Subject:
vacuum chamber

Bill Hale / The Wood Spinner
>I want to build a 24" vacuum chamber. I am thinking that a 24" dia. x 24" long flanged steel pipe fitting with end caps may work. My question is will it stand a 28 " vacuum? Every one knows about pressure but not vacuum. I have no idea where or how to get info on this.
Are there any engineers out there that can help me on this? Any other ideas will also be appreciated.
