Greetings Tracy
1st you need to know if it was full to start with. Most of the larger tanks
250, 291 will read 2400 psi. when full. Some suppliers don't fill beyond
2000 psi and the tank will not yield what we expect. Review CONWIN'S web
site for a full description of all the tanks by size and capacities.
Now for your question: if full at 2400 psi and you have 1400 psi you are
just over half full or empty. The way to calculate accurately is to divide
the 1400 by 2400 ( part divided by the whole) to give you 58.3 % full. Now
if you get 400 balloons in a full tank but you only have 58.3 % you multiply
400 by the % to give about enough helium for 233 balloons.
Don't let the math frighten you. use a calculator it'll do the work.
Does this help?
