Tension Type

Tension type rupture discs (bursting discs) are oriented in a system with the process media pressure against the concave side of the rupture disc. As the process pressure increases beyond the allowable operating pressure, the tensile strength of the material is reached and rupture occurs.

Continental Disc Corporation's Standard Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) is a solid metal, differential pressure relief device that provides instantaneous overpressure protection for systems, equipment, and vessels.

The Standard Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) provides a full-opening design that responds within milliseconds to potentially damaging overpressure accumulation, permitting its use in a variety of protection applications.


The Composite Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) for a 7I holder has a 30° Seat configuration and consists of two or more metallic or non-metallic components. The components typically consist of a metallic top section and metallic or non-metallic seal, with an optional vacuum support, protective rings, gaskets or outlet liner.

The Composite Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) top section is manufactured with a patented seven hole pattern, and with six pre-cut sections providing a non-fragmenting design when used with a non-metallic or fluoropolymer seal.

The Composite Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) for a UNISERT Holder has a flat seat configuration and consists of two or more metallic or non-metallic components. The components typically consist of a metallic top section and metallic or non-metallic seal, with an optional vacuum support, protective rings, gaskets or outlet liner.

The Composite Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) top section is manufactured with a patented seven hole pattern, and with six pre-cut sections providing a non-fragmenting design when used with a non-metallic or fluoropolymer seal.

The MICRO X® Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) is a flat seat cross-scored, tension-type rupture disc (bursting disc), and designed to provide a full, non-fragmenting, four petal opening pattern. Because the MICRO X® Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) is scored on the outlet (vent) side of the rupture disc (bursting disc), a smooth disc surface is provided on the inlet (process side) of the rupture disc (bursting disc). The result is an undisturbed inlet surface resistant to corrosion and the accumulation of process media.

The ENVIRO-SEAL Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) is designed to provide economical protection for low pressure atmospheric storage vessels and to isolate the downstream side of pressure relief valves and other equipment from corrosive environments.

The Tanksert Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) was designed exclusively for railroad tank car overpressure protection, and to conform with ICC regulations. The Tanksert Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) is a Composite Type, with a flat seat sealing configuration.

The Continental ICON Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) is a cross scored, solid metal rupture disc (bursting disc) specifically designed to protect transportation vessels like intermodal tank containers, railroad portable containers, tank cars, over-the-road tank trucks and other vessels that transport liquids or gas products, from potentially damaging overpressure conditions.

The ICON™ rupture discs (bursting discs) are ideal for installation beneath pressure relief valves due to its non-fragmenting design. The ICON™ Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) is designed for installation on tanks meeting the requirements of ADR, US DOT, DOT Blue Book, IMCO, ISO, and RID.

Continental Disc Corporation's impervious graphite rupture discs (bursting discs) are simple, reliable overpressure relief devices designed to protect processing systems, truck tanks, storage tanks, and closed processing vessels from overpressure conditions. The impregnated graphite construction makes these rupture discs (bursting discs) ideal in most corrosive environments.
