Elfab Increases ASME VIII Product Approvals

Safe-Gard earns UD stamp for use in North America

Cincinnati, OH (June 21, 2007) - Pressure-management specialist Elfab has expanded its range of ASME VIII-approved bursting discs with the addition of the Safe-Gard forward acting rupture disc.

With a proven track record protecting liquid, gas and vapor services in Europe, Safe-Gard is the latest bursting disc from Elfab to successfully undergo the comprehensive testing required to be granted capacity certification and authorisation to apply the UD mark. With this certification, the Safe-Gard is now available to customers across North America and Canada, where the UD stamp is a mandatory requirement.

Safe-Gard is an advanced, forward acting burst disc, radially scored on the vent side to ensure safety. The non-fragmenting design withstands full vacuum and is especially well suited for relief valve isolation in liquid and gas applications. The Safe-Gard comes standard in 316 Stainless Steel (Iconel, Monel and Nickel also available), providing the versatility and simplicity of a conventional metal disc with the performance benefits of scored disc technology. The disc is also ASME approved for use with integral Flo-Tel(TM), Elfab's unique non-invasive magnetic rupture disc detection system.
