  • source for polycarbonate/lexan tube

    A friend is looking for polycarbonate/lexan tube.18" diameter .125" wall and 8" to 1' long. If anyone knows where to find this please let me know.

    Unless I'm missing something (not an uncommon occurrence), your diameter will have to be larger than .18" if the wall thickness is .125"

      So is that 0.18" inside diameter (guess it can't be OD if the walls are 0.125") or 18" inside or outside diameter?

        18" i.d. Sorry I did not mention that. No thicker than .125" wall. Being used as a sleeve for a cyclone separator.

          here is a web site that sells large tubing, http://k-mac-plastics.net/polycarbonate-tubes.htm

          Be sure and tell your fiend to be setting down when learns of the price.

            The period belongs to the sentence. The space commonly placed between each sentence was not included. Thus confusion for speed readers.

              Might I recommend PVC or some other non transparant pipe plastic? Such as whatever they use for plastic sewer pipes... or a 5 gallon bucket?

              If it must be transparent, Maybe cut a window outta the 5 gallon bucket and use a hot air gun to form a sheet of acrylic over the hole?

                Thanks for the replies. I showed him the prices of the tube and he is going back to the original plan of having a strip heat formed. I didn't realize how expensive that large tube gets.
