Use the Installation Instruction sheet supplied with your rupture discs. Each installation instruction was written specifically for a particular rupture disc design, and describes the installation procedures in detail to minimize the chance of improper installation.
Other Continental Disc Corporation features that minimize error include:
- The Three-Dimensional Flow Direction Tag attached to most rupture disc designs, and provides instant visual verification that the rupture disc has been correctly oriented into the system.
- Alignment pins on some rupture disc holders mate with holes in the rupture disc. These pins provide positive alignment and assure the rupture disc is correctly oriented in the holder.
- A J-Hook, welded to the rupture disc holder inlet, provides easy alignment and proper orientation relative to the flow direction. Plus, stainless steel tags, attached to the holder inlet and outlet, specify the proper flow direction.
- The best method to prevent installation problems is education in proper installation techniques. Contact Continental Disc Corporation's Corporate Headquarters or your representative to learn more about proper techniques or to sign up for a technical seminar.
