Default SS swagelok valve --> QD A question for the experts

Hi guys.

This isn't a keg question, but it is about CO2 and quick disconnects. I'm sure that some of you guys know exactly what parts I need.

I have this tank...

It's a 6 liter tank that's actually for whipped cream, not beer. And yes, that would be A LOT of whipped cream. (Please keep your jokes clean, boys and girls.)

I've been looking on the swagelok website, but I can't seem to find the right part. What do I need to connect this threaded outlet with a QD like on a corny keg, so that I can pressurize the tank with my CO2?

Any help would be appreciated.

If all else fails, I can weld a new fitting on.

OK... I'll try this another way.

How is this gas post threaded to a corny keg? I've never taken one apart.

when you unscrew either post off of a corny you have a male npt threaded stump, not sure of the size.

Thanks -- this might be easier than I thought. Just have to finish a keg... then I can use the fitting.
