      The pressure rating of the door would match that of the tank. So better check the tank rating, it's probably too low. The back seating lid, indicates a higher pressure rating for the vessel. So this front seating type, is not a mistake, it's the right design for this tank.

        What he said....

        J Scholb is right. Do NOT try to "fix" this by making the manway stronger. Your modification to make it "stronger" will just make a bomb out of it. Safety first! Do it right and buy a tank that is rated to 1 bar to begin with. Pressure vessels are nothing to toy with; take it from a guy who nearly got himself killed by such a "fixed" tank.
