Reserve Bulk Oxygen Relief Valves

     I have a relief valve on a reserve bulk oxygen that's relieving at 200 psi and the relief valve is rated for 300 psi. 

     

     Is this of any concern or should I replace the relief valve?


     It only happens during the filling when the driver inadvertently increases the pressure.

    What is the pressure rating of the vessel?  I thought most of them were 250 psi.

     Someone like Bob might know but it came from chart with the relief valves set at 300.
