It would be interesting to see how it blows. Please attach a very short piece of barrel, with an end cap on it.
This way you can see which part fails the first. It would be awesome if you could record it on a hi-speed camera.


I'd love to see an 150x oxy/propane mix going boom, recorded on more then 3000 frames per second. :D

I don't think it will solve anything...the caps will probably blow off and what will that prove.
Each piece of pipe is different, and one can't make a truthful statement based off of one inconclusive test.
A proper testing chamber would probably have to be welded by a certified pipe welder(which I will be certified in btw by next june) and have several tests done.


Oh come on.... He is just having a little fun, and getting some insight at the same time. Give it a rest.

PCGUY was meaning the checkbox just under the reply section that you tick to recieve emails that theres new posts ^^

I never tick it personally, I end up with gazillions of emails when I get round to my monthly email account visits.


Should be interesting, may even turn out that it won't burst. Stay safe all the same :)

Oh I have no doubt in my mind that it would be badass and on some levels informative on hybrids, I'm just hinting at that some more tests on the subject would be nice
