first coaxial plans

Unread postAuthor: Easterbunny » Wed Jan 02, 2008 1:43 pm

well the pic is pretty self explanatory, but what my plan is to make an small air cannon with a 1.5in barrel and a 3in chamber in a coaxial setup. it will be diaphram valve piloted by a modded sprinkler.all of the internals will be hidden under a larger di tube. i've been showing this to my dad, he doesn't think it will work. i want to hear for you guys wether or not it will work so pls tell me what you think.

well i dont think that will work, because most people make their diaphragm so that it can be replaced but your design makes it permanent and that means that you have to get it right the first time.

Anyway what you are saying is that it wil work the first couple of times until something will happen and he could not do a thing due to it being permanent.
Anyway good lob i think it will work

my suggestion is to use a union to hold the diaphragm in place, and this will also make it serviceable.

A union would be a good option for servicability but a 3" one wouldn't exactly be cheap either.
