David Posted May 21, 2006 Share Posted May 21, 2006 I should know the answer to this stuff, but I don't. So help me out. I have a 7-gallon pancake style air tank rated to 200 psi. It has three female NPT outlets: 1 x 1/4" and 2 x 1/8". I'm all set with hose and chuck, but have some (probably silly) questions: 1) Should I have a regulator to automatically release any pressures above 200 psi to protect the integrity of the tank? 2) Should I have a regulator to control the outlet pressure? 3) Can I skip a regulator and simply put a fixed gauge on the thing, and monitor that I don't fill it at pressures above the tank's rating?
