How JacPac Works
JacPac® works by using liquid CO2 as a propellant to power pneumatic - air powered - hand tools. It is the same type of propellant used in "paint ball" guns and the CO2 is contained in a 9 oz or 20 oz cylinder that is light enough to rest comfortably on your belt. This is what replaces the traditional air compressor.
The Power of CO2
Vast amounts of CO2 gas can be stored in a very small space when converted to liquid, so this makes JacPac CO2 an excellent power source in terms of energy stored versus size of the cylinder, or to put it in the way that matters, the number of shots per fill of the cylinder. The JacPac regulator controls the amount of pressure released during operation.
