what is the maximum allowable air pressure for this tank? I want to hook it up in tandem with another compressor and do not want to exceed the max rating.

Max pressure of XER 6408

Technically, zero - because it's so old.

If there's a PRV on it, that's usually 5-10 PSI over working pressure.

But what I've done is put a long hose on it, and pump it up remotely - see if it does anything scary. And if you can suspend it, and get it to ring when you tap it, that's a good sign.

But really you should get it static pressure tested. But a new tank might be cheaper...

Stay safe.
