The TUXING filter is a different system than what I reviewed. Its an in-line filter between air source and airgun. It doesn't have a moisture drain, for instance. And apparently it has had problems in more than just the above instance. There's quite a lengthy discussion on a different incident at Airgun Nation... At least some of it blaming the Chinese compressor for not having a moisture condensation system.

In the Airgun Nation instance, it appears the plastic filter tube ruptured inside the exterior aluminum casing.
In YOUR instance the exterior aluminum casing ruptured... Circumstances not given.
I don't think they came to any conclusions on the exact cause in either incident... But again it isn't the same thing as what I reviewed.
The 2-tube system I configured and reviewed here is quite different from the TUXING Tube (above). It's almost identical functionally to the filter tubes on Coltri Sub and MaxAir35 IMHO. It all looks well made and well thought out but aside from that, there's no way to know if the aluminum its made from is bad and might rupture. When you buy a Scuba compressor filter system from ANY source, you assume it is made to function safely in the application for which it is sold. To say, "Well, I have one and it didn't blow up in my face" is to deny your up front assumption that it isn't supposed to blow up in your face. If that's what you are testing, you should be using a hydrostatic testing facility. And maybe that's what is needed to be certain they are safe. Are other systems Hydro Test certified? I haven't seen that if they are. The 2-Tube system I reviewed was rated for 4500 psi.
I have to say, the initial attraction to the Chinese filters was price. But in my case, I think the original cost was about $200 for the 2-tube set. Then, I spent a fair amount of time and money experimenting with connecting hardware to adapt it to my compressor. And then, I had to come up with a modified filter housing so I can change filter media. Bottom line in time and money, I probably have around $400+ into getting it all up and running. And frankly, you can buy a lot of confidence in a different system for that kind of money... Compressor Stuff, Jim Shelden, American Airworks... Those guys can come awfully close to the same overall cost with non-Chinese filter systems.
