The tube is stamped 190 I believe. 10 bar is a lot when added to the already massive pressure of 190. They will probably take even more, but do you want to keep stretching the metal that little bit more, over and over again?

You probably can, but there really is no need, I fill to about 165-170, and I would think most members do the same. Rog

Hi,

Reading this thread about the sweet spot (viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2942) may explain the last response. It's also worth remembering that it's BAR we are talking about not PSI. 190 Bar is about 2800 PSI.
