Could be an interesting question... regarding explosive containment

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Apologies for banging in a question on my first post, but I am at a loss with my research.

 

 

I am a designer, and am looking at using a ceramic tube as a pressure vessel. This vessel will be pressurised to 5000psi (~340bar). I need to place this ceramic within another material that will contain it in the chance that the ceramic fails catastrophically.

 

I cannot use metals as they are conductive. Originally I have looked at another ceramic tube lined with ptfe (teflon). This worked 2 in 3 times, I need something more fail safe however.

 

 

Hoping someone can help,

At 100°C, aramide (Para or Meta), like in bullet-proof jackets. Maybe Liquid Crystal Polymers, I don't remember what temperature they accept.

 

More constraints, like transparent?

OK, more information required....

 

How large is the pressure vessel?

 

When you say 100 C, is that the ambient temperature of the environment or just what's inside the pressure vessel?

 

Budget?

 

What are we trying to protect? IE, what's right next to the pressure vessel? People? Equipment?

 

Why can't it be conductive?
