SANITRX HPX® II Rupture Disc and HPX® Double Disc Holder

Continental Disc Corporation announces the launch of its newest products which enhance their industry-leading HPX® rupture disc product line: the SANITRX HPX® II Rupture Disc and the HPX® Double Disc Holder.

The SANITRX HPX® II Rupture Disc is a semicircular, scored, reverse acting rupture disc designed specifically for applications in the pharmaceutical, food & beverage and biotech industries that require pressures above our SANITRX HPX® Rupture Disc. Available in sizes 1 ½" to 4," this rupture disc is available to fit between standard sanitary ferrules, NA CONNECT® flanges or SANITRX® fittings. SANITRX HPX® II rupture discs are shipped in sanitary, environmentally friendly, non-toxic packaging.

Common applications for the new SANITRX HPX® II Rupture Disc product include: filters, autoclaves, bioreactors, process vessels, heat exchangers, storage & transport vessels, fermenters, clean steam piping, WFI vessels & piping, CIP & SIP skids and piping, lyophilizers (freeze drying), and mixing, drying, granulating equipment.

Features of the new SANITRX HPX® II Rupture Disc include extreme cycling durability, choice of 90% or 95% maximum recommended operating ratio, and precision scoring on the vent side of the rupture disc dome, which assures optimum cleanability and improves rupture disc performance.

The HPX® Double Disc Holder consists of three holder components: an inlet, a mid-flange and an outlet piece, in order to accommodate two HPX® Rupture Discs. The first of the two HPX® Rupture Discs is located between the inlet and the mid-flange, and the second HPX® Rupture Disc is between the mid-flange and outlet. This assembly arrangement of holder components and rupture discs provides the solution to multiple applications without the need of a more complicated piping arrangement.

Common uses of the HPX® Double Disc assembly are for rupture disc leak detection, as an actuated rapid opening device and for the elimination of back pressure.
