The Continental Disc HPX® Rupture Disc
The HPX® Rupture Disc is a semicircular scored reverse acting rupture disc that is ideal for liquid or gas/vapor applications.
Each lot of rupture discs is built to order per the specifications of each overpressure relief requirement in your plant. Each lot is then performance tested to provide reliable performance in your plant during normal operations and in over-pressure conditions. Each HPX Rupture Disc is proof pressure-tested prior to shipment.
Optimum material thickness and manufacturing tooling design provide not only the full opening and accurate burst rating you expect, but also longer service life at higher operating-to-burst pressure ratios demanded by to-day’s process industries.
Due to its high performance operating capabilities, range of burst ratings and materials of construction, the HPX Rupture Disc is the ideal product to use in plants where production includes batch processing runs where operating conditions and media may change frequently. The variability offered by HPX Rupture Discs makes future modifications to specifications easier to incorporate in change control procedures and without piping modifications.
The HPX Rupture Disc can be used in a wide range of applications in many different industries and applications:
- Reactors, Heat Exchangers, Chillers, Relief Valve Isolation
- Process Columns and Vessels, Storage and Transportation Tanks and Trailers
- Distillation Columns, Separators, Coking Drums
- Production Vessels, Blending and Milling Vessels
