SANITRX LP® Rupture Disc

SANITRX LP® Rupture Disc


For applications that require lower pressures with reduced flow resistance, Continental Disc offers the SANITRX LP® Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc). This  rupture disc (bursting disc) was designed specifically to provide the same features as the original SANITRX® Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc), but with the added benefit of lower available burst pressures.

Plus, through the benefit of using our on-site ASME Accepted Flow Test Laboratory, the SANITRX LP® Rupture Disc (Bursting Disc) has been designed to have one of the lowest KR flow resistance factors available in a rupture disc (bursting disc) of any design - from any manufacturer.

B.D.I. (Burst Disc Indicator)

The B.D.I.® (Burst Disc Indicator) Alarm System is designed for use with Continental Disc rupture discs. The B.D.I.® Alarm System signals the system operator when a rupture disc has burst to relieve an overpressure or vacuum condition.

MBC™ Multiple Bolt Sanitary Closure

The multi-bolt clamp design features four stainless steel bolts and nuts securing a two-piece, cast stainless steel body. This sturdy clamp yields the ultimate in connection integrity, providing a dependable, sure-hold for system fittings and components. An opposed multi-bolt pattern, utilizing four bolts, ensures reliable performance and safeguards your system and personnel from possible damage that could result from the failure and release of a clamp relying on only one or two fasteners. The clamp permits installation of the SANITRX HPX Rupture Disc product family, which feature the innovative, attached 3-dimensional flow tag extending beyond the assembly for easy identification of proper rupture disc orientation.
