Vortex resurrection issues

Unread postAuthor: saefroch » Mon May 10, 2010 6:15 pm

Yeah, resurrecting something that was never alive is an issue in of itself, but for here it's a figure of speech. I am thinking of reviving my pre-spudfiles-memebership vortex, but now that I am a member of spudfiles I will be avoiding ghetto builds, so that means everything needs reconstructing. Which means I am not using plastic valves and superglue on rubber. Or hot glue to hold together a wooden vortex block. So... the point: I am looking to operate a vortex at pressures in excess of 200 psi. The schrader valves on McMaster are rated to 200 psi, but I should be able to protect those (I hope). The blowgun valves are only rated to 200 psi as well, which is an issue because I need that to deal with all the pressure. I know rating is not failure level, but this has me somewhat concerned, I don't want my valve malfunctioning because I've maltreated it.

Suggestions? Help? Comments?

I purchased a push button valve from McMaster and it has worked fine up to ~800. It is unbalanced though so it gets pretty tough to pull at high pressure.

That could be an issue... I'll look into it though.
