Bursting Discs (Rupture Discs)

..... In a nutshell


A bursting disc, rupture disc or burst panel is a section of material which is engineered to fail at a very specific pressure.



Unlike a relief valve, a bursting disc has no moving parts and is 100% leak proof. Using bursting discs can also be a very cost effective way isolating components from a process which allows more freedom in material selection for costly components.



Car airbag systems, Whisky distilleries, Aircraft tyres, Firefighting Systems, Pharmceutical production and anywhere where instant, accurate pressure relief is required.
