Rupture disks, also known as burst plugs or soft plugs, are used for emergency pressure relief of an extruder.
They are designed to instantaneously rupture at a specific pressure.
This provides reliable relief in applications where rapid pressure buildup can occur, protecting both personnel and equipment.
For maximum life, the recommended pressure rating is >=1.4 times normal operating pressure.
Do not exceed the high-pressure specification.
A rupture disc or bursting disc is a non-reclosing pressure relief device that protects a pressure vessel, equipment or system from overpressurization or potentially damaging vacuum conditions. A rupture disc is a type of sacrificial part because it has a one-time-use membrane that fails at a predetermined differential pressure, either positive or vacuum.
