The short answer is yes. However, you should not charge your cooler to the design pressure as it will be set off by the pressure relief valve. The target pressure for the cooler or any particular pressurized equipment should be set to the project's operating pressure which is usually 10-25% lower than the design pressure. Refer to the below link to an answer regarding working pressure and design pressure.

Hope that helps.
