We had air pressure up to 3000 and 4500 PSI, and hydraulic pressure at 3000 PSI.
And at those pressures, things get very dangerous.
An air leak at those pressures can slice a finger right off.
And a hydraulic leak at that pressure turns into a fog that can potentially turn fatal if breathed, or get blasted through the skin into the bloodstream.
Those old injection guns they quit using years ago used 1500 PSI which is much less than these systems.
Hurt like hell too, and if you flinched, would slice you like a scalpel.
I can't imagine how dangerous a fuel system leak at over 7000 PSI would be.
I can only hope the volume is low so the pressure bleeds down quick.
