what to do with air tank

Unread postAuthor: pat123 » Sat Apr 12, 2008 12:02 am

After getting off the regulator I am trying to decide what to do with this tank. It has a max psi of 2000. I am thinking about using it as a hybrid chamber. do you think I can go to 10X.

If you don't want it, I'll take it off your hands. And those tanks are preety thick. I'd say you could definetly do a 10x.

Oh so a very large tank
That small porting will be an annoyence as it will really constrict flow no matter what you do.
I dont think it would be worth it to make a hybrid out of it because the power would be so limited. So I say you make a simple burst disk high pressure pnuematic.
But most people would say to make a piston valve instead.

Make a quick and easy pneumatic plinker, screw a sprinkler valve rite on there and fire away.

I think you should make a high pressure pneumatic burst disc, since the tank has a high rating. If you made it a sprinkler valve gun it wouldn't be using this thing to it's full potential.

Unless you got an all metal sprinkler valve that can handle high pressures.
