Empire 48/45 tank rattle?
I just bought a brand new 48ci 4500psi tank from my local shop. When I got home I noticed there was a very small amount of air in it (helped for shipping I'm guessing) so I bled it out and then I noticed a strange sound. When I shake it there's a rattling noise from a loose part and it's definitely internal. This is my first 4500psi tank so is this normal? I'm guessing it only makes the noise when it's not under pressure. Any info would help

It is normal most tanks do it, can't remember the actual part that's rattling, but my 13/3k does it too, nothing to worry about

That rattle in the fill nipple is normal. It's the part with the oring that seals the nipple when the tank is filled with air. If the nipple starts leaking, that oring is damaged.
Everybody: Let's ease up on the red loctite, 'kay? Thanks.
