“Loren”How are going to get “an explosion”?  Don’t all tanks have a burst valve on them?  If the valve is close on the tank you make burst a line, a connection on the compressor, or damage the compressor in some other way.  The volume of air in the compressor and lines is pretty small, once a burst happens it will pretty well be done with expending energy. 
 


This is what I envision as the outcome. If they(builder/designer) have the burst disc set to rupture just above the max designed output, they apparently don’t think it will sustain much more pressure.


Yes, I feel the little compressor is really working hard to get to 4500 PSI.  Just like the “little engine that could”
