Today I induced failure in said poor abused QEV. Diaphragm returned to the usual shape, bar some deformation.

What am I looking at, was the diaphragm sucked into the seat? At what pressure did it happen?

In other news I received my pump, looks pretty well made for the price. I haven't gotten round to testing it though.

Yep, solid centre part totally entered the seat, only stopped by the cone seal. Approximately 3500psi. I installed a plug in the chamber port of the QEV to minimise the potential destructive effect. Though speaking of destruction, I have ruined two schrader valve cores and a ball valve so far, this HPA jazz is certainly more fun than I expected. Need to buy some more needle valves

Incidentally, my male quick connect has a schrader valve thread on it. It isn't a coincidentally similar thread, it's a perfect fit.

Same! I took the opportunity to try it with my airsoft pen gun, took it to 500 psi in 2 strokes!

Very happy with it so far, apparently it already has a sealed liquid jack for cooling purposes. Time will tell how well it holds up but my first impressions were very good, especially for the price.

Former lab equipment? Last I saw that type of anodizing was on an FT-IR Spectrometer...
