The explanation given of the cause of the explosion which caused two deaths at the factory of BKL Alloys Ltd, of Kings Norton, which was given at the inquest yesterday in Birmingham, was that the temperature of air inside the drum on which the man was resting his welding apparatus rose until the pressure burst the drum along its seam.
Typically these may include microscopic hearing aid baffles, in-line gas/fluid flow regulators, micro-size laboratory tools, discs for in-line capacitive gas analysis, inline pressure burst discs, radial/linear encoder disks, drip regulators and individual stent parts.
While a water filled bore may be tolerable in some handguns, it will certainly produce a pressure burst in a long arm.

Good opportunities are anticipated for water distribution in light of the increasing age of existing systems and frequent problems with infiltration, exfiltration and pressure bursts.
In carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness and smoke inhalation, the added oxygen returns the mix of blood gases to normal; whereas in an air or gas embolism the higher pressure bursts the bubble obstructing a blood vessel and normal blood flow is restored.
Data from the tool allows the Resist-Torr to look at degas conditions and wafer temperature, eliminate noise due to other pressure bursts, and relate wafer numbers and lot IDs to the data collected.
