QEV Question

Unread postAuthor: mikehunt042084 » Thu Oct 25, 2012 10:40 am

I'm working on a QEV launcher and I have everything but the flippin valve. I have found thousands of different ones online but almost none of them list opperating pressure, can someone point me to a reliable QEV?

What pressure do you want to work with, and does your area cater for BSP or NPT fittings?

NPT fittings and no more than 150psi, most often lower but never higher as that is toward max safe pressure for some of the fittings I have.

Each of the ports has a letter next to it in the picture of the valve.

No, R is where the barrel goes and A is where the chamber goes.

Awesome thanks for clearing that up for me, I wanted to make sure how it worked (I've never used a QEV before) before I bought it on the off chance it didn't come with any documentation.
