Maxflow help!

Alright so I'm getting a 13/3000 tank for my pump. But I also want to use one of the old "bulky" maxflows on the gun. I was wondering if I could put the 4500psi maxflow reg on the 3000psi tank and using a 3000psi compressor to fill it up to 3000psi. A friend told me it would over preasurize and kill someone (explode). If this method doesn't work is it possible that the new micro maxflow pistons and internals would fit in the old one.

Please help

You will be fine as long as you don't overfill the tank.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

Ok thanks. I've heard some talk about changing the burst disc to a 5k instead of a 7.5k. Is that necessary?

na no need if you were getting a 4500 tank and using a 3000 reg then you might be in for problems but using a 4500 reg on a 3000 tank should be fine although your output pressure might be low

Yes if you are putting a 4500 psi reg on a 3000 psi bottle you need to change the high side burst disk from 7.5K to the 5K. This is so you don't accidently overpressurize the tank beyond the test limit.

This. You are subject to whatever has the lowest pressure rating and have to adjust according to that.
