    Where can I find a high pressure tank?

    It needs to be around 10 gallons and capable of storing 6000psi. Thanks

    Okay I should say, It doesn't NEED 6000PSI. BUt it would make me feel better if it was rated for it.

    Scuba?

    I have no clue, but that would be my first guess.

    6000 psi is a lot. I mean, that's really a lot. I believe most commercially available pressure tanks such as for O2 are probably rated for 3-3.5K with a working pressure of 2-2.5K.

    Yea, I think 6000 might be a bit much. I'll have to see what my needs theoretically would be. I suspect that a working pressure of 2.5k might do it. I'll have to dig back into my brain 2 years and remember some chemistry to find out.

    NOW I am a little more than curious.

    What will be stored in the tank and how will you pressurize it?

    There's nothing that you'll find off the shelf that will be rated for 6k, what you're going to be looking at will be expensive.

    Very true.

    polara, can you imagine a HPAC in his garage?

    I'm guessing from some sort of chemical reaction.

    Bring earplugs.

    You know the reverse threaded bolt on the aft end of the HPAC's? A couple of A-Gangers on my boat tried to take it off one time... They put so much torque on it they completely smeared the bolt. With a bronze ford wrench. If I remember correctly the cheater bar was about 8' long and both of them were hanging off of it. They put 3200+ ft.lbs. of torque on it in the wrong direction.

    Geez, 6000psi? I think that'd be getting into inch(es) thick cast iron tanks held together with lots of very large bolts. Not something you're going to move around to sweep under.

    Nope, everything would be welded, and probably stainless.

    My first guess would be to try the friendly folks over at Airgas.

    You might also try talking to some hydraulics suppliers (used or new). 4000 psi is not uncommon in hydraulics, although 10 gallons of pressurized volume may be. Also, I'm not sure if they'd be well suited for gasses. I'm kind of doubting it.

    I've seen some sweet carbon fiber hydrogen tanks rated at 5000 psi, but I think those were custom made for the application (read: $$$$).

    By the way, a tank rated at 5000 psi will have a burst rating much higher than that. I think a factor of safety of 2-3 is typical, so 10-15,000 psi.

    I read about a hydrogen gas tank built from CFRP that was rated to (and required) around 6000 psi. This was for use in fuel-cell electric cars. Not sure if they were planned to have a capacity of 10 gallons, though.
