Abstract : A safety device for discharging high voltage circuits operated in pressurized containers. The device is positioned within an elbow or other protrusion through which passes the high voltage feed-through electrode. In one embodiment the grounding contact is automatically forced against the high voltage contact by the expansion of a bellows upon decompression of the container while in an alternate embodiment, the grounding contact is manually threaded against the high voltage contact.
