10/32 and LPR

I don't have any exp. with 10/32 air fittings, will it allow enough airflow to a lpr to operate a ram and 3way?

10-32 is usually downstream of the LPR, operating the ram and whatnot. I've never seen it used on the high pressure side of an LPR.

It most likely won't work. Not because of flow reasons, but because the lines on a 10-32 barb fittings (assuming thats what you are talking about) is only meant for LP setups. If you have larger compression fittings, or quick-connect fittings you should be fine as long as the fittings, and line is rating for the air supply.

Ah, well if the fittings are rated for your input pressure, knock yourself out. Just remember not to put a lot of stress on the fittings.

Thanks for the tip Altec, ill probably add something to support the lpr just in case it gets whacked.

If 10-32 male to male is going to be mounted on both sides to large bits of metal then I'd never trust it to hold. Even a small bump will put a lot of leverage on that small a fitting and if you're running the inline reg output pressure of up around 350 to 500psi in there then that isn't really helping either.

However you haven't described what you're doing all that well so if this doesn't apply then I'll just quietly sit back down....

Im going to use the 10-32 fitting to mount a lpr onto the front of an old style sheridan valve. Ill solder a larger-diameter brass ring to the end of the barrel to eliminate the possibility of something getting a 4 inch moment arm on the 10-32 fitting by whacking the lpr on the end and anything else that hits it will only put more or less half the force on the fitting.
