For Immediate Release
Safety Reminder - Use No Oil or Petroleum Products

Oil and other petroleum products should not be used in paintball compressed air regulators, tanks or fill nipples.

Smart Parts, Inc.
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 should not be lubricated in any way other than what the manufacturer has specified in their instructions.
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.


Smart Parts, Inc., is a leading developer and manufacturer of equipment and accessories for the sport of paintball. For more information, visit www.SmartParts.com.

You know, this is an even BETTER reason as to why you shouldn't use oil in your marker, too. Too much chance of contamination.

It's just sad that people don't know stuff like this out of common sense. It just makes me cringe that kids will be using propane tanks with their new Tippmann C3's now...

I hear the c3's have a spark plug in them is it true? But anyways as long as no1 who owns a c3 smokes there should hopefully be no injuries

I´ve seen this at first hand. This incident happened here in Spain, in the Madrid Millenium series a month ago (I was there looking at the semifinals), with the result of three guys injured... and it could have beeen more serious....

you know, if people understood the mechanics behind a diesel engine, they wouldn't do such things. Quite simply put, atomized petroleum + pressure = boom.
