Reply To: Air tank safety



For safety reasons and because I believe it puts less stress on the high pressure side of my AV compressor I only fill my 74' CF tank to 4,250 psi (293 BAR). My tank does not run down quickly and when it does, I just fill it back up.

I also fill my 250 BAR gun to only 240 BAR which ends up at 230 BAR after it cools for few minutes.

My reasons for doing this is because I respect the potential energy of HPA. I also believe it puts less stress on my equipment. More is not always better.
