A method and apparatus for securing a heat sink/filter positioned between a pressure vessel and a diffuser in an air bag inflator. The pressure vessel is constructed so that upon activation of the inflator of the area of gas exiting the pressure vessel is smaller than the area of gas exiting the diffuser to create pressures in the pressure vessel that are higher than the pressures in the diffuser. This results in deformation of the pressure vessel that is equal to or greater than the deformation of the diffuser to maintain compression of the heat sink/fi...
1. Apparatus for securing a heat sink/filter in an air bag inflator, comprising: a pressure vessel having a plurality of exit apertures;a diffuser surrounding a portion of the pressure vessel for receiving hot inflation gas from the exit apertures when the inflator is activated;the heat sink/filter being positioned and compressed between and in contact with the pressure vessel and the diffuser prior to activation of the inflator;the pressure vessel being constructed so that upon activation of the inflator the area of gas exiting the pressure vessel is sm...
