There's certainly a lot of energy contained in those tanks and they should be treated with a great deal of respect.  Its educational to see what happens when they do explode so that we don t try it ourselves.   I would like to know, however, what the factor of safety is designed into them, and what the burst pressure is.  We're told that they are good for 15 years, but realistically,  the number of fill cycles would be a better way of limiting life.
