Questions for my semi advanced combustion.

Post questions and info about combustion (flammable vapor) powered cannons here. This includes discussion about fuels, ratios, ignition systems, safety, and anything else relevant.

With a good fan and a good mix, that should produce a good (and loud) shot.

My combustion is considerably smaller than those specs (2"dia X 10" chamber, 1"dia X 30" barrel). One thing I do is leave the fan ON while I fire. I don't know what kind of effects it will have on your larger cannon but with mine, I can tell a difference in the shots with it on and off.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

Really for a combustion it's not going to matter if you use PVC or ABS. Even most "advanced" combustions don't generate enough pressure to cause problems for PVC or ABS. ABS is lighter and usually easier to find fittings for. They both have their pros and cons and everyone here has their own preference for the materials they use, but I wouldn't say one is "better" than the other. I personally use PVC.

my father is industrial engineer and he toldme to use hidraulick pvc is better (for higth persure water) i ued it is a litle expensiver than common pvc but i havent any problem whits this and i use a piezo ignither too
other thing ..if youi use two 9 volts(18 volt) for a 12v you probably wil burn it ina few time for overhaeting
use a 9v+2 of 1.5 v in serial conecion (9+3=12)
have fun
