High pressure rated materials.

Unread postAuthor: warhead052 » Thu Jun 02, 2011 10:56 am

I would like to know what would be the best materials for a high pressure coax, with a T inside so I can load ammo directly into the chamber. By high pressure, I mean close to 200 psi since thats what I have available to me till I get my fridge compressor running. I was thinking 3/4" pvc, with a 1/4" barrel? Not sure if it would even work, but it would be worth trying.

the best would be titanium probably not but what the heck its expensive as fork


but for real if you are going to up the pressure ever, i would go with galvinized steel/brass pipe and fittings or copper pipe and soldering.

pvc might have working pressures well above 200psi but the failure mode is really bad and thats why its not use much passed 150psi
