Brass pipe help

Unread postAuthor: potatoflinger » Mon May 28, 2007 7:54 pm

I know that this is probably a stupid question, but for a new project that I am working on, I am going to have to use brass pipe (the kind that is supposed to be used as a pipe nipple) and I was wondering what kind of pressure I could use this pipe at. The pipe will probably range in diameter from 1'' to 1/4''.
Again, I know this is a stupid question, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most of the small (<1") brass I've seen is rated to at least 250psi. The valve will probably be rated for less than the pipe.

Exactly what application are we talking about?

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

Sorry, I should have explained what I was going to use it for a little better. The pipe is for a small paintball gun, and the air compressor that I have will only go up to 100 psi, so that will be the max. pressure. The gun will probably be about the size of a real paintball gun or smaller.
