    Drilling & Casing Protection

1

Transportation & Storage

Industrial containers like intermodal tanks and railcars often need a reliable overpressure solution as protection during the transportation of hazardous liquids or gases. Where there is a risk of over pressurisation the disc ruptures and prevents the vessel exploding.

Gas Coolers & Heat Exchangers

Rupture discs (or burst discs) act as primary valve isolation or secondary pressure relief devices within shell and tube gas coolers and heat exchangers.

De-Oilers

Rupture discs or bursting discs help to regulate the flow of separated liquids and relieve the excess pressure when required.

4

Flare Stacks

If the pressure in the gas recovery system of a Flare Stack rises, the rupture disc will burst first, re-establishing the path to the flare which is ignited to burn the waste gas.

Knock-Out Drums

In most industrial plants, there is a vapour-liquid separator, or knockout drum, upstream of the flare to remove any liquid that may accompany the relieved gases. Rupture discs protect knockout drums from being over pressured.

Sulphur Recover Units

During the recovery of sulphur in modern refineries high temperatures and pressures coupled with back pressures and potential pipe blockages can lead to catastrophic explosions. Rupture discs are now widely used as protection against overpressurisation during this sulphur recovery process.

Drilling & Casing Protection

Rupture disc devices are used throughout the entire oil and gas production process. In drilling applications, they are commonly used for both pressure activation and pressure relief.
