Abstract : A safety device for discharging high voltage circuits operated in pressurized containers. The device is positioned 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.
