This report gives an account of tests of pressure guard and shovel function for Torpedo 62 at launching with start of propellant. During the tests, even other functions were registered, such as tube pressure and 3 D acceleration. Two tests each were performed for the prototype pressure guard from Sanoy as well as for the serial pressure guard from Eaton. The one from Sanoy showed satisfying functionality, while the one from Eaton showed an unsatisfying performance.
