35494Re: [MILL_DRILL] Acetal pressure rating
- Feb 26, 2014I think I'll just over-design. About 1/4" ID, 50psi, glycol/water mix (heavy on the glycol), room temperature.

One might be able to figure it if there are some known values. Whats the operating temperature, whats the outside diameter of the fitting, whats the medium (oil, water, air. etc.) and what the max pressure anticipated and what flow do you need to maintain? Then you can figure the tensile strength (PSI) of the acetyl and use a reverse Barlow formula of sorts determine what wall thickness one would need to work within the parameters and a given safety factor. Just a thought.
