I was looking for one too. I checked with Bryan but he did not have any. I finally found a 4000 rated 3/8" burst disk (for 2400 psi LP tanks) through dive Gear Express. Just ordered it. Mark

If 2400 is good, then 3500 is better:

I have a couple of extra OMS discs marked "5833", if you don't find the ones you are looking for.

I use them on my OMS valves in 2400 psi Faber cylinders because I am not willing to take much chance of losing air in remote locations.
Some folks use two in each valve and call them "burstless discs". I generally don't fill mine beyond what it takes to end up with a good 3000 to 3300 psi when they cool to the water temp, but if the dive doesn't call for it I'm happy with just the 10% overfill. That's very very conservative compared to what many other cave divers are doing.

anyone else looking, you can get them from Jocassee Dive Shop who still has an insane amount of OMS valve parts
