This next year (2012) will be my 6th year, and I am planning on building some flame cannons.
In the past I have built some smaller cannons that shoot 5-8' flames, but they never quite act how I want them to.
I have used old solenoid valves that I had laying around that always leaked a little and I never got the pressure I wanted to get those GIANT blasts that you see out there on the playa.
So here are my questions:
What solenoid valve should I use (hook me up with a McMasterCarr link or something)?
What size pipes should I use?
What volume accumulator should I use?
What pressure should I build the accumulator up to before releasing the propane?
And are there any other good tips or tricks you have for me?
Thank you so much for your help!
Also, I have been searching through ePlaya for quite a while now looking for my answers, if this topic is fully covered somewhere else, please forgive me and perhaps post a link to the thread?
