Default Chrome Moly Tank Expiration Question


Yes, I'm well aware of that. Someone was referring to a fattened out 9oz,
and I was referring to the standard acme skinny thin one(with a less than 2"
diamater). As noted, I wasn't sure if 12oz'ers(standard size ones) needed
hydrotesting, and thought it went without saying that it was because of the
size thing that they would or wouldn't need it, mainly because that very
fact had been stated about a dozen times in this thread so far.

I love how you chime in with useful information JUUUUUST after the
information has already been provided. It makes you look soooooo smart.

Does it matter if it's A-lum-I-num or Al-U-min-I-um?

Its a DOT reg, anything under 2" doesn't need a retest.

And you apparently don't know your metallurgy that well as chromoly loses
strength after repeated cycling
also. So does titanium. CarbonFiber is technically the only structural material
that doesn't lose strength
during repeated cycle loads. Aluminium's big issue is that it doesn't have a
defined fatigue limit.

only if you live in a country that doesn't drop letters from words because
they're too hard to spell otherwise.

That's mainly a regional thing, like Castro street.

why? They used to make tanks up to about 15oz in the same diameter
as 7oz Al and 9oz chromoly tanks. They just increased the length more and
more for other sizes. You could get 10s, 12s, 14s, and so on. Heck the NEW
12oz CrMo tank I have is only 57mm diameter (a hair under 2.3"). There's also
a 13ci-3000 HPA tank that's pretty damn small diameter.

F****ve me for stepping into this conversation, but I do have a
question.

Of the tanks that I sell, both "alum & chro moly" the only one that I
have found that actually states on the label "for what that is worth"
is a squatty 16oz pretty fat and short. It says "never needs testing".
Interesting considering the conversation in this thread. I have
actually been searching the internet for some solid information on
this issue.

Second, on a fiber wrapped tank, I have seen that they put a new label
on the tank with the new test day. On a alum or chro moly tank in
which the test date is stamped into the tank, how do they put a new
test date on it?

I think they hammer it in there with a stamp and hammer.

I'm sure it's all depressurized at the time.

*clank* *clank*

**BOOM!*
