The standard maximum normal operating pressure for truck air brakes is 100 psi or in metric - 700 kpa. The tank will rated higher than that. Have a look for a plate on the tank. It's an air pressure reciver so it should be have a manufacturers design plate attached to it.

Thanks, your right there should be a plate but there isn't. Looks professionally built but with no tag, I also believe it will be rated much higher as most relief valves crack at 150 PSI.

My Truck tank (I bought new from Truckspings.com) has a SWP of 150psi and a max of about 250psi.

Mine charges to 105psi (then ARB pressure switch trips). I have a relief valve in the tank set to 150psi.
