A rupture disc is a safety device that has a defined breaking point used to protect a system from overpressure. When the predefined breaking point is reached, the rupture disc bursts and the system is shut down to prevent any further damage or unsafe conditions.
Rupture discs are single-use equipment. They are simple and low-cost safety measures that can be combined with pressure relief valves and used in a wide array of applications. Because they are single use, they require replacement before the system can be restarted.
As an end user, you should be concerned with two important factors: The discs you choose should be manufactured to exact specifications and you should have an expert on call if anything were to happen. The combination of high-quality Continental rupture discs and knowledgeable, factory-trained engineers from Pioneer Industrial provide you with the total value you need to operate with complete peace of mind.
