Purpose of Stainless Steel cover on MPX5999D

I assume the stainless steel cover on the MPX5999D is to protect the internal component of the pressure transducer.  I also assume it has no structural purpose when the transducer is under pressure, is that correct?


I am asking because we would like to add a compatible gel to the transducer before installing the transducer behind a movable diaphragm, and have found that removing the plate makes it easier to add the gel without air being trapped in the assembly.  I am sure that you could not recommend or warrant this process as we are modifying your original assembly, but if you could simply answer the question above it would be helpful to us.
