Tennis Ball Repressurizer – Reconditioned Tank
Corny Keg offers this TENNIS BALL REPRESSURIZER to help those running tennis camps, clubs 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 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.
Drop any number of tennis balls up to 60 into the reconditioned 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 55 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. In tests we have conducted, pressurizing with Carbon Dioxide (CO2) greatly speeds up the repressurization process. Within three days at 50 psi, the balls come out ready for play. When they are ready, pull the pressure release ring located on the brass pressure relief valve 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 14-16 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.
Carbon Dioxide Pressurization Kit can be purchased separately on our site.
