Setting the delay pedal on infinite feedback, can it damage the amp or cab?

If I would set my delay on infinite feedback at a high volume for a long time could it damage my amp or cab?
Or if the amp feeds back for a long time at a high volume could it also do harm to the amp or cab?

1. Not anymore than playing at high volume for a long time would.

2. It depends on what the feedback is being caused by, but I seriously doubt it'd do any real serious damage. If it was to do damage it'd most likely just be wear on the speakers.

Want more specific answers? Ask more specific questions.

Okay more specific , at high volumes when I set the delay on infinite I play something and I let it just run for a while. Then it goes into that phase when it all starts to squeal and then it feeds back on the feedback itself. Could that damage?
I`ve only done it at low volumes. Analog delays sounds cooler the longer it loops.

Or

When I pick up feedback through the guitar pups and let it run, not that it sounds good, but will that cause some damage to the equipment?

Feedback is your amp screaming as it slowly dies.

Nah, it won't hurt it.
