i guess it should be in air sections. But i figured seeing how the only people to use the tanks are us pumpers it should go here. But fine...at your request i shall move this to Air sections. :evil:

I saw this in APG, I figured it was fairly reliable as a source. Good thing too my 4oz needed a hydro in 1999!


This ONLY applies to tanks produced after the ruling. If your tank needed a hydro in 1999, it's still out of hydro.

Technically it's 1993. But the field still reserves the right to deny filling any tank should they deem it not safe.

I thought they re-ruled on it around 2000.

Good to know...

Although I have never had a problem filling co2...most places around me only check HPA hydro dates.

The info you want is 49 CFR 180.209 (copied to this post as well). Keep in mind that it does not say ONLY 2"x2' tanks are exempt, it says tanks meeting that size are included in exemption from testing. The earliest edition of the CFR that I have access to is 1997, and this ruling is listed.

Bear in mind that on the catalina cylinders page, it has this section:

Quote

DOT-3AL Cylinders "2 by 2 rule" (Catalina Cylinders Cliff Impact Division only)


This is ONLY correct for catalina cylinders. the 2"x2' rule applies to ALL cylinders made. It only applies to 3AL aluminum cylinders FOR CATALINA, since that is what they manufacture.
