What is Pressurised about?

Top 10 Pressurised facts that will blow your mind.

  1. About saturation diving. Divers working on deep-sea infrastructure such as oil pipelines live in a pressurised chamber for a month, taken between the chamber and their worksite by a pressurised diving bell. That way, they only need to be decompressed once, at the end of each 28-day job.

  2. "Greek fire" was an effective incendiary weapon used by the Romans, which could not be put out by water. It was often used in naval battles, where it was fired via pressurised nozzles. The secrets of its production were closely guarded, and its composition remains unknown today.

  3. Above 19,200m (63,100ft) above sea level, the body hits the Armstrong limit. At this point you'll suffocate to death no matter how much air you inhale because the liquid wetting your lungs to let you breathe will boil away at body temperature, and is a major reason for pressurised suits.

  4. If a submarine is downed and there is no submarine rescue vehicle nearby, the crew put on special pressurised suits which float them to the top and act as a one man life raft.

  5. The safe operating altitude for a hard drive is usually 3000 meters (~10,000 feet) above which specially sealed and pressurised disks should be used. Above 12,000 meters (~40,000 feet) a normal desktop hard drive will completely fail to operate.

  6. Some WW2 steam powered battleships were "turbo charged" by pressurising the boiler rooms and everyone working in them [Chris Barrie's Massive Engines]

  7. The London clay north of the Thames is an ideal medium for tunnels, almost waterproof (no seepage) and pressurised with long stand-up time, which is why the London Underground tube network expanded north of the River Thames and not south (where tube level is water-bearing sand and gravel)

  8. There is a nuclear reactor type that produces less waste, can't melt-down and uses more viable fuel than a traditional Pressurised Water Reactor

  9. Humans may be able to survive up to 3 minutes in space without a pressurised suit.
