I have read that the push-in air line connectors are only rated for up to 200psi, but I was wondering if you can go higher without damaging anything. If I go higher than 200psi, will I need to replace all the push-in connectors with some sort of fitting with a hose clamp?

I read that one person ran his air tank at 600psi, but they are only rated for up to 150psi :0 .

I have read that things such as gas bottles are tested at double the rated pressure.

I'm just wondering how far above 200psi I could go. It's no point having air springs that can take 300psi if the line connections can't go above 200psi.

Yes, I have just been through these 'new' topics :cheesy: .

Why are you digging up all these vintage subjects?

I think it might be about the right time for your next project! The Impala would surely be hard to improve upon.

So, what's next?

ive had them up to 420 psi with no problems. same goes for the 150 psi rated tank. blew out a bag 2 days later because it expanded with the high pressure and rubbed.

Thanks for your reply DusterNut :) . I suspected that I could go higher than 200psi, but I didn't know you could get away with that much :0 !

everything is rated with a safety factor taken into consideration..

maybe mark can elaborate
yes, it seems most all air penumatic products have a rating system. its like 1-4 such as my parker valves sure they say 150max on them but they in real tearm can handle about 500-600psi. and air tanks they same way my 150psi tank should take upwords of 300psi.

But just remember with all this excessive pressure, don't go trying to sue a manufacturer if something explodes and goes right through your spleen or something. :)

Thanks for the latest replies :cheesy: !

I read somewhere else in the forum that someone (can't remember who it was) who ran their tank at 600psi could measure its increased diamater at that pressure!
