Oseco's PLR is a high performance reverse buckling rupture disc design for very low-pressure applications. The PLR is excellent for gas or liquid applications requiring burst pressures down to 2 PSIG.
Reactors are designed to contain chemical reactions. They may be exothermic or endothermic and can be batch reactors, continuously stirred tank reactors or fluidized bed reactors among others.
Vapor compression chiller technology uses four basic types of compressors - reciprocating, screw driven, scroll and centrifugal. All mechanical machines where over-pressure protection may be necessary.
Rupture discs are often used to isolate the inlet of safety relief valves to protect the valve internals from corrosive processes. ASME Section VIII recognizes the use of rupture discs under Paragraph UG-127.
Heat transfer from one medium to another is widely used in chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, gas processing and power plants and often require specialized over-pressure protection.
Industrial distillation is the most common form of separation technology used in chemical, petro-chemical, refineries, natural gas processing and cryogenic air separation plants. Rupture discs are commonly used as over-pressure protection devices.
A solid safety feature for oil and gas separators includes the installation of a rupture disc and holder. The disc is typically used in conjunction with a safety relief valve as a secondary device to relieve pressure from 1.1 – 1.21 times the MAWP of the vessel.
Cokers or delayed cokers process residual oil stocks by heating it to its thermal cracking temperature in a furnace operation with multiple passes. Due to the number of pumps, separators, and condensers at high temperatures, rupture discs are often employed as a means of over-pressure protection.
