Large NOS Bottle Question

OK I got a Large NOS bottle from my local welding supply. The owner is a friend. The receipt says 300 cubic feet. What is that in lbs? I am trying to figure out how many times I can fill the 2.5lb bottle.

No. The 2.5 lb bottle is the bottle that is on the bike. The Large bottle is the bottle I get fromt he welding supply that I transfer the NOS from to the 2.5 lb bottle.

Are u sure the BIG bottle has NOTHING written on it in terms of lbs, or kilos?

I could easily be wrong, its been long since I studied all this, but I think 'cubic feet' is a unit of volume whereas 'lb' is a unit of weight. To convert between both, u will need to know the density of the substance inside!!!!!!!

Sorry about not answering much of your question though...just trying to help a bit..

lots of em






ok 300 cu ft converted to ounces is:
287251.948051948 ounces
covert that to U.S.pounds :
17953.246753247 pounds
that doesnt anywhere seem correct.:BangHead:

is that the bottle pressure in pounds I came up with? it still seems high, I would think bottle pressure would be in the 2k range or so

I dont think its something standard. 300cubic foot of mercury is going to be MANY more pounds than 300cubic foot of water, for eg.
density of the substance inside is the factor..isnt it?

You would need that much NOS to make it go fast.

How much pressure is that 300 cubic ft. under? and how much pressure does the 2.5lb bottle handle?

the same, when I would get my bottle filled the guy would use a transfer pump. Sometimes the pump would freeze up and he would transfer via gravity feed and by simple big bottle having more volume, it took a little longer, but always got to full pressure.
