Maximum PSI for stainless steel BBMG?

Unread postAuthor: D-Roc » Wed May 10, 2006 9:51 pm

If I were to make a BBMG cloud out of all stainless steel, what's the maximum PSI for it?...With everything welded super tight. Maybe sleeved with PVC...I always wanted to try 500 PSI..

lets see, i remember, using 100 psi, the cloud chamber only had 10-20 psi in it... math anyone?

well mcmaster is no help when it comes to stainless steel pipe... i'd say it should be fine depending on the thickness of the pipe and your welds

Question-Are you sleaving the steel with PVC? If so, kinda reduntent, steel will allways be stronger then plastic. Provided the steel is not compramized in any way.

i had a similar idea, and when telling it to spudinator, he said it should be fine with unregged CO2, but i should use brass instead due to its higher tensile strength
