Slide check?

Unread postAuthor: Dave_424 » Wed Feb 04, 2009 10:22 am

Just a quick question, would a 1/8" slide check rated to 16 BAR take unregged co2?

Would I be better off getting one for paintball, would it have enough flow when exhausting to pilot a 1/8" QEV?

16 bar is around 230 psi

"unregged" co2 is depending on the temp around 700-900

you should be able to find one for what you need on mcmaster.

if it's only rated for 16 bar, then no it would not take unregged co2 as unregged co2 is around 850 psi.

yes a paintball one would better cause it will handle the pressure, it would have same flow rate as the other one.

where did you find a QEV that will take 850 psi ?

regular QEV's (The cylindrical) ones have been tested in 1/2" regularly up to 850 psi

a 1/4" or 1/8" one would withstand more
