Default Re: Super Isol Question

2.6 MPa is about 400 PSI if I did the conversion right. A 36 ID torus 4.5 inches wide would have an area of about 550 in2. So 400 X 550 gives me 200,000 lbs. 200 fire brick weigh 1600 lbs.... I think you have a safety factor!

( I had the same worry so this motivated me to do the math)
