Reply To: carbon fiber tank rules at shoots.
Scott air packs have 30 year tanks. I don’t know if anyone besides fire/rescue services could even buy one.
Here’s a little info on just how strong the 4500 psi tanks really are.
The burst pressure for the tri-dimensional burst disk used in the Scott is 4800 psi. Carbon composite cylinders are made up of an aluminum alloy inner shell with carbon composite wraps and epoxy resin. They have a burst pressure of 12,000 psi, 6,500 without the carbon composite wrap
