True re: threads and valve rating, but most are at least 200 bar. Definitely a limiting factor and maybe why it has a 2400 PSI burst disk. OMS burst disks rated at 2400 psi actually have a service up to 3600 to 4000 psi. Filling to this level will decrease the life of the disk. If it were on a 3500 psi tank I probably would only fill it to 3000 UNLESS it wer a LP tank - the limiting factor.
