The report describes a method used to provide a 2150 psi nitrogen storage system that retains operational pressure for a minimum period of three years without interim servicing. A hermetic tank seal and a squib operated release mechanism were developed for this purpose. The release mechanism utilizes a notched release tube that, when impacted by a squib operated piston, ruptures providing a contamination free path to a pressure regulator. Emphasis was given to methods that would permit retrofit of an existing storage system. Author
