Designed for use with ASME and DIN flanges 1”-12” (25mm-300mm) or sanitary applications 1”-4” (25mm-100mm), the BDI-FLX™ Burst Disc Sensor System utilizes a sensor strip with a flexible potentiometer (electrical component that varies resistance in response to deflection) to signal a rupture disc has burst.
BDI-FLX™ Burst Disc Sensor System
The BDI-FLX™ Burst Disc Sensor System is available for gas or liquid applications. For full liquid applications, the BDI-FLX Sensor requires dynamic movement to signal. Slow reversal of the rupture disc, such as with liquid thermal expansion, will not cause the BDI-FLX Sensor to indicate. A small crack in a rupture disc score will not cause the BDI-FLX Sensor to indicate. Note that the BDI-FLX Sensor is designed to indicate within a few milliseconds, so full reversal and full opening of the rupture disc must occur within a few milliseconds. If full liquid flow at set pressure or a gas head will not be present during rupture of disc, contact Continental Disc Corporation for evaluation.
