How does a CO2 fill station work?

A fill station is a bulk CO2 tank, a fill hose and a scale. They are used by trained air smiths and paintball field employees to refill empty Co2 tanks. First the tanks are purged of all remaining Co2, then carefully refilled and weighed. If you are not trained on how to do this, do not attempt, at the risk of breaking the tanks burst disk or damage to you by the extremely cold gas.
