Barrel Fan

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Tue Apr 11, 2006 6:28 pm

Would'nt it be a lot easier to install a fan onto the barrel end of the chamber? Instead of opening the back to fuel and vent it, just vent/fuel through the screw off barrel, I mean, you're already unscrewing the barrel to load why not vent there too? This would be especially useful for propane guns. Tell me if it's possible.

don't see why not, but since the flame is headed that way the fan might not hold up long

very nice thinking, but i know of 3 problems you face

first, you need at least 2 openings to vent
second, a fand there would seriously reduce performance
third, good luck keeping the fan together after subjecting it to huge pressure spike... wel, unless your ignitions is frontwards, which is really bad for overall performance.

Is a chamber fan good for anything besides venting?? ive heard its good for larger sized chambers, my combustin chamber is about 14 inches long with a 4 inch diameter is a chamber fan worth the effort?? would it improve my performance at all?

it mixes the air with the fuel, thus giving you a more even and more powerful explosions, thus more power
