    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    Well said... Thanks for all the people that understand the issue being a flawed design in the Pressure Pro and not an argument on how we should fuel and how dangerous the other methods are. I stand by my original statement that these pressure tanks are dangerous as built and sold to the...

    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    Tube ride, I spoke my point, There is no pulling away from my argument. The design of the PP is flawed. Anyone with a bit of common sense could spend a few minutes on google and look at the places I reference, and draw the same conclusion. Like I said I was also in charge of a 500 million dollar...

    Johnny, Bust out a dictionary and look up those two terms. Not sure if you are able so here you go, ""Ignorant" lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about a particular thing." ""Stupid" having or showing a great lack of intelligence or common sense" Not name calling... And you are...

    Johnny, You have passed the ignorant stage into STUPID. Once again,This post is NOT about pressurized fueling. It is about the device being sold to people like you that do not understand the risk of failure of something that is not engineered properly. And because you seem to support Vince, ask...

    Your ignorance in this topic is on great display... With that, I will help you, This is about SAFETY... NOT the speed of the pressure pro. You want to share racing comprehension, I will be glad to buy you a beer and compare how many Class 1 and trophy truck race wins I have crewed for and how...

    There has been a go fund me set up for him. I hope for a speedy recovery.

    At least he is listening to someone. Go look at you pressure pro, if the safety is above 15 psi, the regulatory line in the sand for pressure vessels. If the safety is above 15psi it IS a pressure vessel. Also please look at the regulators and tell me if they are fuel rated. A hard stop is...

    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    When our team purchased these "bombs" I went through all the short comings with Vince and SCORE in private to no avail with the exception SCORE mandating training. If you look at the first post, "These fueling systems are NOT engineered pressure vessels" and " I inspected the regulators that...

    These type of assumptions is why we are here today. Take a minute to look at the rating of tygon tubing. ID 1/2, OD 11/16, wall 3/32, PSI 28 Here is a link. https://www.rhfs.com/assets/pdf/productGuides/How-to-Calculate-Working-Pressures-for-Tygon-Tubing.pdf

    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    The hoop strength is calculating the pressure of a "Hoop" or in this case a cylinder, what you fail to take into this calculation is the sight glass channel.interrupting the hoop and all the strength you have in that calculation. That in fact is why these tanks are dangerous. with a three sided...

    Johnny, apparently your reading comprehension is low, this is not about pit crew ability or speed. But hey, there are always TOOLS in the bunch. Johnny Learn to read... But let me help you again, I DID... Bricoop, You are mistaken, When I was a fueler at INDY many years ago, we were gravity...

    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    Thanks Dave, I am not normally a keyboard warrior, it this particular case our team purchased these things a few years ago and I do not participate in scheduled fuel stops. I brought this exact issue to Vince and SCORE. I have been involved in off racing for 43 years, and I look at the forum...

    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    Ask a few question, Are these certified pressure vessels? Are the welders certified to weld on pressure vessels in the state of California? What is the "working" pressure of these tanks? What is the "burst" pressure of these tanks at 70f and 150f (two temperatures we have used at our power plant...

    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    I few things here, first you don't know if the safety valve was blocked or removed. The safety valve on our PPs have a handle on them putting a wire tie on the handle will NOT defeat the safety based on the way it is manufactured. Your air compressor probably has a rupture disk on the...
