what do you mean by safety factor? like is it 300 percent more than what they so? so a tank thats rated at 150 has 45 more psi handling than they say makeing it 195?[/b][/quote]
300percent, but I'm just guessing.
So lets say 200 percent to play it safe..

which means it should hold 300PSI with no problem..

if they said it could hold 300 PSI, people would try to put 500PSI in it, which wouldnt be good.

most high quality tanks use a 4:1 safety factor, so a 150psi rating would give it a 600psi burst pressure, but there are so many people making tanks now, i dont think a lot of them are built that well.
