Haha, yeah, my excuse everytime i go to bunnings is: "I'm making a pneumatic hand which has the power to crush an empty coke can..."

And i usually get the response " Wow!, well you will have to bring it in and show us one day..."

Just say that you need a QEV with high flow.
Im postive that they make QEV's. Im just not sure if it are high flow ones.

Sure they do... I just posted a link to the datasheet of the two models that they offer

It seems their flow is a bit lower when compared with the more common type of QEVs

EDIT
compare the two

http://www.boschrexroth.com/pneumatics- ... eID=p31430

I am almost sure that the flow was measured using the same method, that is:
Nominal flow Qn at 6 bar and Δp = 1 bar

I know for a fact they make them, but I've only seen the diaphragm type.

I also expect they don't even have a shop there.
The head office is...well...an office.

In Europe Fetso only sells through resellers..

I have seen reports by radio-controlled-boat-builders...don't know what else to call them, those guys that build bb guns on 'em ( for modelboat "wars") keep breaking festo QEVs at around 16 bar and up.

So keep it below 200 psi.The diaphragm ruptures.

They are high quality, very sensitive, but compared to our standards, fragile.
Not meant to be abused for "science".

Did I mention they tend to be pricey?

heh quite possible... most of their stuff is rated to 8 or 10 bar max... it's perfectly ok with most users since industrial pneumatic systems rarely use more than 10 bar
