    Exclamation 2L rEvo carbon tank explode ?

    I just got 4 carbon tanks 2L for my revo
    I took them to my dive center to fill it up , and the IT surprised me by saying can't fill up the carbon tanks because they explode , and he don't have something to put the carbon tanks in it before filling it ...... I don't know what is that (thing) that he talk about ?? any idea ? do you need to put the carbon tanks in something before filling it or it will explode ?
    or just because he sell , teach and support a different brand of rebreathers so he find an excuse to not fill up my tanks ?
    I will try to fill up the tanks in other shops just want to know does what he says make sense if yes please give name or link to buy that THING

    2L rEvo carbon tank explode ?

    That thing he's talking about is expensive....But I never had any problems filling carbons at any shop, dil and O2 so I think he's just playing extremely safe or just being an ass.
    I always fill my carbons myself... if he's that difficult and there is no other shop around I would just buy a 12 or 15 L steel tank and a fill whip. Let him fill the 15 L and take it home and then you can fill your carbons a few times.

    I've heard of carbon fiber tanks exploding, after they were contaminated with antifreeze which started decomposing the carbon fiber lattice.

    A few years back a fire fighters twin set exploded possibly due to the speed of fill causing the plastic liner of the fibre wrapped cylinders to fail.
