Abstract : An enclosure for sealing components is sealed by a tubulation member having a narrowed cross-sectional width in one dimension. The narrowed dimension serves to minimize stresses at the tubulation interface when the enclosure is sealed by pinching the tubulation member. This allows a large tubulation member to be used and pinched-off closer than possible with a rounded tube. (Author)
