Cyclone feed hose pressure

Does anyone know the pressure of the hose on the cyclone feed? Working on a custom box magazine using one and need to longer hose and I found one on Amazon but need to know the pressure to see if it will work. Any info or advice would be very helpful.

When I made some custom high flow cyclone and RT setups with larger diameter hoses the stuff I got was 100psi rated, never had an issue.

With the barb fittings you're more likely to push the hose off the barb than actually pop the hose.

That makes sense compared with TKs old data on AO that said the peak pressures behind the ball in various markers was between 60 and 100 psi.

Since the cyclone is a vent from the valve exhaust, the diameter and length of the hose and the fittings will have a lot of effect on the total flow.

Thanks for the info, very helpful. The hose I'm looking at says in the title it's rated for 60 psi but the description says it's for heavy duty pressure connections so would you guys think it would work?

That looks like soft silicone 1/4" tubing. It shouldn't be a complete fail, but I would expect more pop-offs; and it is a bit fat.

I was thinking more like one of these...

ASP Online Store: Microline Hose

ASP Online Store: Beswick LP tubing

Looks like you may be in cAnAdA, eh?

Hopefully it will work and if not might have to look into those, however I'm using 1/8 I'd line so not sure if those would work. And yes definitely freezing up in Canada right lol

Just buy a foot of cocker hose and be done with it. It's exactly the same stuff Tippmann uses.

Cocker hose is 1/16" ID, he needs 1/8" ID.

Clippard makes some, but you'd need to buy a very big roll of it... the biggest stuff ASP sells will fit over 1/8" hose fittings fairly well.

Well, we need to get that off FB and onto the real internet.

You on computer or phone?
