6" ABS

Unread postAuthor: cannon freak » Mon Jul 03, 2006 4:35 pm

Has anyone ever used 6" ABS in a propane injected combustion cannon, I know that ABS is ok for use in combustion, however, the larger diamiter pipe has me a little concerned.

Your concern is good I'm not sure if I would trust 6" ABS but at least it doesn't shatter like PVC.

How long ago did you make it? lol

All the Stags are propane injected ABS and they are all fine, but I'm not sure if 6" would be safe...

Well I guess I will not use the 6in pipe then. I am going to be using 4in ABS in a dual chanbered gun though, it should stand up fairly well, and if it doesn't no big deal I won't be really close when it goes off, and ABS only rips and does not exsplode, and its a pretty cheap gun since the ABS pipe and fittings are really cheap. Id use PVC but its really exspensive and I have to buy 10 foot lengths of any size I want.

On a second note I may buy a small section of 6in ABS pipe and make a small chamber like 6in long and test it like a 100 times to see if it will stand up to the stress or not.
