Clear PVC

Unread postAuthor: meatcarpet » Wed Jun 27, 2007 11:32 pm

I bought some 4" sch.40 PVC and it is pressure rated at 110psi. Im wondering if anyone knows if that is just the standard for clear PVC and if thats enough of a pressure rating for a propane fueled launcher?

as long as its a standard combustion (not a hybrid) the peak pressure should be about 60psi, so your pipe should be just fine. now i dont know if thast the standard rating for clear pvc. i think my normal 4" pipe is rated to 220psi if thats any help to you
