Stainless chamber for ??

Unread postAuthor: Carlman » Tue Apr 21, 2009 10:19 am

Hey guys, my latest find from the brings up a stainless steel chamber with 4 1/4" ports. (see pics below)

It was used in some sort of steam application.

I belive it was a small boiler.

I have no idea what to use it for lol

Looks like nice piece of junk Carlman! :P

I'd say add oxygen in one port, propane in the other, and a blow forward bolt on the front.
You could design the BFB with a spring to compress to the point just before the loader tube opens from the blocker pin to close a switch activating a stun-gun (or other spark).

And if you could build a gas port like a firearm gas assist bolt near the end of the muzzle, only instead of unlocking the bolt (as it's use in auto firearms) It would open a valve to vent the inert or spent gasses from the chamber.
IDK that's what I'm thinking... :wink: 8)

BTW, I recently had a side job removing an old giant boiler from a basement of apartments...The various fittings brought all sorts of things to mind.
Course everything had to be scrapped including a lot of copper.
I did [obtain] an interesting piece that inspired my BFB design I am solely focused on now though!!! :D 8)

EDIT:COOL VID Play it loud (?)

With 4 ports, could this be a heat exchanger? Do all 4 ports connect to the same space? I've seen chilled water cooling units use a heat exchanger much like that. 2 ports are for freon and the other 2 for process cooling water, for example cooling a CO2 cutting laser.

Start pushing air through the ports and see what holes it comes out of. That will tell you if it is tubed for the heat exchanger usage. If you push air in one and it comes out all the holes, I say Mini Hybird, half the chamber work is all ready done! :cheers:
