48/3000 went off

I went paintballing on sat, when I left I filled the tank just under 3000psi and left it in my gear bag to use during week. Today I was sitting in my room and the loudest freaking boom went off from my bag. I checked the bottle and it's now empty. Im stumped on what/how this happend. It's an empire tank which is a month old.

Probably was set up against something that pushed the pin. My only guess

Sounds like you blew a burst disk. There probably was some reg creep going on and the pressure got above the LP burst disk and poped it. You'll likely need to service the reg and replace the burst disk.

You're going to need to replace your LP (low pressure) burst disc. It is going to be the one marked 1.8k on the top or side. The other one is your HP (high pressure) burst disc and is going to be marked 5k. Do not touch the 5k one, those ones rarely every go. Those are to vent the tank in the event of it being overfilled.

That would freak me out if I heard a loud bang like that and didn't know what happened, good to hear you figured it out.

This JUST happened to me two minutes ago, was just falling asleep (work nights) and BANG then hiss for like 20 seconds and of course I shoot up out of bed. Got on here to see for solution and saw the title. Great to have this forum.
