Rupture Disks reach operating pressures of 95%.
August 14, 2007 -
Suited for process plants requiring optimal operating pressure in gas or liquid service, SIGMA EXL(TM) and SIGMA(TM) Reverse Buckling Rupture Disks feature SAF(TM) Technology to accommodate range of burst pressures. Design minimizes fatigue on rupture disk, optimizing plant uptime. Pre-torqued SRB-7RS Safety Holder allows disk to be removed and inspected without having to re-torque, while circular score causes rupture disk to burst without fragmentation.

BS&B Safety Systems, L.L.C., Equips Process Plants with Capabilities to Reach Operating Pressures of 95% of Marked Burst Pressure from Rupture Disks
TULSA, Okla - July 30, 2007 - For process plants requiring the highest operating pressure in gas or liquid service, BS&B Safety Systems L.L.C. offers the SIGMA EXL(TM) and SIGMA(TM) Reverse Buckling Rupture Disk.
The SIGMA Series is capable of reaching operating pressures of up to 95-percent making it an excellent financial choice for any plant requiring increased gas or liquid volume flow through its processes. The increased operating pressures also causes less fatigue on the rupture disk allowing the disks to last longer between replacements and saving on actual plant downtime. Its pre-torqued patented SRB-7RS Safety Holder allows the disk to be removed and inspected without having to re-torque the values. The disk's patented circular score causes the rupture disk to burst without fragmentation.
The SIGMA Series maximizes SAF(TM) Technology, only available from BS&B, that allows the disk to achieve a wide-range of burst pressures with great accuracy. The SAF Technology provides a damage safety ratio of less than or equal to 1, ensuring that an inadvertently damaged disk will rupture at or below its marked burst pressure. The rupture disks are available in a variety of sizes with many choices of corrosion resistant materials. Each SIGMA EXL and SIGMA is shipped with certification validating its maximum recommended operating pressure.
About Rupture Disks
Rupture disks are non-reclosing pressure relief devices that completely seal process fluid or gas from the atmosphere. When excessive pressure occurs, the disks immediately open and protect systems from the hazards of overpressure.
