therefore advise players who really play regularly to buy a larger system right away. This is just more fun on the field because you just can not run out of air.
