Oh and does anyone know what the approxiamte safety margin on a diapragm QEV is ? I'd imagine it varies a lot, but any feedback would be helpful.
(the valve in question is a 3/4" with a metal body, rated at 175psi, just wondering how far someone has pushed this type of valve?)
What could go wrong with a ballvalve like the one below if used at high pressure (850psi)?
Its a 1/8" mini ballvalve.
I can't think of any failures apart from: leaking, the threads breaking or the body exploding. But I'd imagine much higher pressure would be needed to do so.
People have used regular balvalves to those pressure before (there was even one on JSR's latest full auto prototype), I'd just like to know your thoughts about this one.
