Product Description

A bursting disc, also known as a rupture disc is an ‘engineered weak spot’ in a pressurised system which will burst at a predetermined pressure and temperature. It functions in a manner similar to the way a fuse functions in an electrical system. A bursting disc is used as a non-reclosing, fail-safe element to protect a system from overpressure damage or imploding due to excessive positive or vacuum pressures in liquid or gaseous systems.

See the PDF for details on Over pressure solutions for a wide spectrum of power transmission and distribution applications.
