well im ok with not haveing push to connect fittings because its just for a compressor hose. and the hose i am going to get is a 950psi nylon version of the larger hose your talking about. i can get 25ft of it for only $8 so i think its pretty good

I am sure there are push to connect fittings rated that high available in the US... the only problem is to find them

you would have to find a good way of connecting them as they are tough and rather rigid... I guess you can try compression fittings for copper tubes

poland, i am going to use compression fittings for nylon tubing. the tube and the fittings are made for each other so i know it will work. and if im not gonna be doing setups like yours so i dont need to be able to take it apart and put it back together

elite, i have taken it up to 600 but the only reason i stopped is becasue of my gauge. onece i get my new one i will test up to 750psi

thats the pump i have. and 600psi depends on alot of things, what inlet pressure, what volume. so i can not answer that question yet

(not posted in a while) i found somtimes you get a gud one thta will go althe way up to 1000psi but some struggle to get to 600 i think it depends alot on the condition and the compresion ration ie dead space ontop of the piston.

yes i am very sure. what you looked at was a fridge compressor. this is a air conditioner compressor and these generly are rotary compressors and fill the shell with the pressureised air. i have also taken apart a broken fridge compressor and it was just like you described so i know what your talking about
