RCS® Rupture Disc
The RCS Rupture Disc is a reverse acting, cross-scored, solid metal rupture disc, providing reliable pressure relief protection, easy installation, and retrofit to your pre-existing piping arrangement. Available in sizes outside the range of the HPX® Rupture Disc product family.
Nominal Size Range: 14" - 32" (350mm - 800mm)
Burst Pressure Range: 20psig - 180psig (1barg - 12barg)
Recommended Operating Ratio: 90% of the rupture disc's rated (stamped) burst pressure.
Seating Configuration: Flat Seat
B.D.I.® Alarm System Compatible?: Yes
ASME Code Symbol Stamp Available? : Yes
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.
Provide protection of piping, rupture discs, and safety relief valves from unwanted foreign material, rain, insects and/or birds by specifying and installing a ENVIRO GUARD pipe end cover. The ENVIRO GUARD pipe end cover is fabricated from a tough PTFE coated/impregnated fiberglass material suitable for use in harsh environments and temperatures up to 500°F (260°C). It is available for 90° or 45° pipe ends and may be purchased with an optional retrieval rope to retain cover near the location after venting.
Heat Shields are typically used to reduce the process temperature to which a rupture disc (bursting disc) is exposed. Heat Shields are used where fluoropolymer or other exotic material liners are required for corrosion resistance or as part of the rupture disc (bursting disc) itself in combination with high process temperature.
