Pure Energy CO2 Tank
Potential Safety Concern

Dealer and Consumer Safety Product Advisory

Schiller Park, IL - Pursuit Marketing Inc. (PMI) has become aware of a potential safety concern regarding its Pure Energy CO2 tank-valve assemblies purchased before July 11th, 2000. All dealers and consumers are asked to review this notice and inspect all Pure Energy CO2 tank-valve assemblies.

This inspection will only take a few moments. If you do not feel confident that you can correctly complete this inspection, take your tank-valve assembly to your local paintball supplier for them to complete the inspection or return your tank-valve assembly (after completely emptying all the CO2 from it) to: Pursuit Marketing Inc., 5035 River Road, Schiller Park, Illinois 60176. Pursuit Marketing Inc. will reimburse all shipping charges.

Please consult the diagram below. The burst disk-retaining nut is the part requiring inspection. This part screws into the valve and does not need to be removed from the valve to complete this inspection. 
Look closely at the burst disk-retaining nut, it is hexagonal in shape. The nut should contain two holes drilled through the tightening face (the part you would use a wrench to tighten). These holes allow the release of CO2 from the tank, if the burst disk is activated by over-pressurization of the tank. This would  occur due to over-filling or over-heating of the tank which could cause the tank to rupture. If you discover a burst disk-retaining nut that does not have these holes please return the entire Pure Energy CO2 tank-valve assembly (after completely emptying all the CO2 from it) to Pursuit Marketing Inc., 5035 River Road, Schiller Park, Illinois 60176 for replacement. A reward will be offered to all persons returning any tank-valve assembly meeting the description above. 

Pursuit Marketing Inc. has always promoted safety in our sport. We believe it is important for all manufactures to bring any potential safety concerns to the attention of the public as soon as possible. If further clarification of this notice or if more information is required please contact: Michael Lukas at Pursuit Marketing Inc., 800-334-0502 ext 7157 or  via   e-mail:
