Here is what the fittings for the ball lock post looks like. They already have these made up so it should be just a matter of finding the right fittings.

I did find this 7/8 in. Compression x 1/2 in. Male Pipe Thread Adapter but I'm not sure if it would work. What do you guys think? From the pic it looks like I would just have to take the compression parts of the fitting off.


That fitting is male Pipe to a compression fitting to work with tubing (copper or even Nylon). My company makes many styles to work with stainless to Nylon (J844) to copper and steel. That is not the fitting you want. You need to find out the threads in the party pump and then come up with a coupler that will adapt to the CO2 ball lock threads. Threads are based on OD of the thread and the pitch. You can not just state 7/8", needs to be something like 7/8"-14, which is a very common JIC/SAE1926 or SAE45 thread. The hard part if the Ball Lock adapters are odd ball threads. Too bad they are not standard. Good luck.
