Abstract : A gas-pressurizer is disclosed. An enclosed canister surrounds a piercing mechanism, over the end of a pressure-conducting pipe. The piercing mechanism is comprised of an end-cap with portals there through, a stub, and a gas dispensing, piercing pintle riding upon the stub. When pressurized gas is sent through the pipe, it forces the pintle through the upper end of the canister, allowing the gas to pressurize a storage tank.
