Latest development. I have been reading and hearing about the new standard in the Scott 5.5 tanks. Yeah. Thats 5500psi! Luxfer is the manufacturer and I am working with a company for the pricing on them right now.

trying to get the tank only so I can put Joe’s valve on it if they can find the proper burst disc for them vs the 5k psi one that they currently have on them. Otherwise, I might buy the TJ3 and source the burst disc myself.  Even if I can only get it filled to 4500psi when traveling, I know my local firehouse will fill to 5500 for me whenever I am local. 

These are the same size as the current form factor we are used to dealing with, just a higher PSI/BAR/Minute rating. 

This excites me for some reason. MORE FILLS OFF A TANK NOW! 

Not on eBay, and only selling new right now from what I can find. Hoping that through Luxfer they are less expensive than through scott. Scott pricing is in the 1k-2k range. I’d be happy with tank only in the sub 1k range, closer to 500 and I would jump on it.
