The only reason that pressure isn't recommended with those is that there isn't a pressure relief valve. Also the blowoff/bev out is connected with just hose, so.

Otherwise there is no reason.

I chose not to have a PRV welded onto the 4" cap on my Synergy keg (because they are 130 PSI rated for cornies) and instead chose to have an appropriate 60 PSI (the rating for kegs) put on in the gas line right before the ball lock QD.

It's only there in case the one on the regulator fails and also to purge keg pressure when needed. I think you could rig one of those brewershardware ones like I did and it would pressurize just fine (and safely) but that's just my opinion.

So, for 15 Gal Stainless, we have:

~$150+/- for Brewers Hardware Sanke Converter and keg
~$200 for 15 Gal Corny - no bottom dump, fully pressurizable
~$410 for 14.5 Gal Chinese imported stainless w/ Tri-Clamps
~$450 for 15 Gal Sanke convertion with bottom dump, fully pressurizable
~$700 for 14.5 Gal Fancy Pants Conical Fermenters from whoever and more $ for tri-clamps and casters. Not pressurizable except to racking pressures (3 or 4 PSI).
