But...Air Zenith sells kits with 200psi compressors, 200psi pressure switches, and included tanks. If a guy wasn't comfortable with that, he could call to verify rated WP.
When I configured my system, I planned for 200 p.s.i., so I verified the working pressure of all the components versus temperature to ensure the specified ratings would not be exceeded.

IMO a failure at 200 p.s.i. would be no fun.

Damn straight! Always drain your tank before doing any kind of work on your system - I learned the hard way when I had a brass check valve explode @200psi right next to my head whilst trying to crimp up a small leak. It's left me with a bit of permanent hearing damage.

Ouch!
Is this a new word game...LOL?

Was the check valve rated for 200 PSI? I think brass would be rated higher.

Yeah it's rated alright - stock Viair480 unit, except they're not "Baffoon" rated

This is the check valve used on my system. It is a Control Devices CA-12 Load Genie Unloading Check Valve. It is a 3/8" NPT valve, rated for 3 to 12 CFM flow.

The printed data sheet included w/ the part lists a maximum working pressure of 250 p.s.i., a maximum temperature of 450°F and a maximum compressor speed of 400 R.P.M.

The internal moving mechanism could be hurt by excessive torque. The instructions specify 10 ft-lbs of tightening torque, maximum.

Load Genies are extremely torque sensitive so a good rule of thumb for the male and female ports is finger snug plus 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
