SANITRX HPX® Rupture Disc

The pharmaceutical, biotech, food and beverage industries rely on the high-precision SANITRX HPX rupture disc family – a sanitary rupture disc with the perfect combination of industry-leading performance with ASME BPE, USP Class VI and 3A compliance.

The SANITRX HPX rupture disc is a semicircular, scored, reverse-acting rupture disc, capable of withstanding cycles from full vacuum to 95% of the stamped rating. It is available in 90 or 95% maximum recommended operating ratio.


The versatility of the SANITRX HPX

The SANITRX HPX sanitary rupture disc can be used in a wide range of sanitary and hygienic applications throughout pharmaceutical, biotech, food and beverage facilities. They fit between industry-standard sanitary ferrules, NA-CONNECT flanges or SANITRX HPX fittings.

To optimize service life and rupture disc performance, we manufacture and test each SANITRX HPX rupture disc at your specified compressible or incompressible relief conditions.

Fluoropolymer coating is available for corrosion protection on process or vent sides. Electropolished surface finishes are also available. ASME Code Section VIII, Division 1 compliance available when requested.

ASME BPE Standard

The SANITRX HPX rupture disc family is in compliance with the essential criteria of the ASME BPE standard as follows:

  • CIP and SIP cleanable
  • Withstands temperatures of 130°C where steam sterilization is required
  • Internal surfaces and sanitary fittings meet SF1 (20 Ra microinch) standard surface-finish requirements
  • USP Class VI-certified gaskets are fully traceable, include no animal derivatives and meet other ASME BPE standards
  • Discs and fittings are usually made out of 316L SS material; alternates are available if specified by users
  • Fully traceable materials
  • Fittings are marked and packaged in accordance

The ASME BPE Standard provides requirements applicable to the design of equipment used in the biotech, pharmaceutical and personal care industries, including aspects related to sterility and cleanability, materials of construction, dimensions and tolerances, surface finish, material joining and seals. It applies to components in contact with the product, raw materials or intermediates. Systems that are a critical part of the manufacturing process, such as water for injection (WFI), clean steam, filtration and intermediate storage may also abide by this standard.

Sanitary packaging

The SANITRX HPX rupture disc is shipped in sanitary, nontoxic environmentally friendly packaging.

Benefits include:

  • Plastic packaging eliminates direct contact of the rupture disc with open-cell material, such as cardboard or foam, which can carry contaminants or leave particles on the rupture disc
  • Clear packaging provides visibility of the rupture disc tag, allowing verification of the rupture disc specification without removal from the package
  • Recyclable plastic package and cardboard carton
  • Combined with the vertical tag, the new plastic packaging provides a compact, space-saving container for the rupture disc
