Abstract : Pressure tight connections have proven quite successful for underwater circuitry at pressures up to 10,000 PSI and occasional applications to 20,000 PSI. Construction of portable connectors for pressures to 5000 PSI is simple, as long as they are free of voids; while above this pressure, reinforcement of metallic components is necessary. Receptacles require internal reinforcement above 1000 PSI and complete redesign is required above 3000 PSI. Rubber to metal bonding techniques using the best commercially available currents are necessary to prevent small leaks and objectionable rubber displacement. (Author)
