propane fill question...

Unread postAuthor: THUNDERLORD » Thu Apr 10, 2008 12:45 am

:roll: I have 1" sch 40 pipe rated to 450psi (46"chamber).

I know that propane comes out at around 130-150psi and the can it's stored in (the small ones for torches) is only rated to between 3-400 psi. :idea:

My question is if my valve filling the pipe got stuck open, would it burst the pipe? :?:

Propane is more commenly around 90-120psi, but yeah if the pipe is rated for 450psi, it defintely wont blow at 150psi.

Thanks for replying, MrCrowley.
The reason I want to know is so I can build a test model of what myself and JSR discussed here:
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/solenoi ... 13966.html

I Want to perfect a concept of auto-refill and use solenoid valves controlled electronically.
But I don't really trust my electric switch device.

I call it a thunderswitch.
I would really like to test it out using a cheaper model and by using propane instead of Co2 and using parts I can perfect it for easier.


[/url] BTW that's an awesome video you've got on youtube w/ the golfballs .

Oh okay, well 150psi should be perfectly fine in that chamber.

Thanks, looking forward to one from you :)
