I can help as well....
 
For anyone in the Grand Valley (CO) area, I can hook you up if you are in need of a BCA refill. I work in the Aviation industry (for the last 20 yrs.) and can refill with dry nitrogen.

Moo's Ice cream in Jackson WY, Rick is the owner and he fills all types of tanks for avy Bags. Also very knowledgeable about all the systems, BCA, snowpulse, ABS. I just bought a couple refurb'd Snowpulse bags and he went through the whole system, showed me how to do the rebuild with the stickers and o ring, we test fired both and filled them up again.

$5 a fill

Float refill / Beacon Rental
 
Is there any place you can rent beacons around Dubois. Our group is staying at CCGR, arriving Dec. 27. Also wondering about BCA Float refill. Don't want to run to Jackson right away. TML won't let you keep beacons overnight.

Any help is appreciated.

If you are in the Island Park/West Yellowstone area, stopped by Hi Country Snowmobile Rentals for BCA Float Cylinder refills, BCA, beacon & pack rentals and 2013 Ski Doo rentals. Only Backcountry Guide service in West!

Look for a paintball store. If they can fill compressed air tanks, they can fill these too.

Grand Junction CO refill locations
 
Joe's Scuba Shack in GJ - $6

clarson80 02-04-2013 10:48 PM

Any Scheels sports will refill... official refill station...before I stopped there, I stopped at a scuba shop earlier this winter, where I had refilled last year, the scuba shop would not refill due to liability issues. If you need to refill your tank, do it well in advance, some places that CAN refill, won't.

A-T Enterprises in Norwood
 
We refill them here in Norwood here too.

refill locations rapid city sd
 
I stopped at Scheels and got a refill for $2. Did a test fire and stopped at a scuba shop on the west side of town. Forgot the name of the place. Charged $7.50. So if you are coming through Rapid Scheels is between exit 60 and 61 on the south side of I 90.

Could a place like airgas fill the cylinders? Or what kind of system is needed to do so? Thinking I might buy a big cylinder to fill them but not sure what is needed.

You need a step up pump system or banger cart as we like to call them at work. The bottle requires 2700 psi, even a fresh nitrogen supply cylinder is only about 2200 psi. I fill mine with dry nitrogen, unless you purchased a 5000 psi supply bottle you need a pump system to step up the pressure.

No problem -

ABS is not field re-fillable. They are nitrogen filled to I believe 4000 psi.

Snow pulse and BCA are both field fillable, they come charged with compressed air, but I have access to dry nitrogen at work so it's cake for me to refill.

[QUOTE=wrtmani;3547189]What do you charge to refill a cylinder? Thanks![/

They charged my wife $30 on Tuesday 2/25. To fill my BCA canister.
That's B.S.
Any ware else in Kalispell??

Gull in Missoula is $9 and they provided the refill kits (O-ring kit)

bajah2x 02-27-2014 06:48 PM

I fill my own BCA from a scuba tank,just get a paintball adapter.I feel its overkill to change the o-ring every time .I understand nobody wants to be sued.Did some testing and bag fully filled with only 900 pounds of pressure at 7000 feet elevation,so if tank is down on pressure a little i am not to worried about it.

gr8skidoo 02-28-2014 01:34 AM

We at I-90motorsports fill them for free...
 
It does not cost us much to refill our tanks and we enjoy all the new customers coming into our store for a refill(no charge). If you want to test your bag come down blow it off and hang out for a bit while we help will fix you up... (no charge)..
Our bet is you will spend a little bit while we help you pack and refill your bag.

Found a dive shop between kalispell and whitefish that fills them.
He did it for free.
Rock Bottom Dive Shop. 407-7819
