    Default Storing nitrous bottles ??

    It was 103 degrees in my garage yesterday so I checked my bottles and they were at about 1200 psi. Will they blow off with too much psi? Should I keep them in the house in the A/C? The old lady will love that. It's not even hot yet. Wait till it gets 115+
    I may be growing older, but I refuse to grow up!

    I forget what the blow off seal is set at, but we've lost more than a couple at the river. Once we came off the water and the guy in the trailer next to us says" I don't know what happened but all hell broke lose in your van" come to find out two of the 4 bottles let go.

    When it's over 100* at the river never over fill your bottles by even as little as .5 lb. The pressure relief tab just might let go.

    I think the number " blow off" is around 1,400 ????

    A standard DOT 3AL 1800 cylinder should let go at 3000 psi...

    There's a reason behind hydro testing

    I was surprised at how thin that alumimun tab ( pop off plate) is

    I didn't remember them being that high( 3,000 psi)

    my new shop is sheet metal and uninsulated, gets hotttt in the summer and i've never blown a bottle or a supply tank. i usually fill my bottles during the hottest part of the day so there's a bigger pressure difference on the bottles when they come outta the deep freezer.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    I had a bottle mounted on the back deck of my Z28. I think it was June, I filled the bottle and didn't think about it getting that hot. Black car/black leather. Went outside that afternoon and the needle had wrapped around and was pegged on the underside of the needle stop at 0. My blowoff never popped, it was a new 15lb bottle. That would have been ugly. I was a nervous mofo taking that bottle inside to the a/c.

    should've just crammed the throttle and let off some pressure
