Corny Keg offers this TENNIS BALL REPRESSURIZER to help those running tennis camps, clubs, coaches or individuals save money and the Earth by repressurizing flat (dead) tennis balls to give them new life and make them last until the felt wears out. This repressurizer has a schrader valve to make pressurization easy, a two inch pressure guage that allows you to always see the amount of pressure inside of the tank, and a new lid that contains a safety pressure release device in case of accidental over pressurization keeping the unit safe to use.
This unit holds up to 60 tennis balls at a time and after three days to two weeks of pressurization gives new life to those dead tennis balls that generally just ended up in the landfill. This device saves clubs and individuals hundreds of dollars in new ball purchases and is safe and easy to operate.
Three day repressurization will only happen if you pressurize your tank with Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Check out our CO2 Charging Kit:
Drop any number of tennis balls up to 60 into the pressurization tank and reinstall the lid. The schrader valve allows easy pressurization with any air compressor or bicycle pump. Repressurization can be done at pressures from 32 psi to 50 psi depending on the time balls remain under pressure and the amount of bounce you desire. This process takes between three days and two weeks. When they are ready, pull the pressure release ring located in the new tank lid until all pressure is released. Then open the top and begin to enjoy your freshly repressurized tennis balls. After playing, the balls can be stored in the tank at 16-19 psi so that they will retain their internal pressure.
This unit is made from a used keg that has been cleaned and refurbished with new seals. While it may show some wear, our price certainly beats the $450 unit that is available elsewhere. This unit is also safe to use thanks to industrial grade parts and specially machined stainless steel fittings that are made to hold pressure. No parts are hammered together and held with glue and tape like some homemade units we have seen.
I couldn't have been happier with the assistance I received when placing my order. I am a complete novice to crafting a bar and was greeted with so much help and guidance within minutes of placing my order. This was for a work project that I had so much fun with and am looking forward to working with Corny Kegs for all future projects.
Great product, very easy company to do business with. I would suggest they need to do a little more work on their website. It's not really intuitive BUT if you call they answer and are very helpful stepping you through the process.
It arrived in very good condition (it was used). It was clean, all fittings and seals looked good, minimal damage or dents. Confident it will work just fine.
Works like a champ!
Worked great right out of the box. C02 Tank was newly inspected and was taken by an exchange fill service without question. Keg was a little beaten up on the corners but absolutely nothing that impacted functionality. Regulator, hoses, fittings, and nozzle all worked perfectly and we're brand new. Overall a wonderful and affordable expirence. If cosmetic appearance matters to you then get the new kit, if you're gonna keep it in a craiglist fridge for a garage kegorator and don't care about cosmetics this kit is THE way to go.
Using my three kegs for still wine. They work fantastic!
I've managed to re-pressurize on keg of 60 balls and I'm working on my second. Dave was extremely helpful in sending me videos that helped explain what I needed to do...very cool. A few of the balls in the first batch came out a bit lop-sided, but 90% or more seem to be working very well in their repressurized format. Stay tuned, looking forward to more batches!
Corny Keg is a great company
I thought twice about going used but these kegs were perfect. Don't think I'll buy new kegs ever again, which means I'll have more money to spend on my hops and yeast. Cheers!
Works great. There is a slight anomaly with the Schrader valves. They are on a soft base and the center moves around the inside of the valve making a solid connection a bit tricky. Also, if I put the valve cap on one of the kegs (I bought 2), it will depress the valve and thereby emptying the keg of the co2 gas, so I just keep the valve cap off of that one. Other than that, my first two repressurzings went well, repressuizing 120 balls in 3 days. Working my second 2 kegs with another 2 more to go after that, 370 balls in all.
Easy to use and balls have new life! The balls are now great for practice.
these kegs are useful for pressurizing old tennis balls
and it worked
