04 June 2009 - 07:32 PMA number of years ago, Rob "Tyger" Rubin made a thread in the Air Systems forum about checking hydro dates on your tank :HERE
A lot of that information is still good, though some of it has become outdated, and some people just don't understand it.
I have a fairly expanded information write-up on what exactly your tank label means, with various photos for examples: HERE
I also have a number of very useful links in my signature as well; but then there are sometimes where everything is just greek.
If you have any questions regarding your HPA or CO2 Cylinders, such as "is it due? When? Where to get it tested? Who really made it?" , etc. please feel free to ask.

10 January 2008 - 05:11 PMThere was an accident reported (on PbN no less) from someone in the Holland, PA area and I'm trying to find more information with regards to it.
Here's a link to the reporting: http://www.pbnation....d.php?t=2504273
The person reporting the accident is the owner of the tank involved, which was on loan to the victim who was a personal friend.
The reg was damaged and\or separated from the bottle which resulted in severe head trauma to the victim and resulted in hospitalization of the victim.
The owner of the tank involved was not present when it occured and is relying on 2nd hand information with regards to events that took place.
Many of the people on PbN are scoffing at the report and calling it bogus. My concern is that they are not taking it as seriously as they should, especially if it did happen, which is why I would like to know if ANYONE in PA has recently heard of an accident of this kind occurring the weekend of January 5th, 2008
I have not been able to find any other information online about it. No news reports or anything, though my google-fu may be lacking in this case.
sartek hasn't added any friends yet.
