Maintaining a hygienic atmosphere within the process environment is vital for many pharmaceutical applications. Elfab has designed a range of rupture disc solutions to meet these demanding sanitary requirements and ensure that the processes remains sterile.

A popular hygienic pressure relief solution is our Ferrule Opti-Gard rupture disc (bursting disc). The smooth surface finish prevents build-up of contaminants and assists with stream sterilization (SIP) and clean-in-place (CIP) procedures.

Elfab’s range of graphite rupture discs are also used within the pharmaceutical industry as they offer a low pressure, non-corrosive solution.

For a non-fragmenting low pressure alternative, have a look at our Ferrule Opti-Gard SoLo rupture disc.

Burst detection

Non-invasive burst detection can additionally reduce risks associated with a pressure event. Environmental concerns and the drive to reach zero emissions have changed the way many pharmaceutical plants are run. Unregulated leakage can have considerable financial repercussions due to fines, sanctions and emissions taxes.

Elfab’s Ferrule Opti-Gard rupture discs come with our integral Flo-Tel actuator fitted as standard. They offer the added benefit of non-invasive, ATEX-approved burst detection to quickly identify when a disc has burst and swiftly resolve the problem.
