    Question Scott NxG2 air bottles - Snap-Change Conn

    Is there an adaptor/device available to connect the Scott Snap-Change connection used on the NxG2 air packs to a pressure regulator for use with air tools, air bags, etc? The CGA connection on these air bottles has a check valve which prevents you from getting air out when you connect such a regulator, i.e., fill only. We have converted over to these air packs from another manufacturer's air packs and would prefer to only have to carry one style air bottle (any other air bottles (including older Scott air bottles without changing the valve) are not compatible with the NxG2 air pack due to the Snap-Change connection). Or, is there a company that makes a regulator which can be used with these bottles to supply air to tools, etc.? Does Scott have plans to produce such a regulator?

    In answer to your question, no there is not an adapter. In suggestion, get four or five Scott/MSA bottles, threads are the same, just for tool use..OR just use an air line connected to the rig.

    Default Yes an adapter will be available

    The company I work for was very concerned that the NexGen bottles could not be used for Pneumatic equipment, and we visited their booth in Denver at the August Chiefs conference.

    The representative from the factory advised that an adapter was being developed to facilitate the use of a standard CGA regulator.

    A simple fix would be to build an adapter that goes from the rit fitting to your tool regulator.
    Anyone that services the pack should be able to build it for you with little problem.
