Emission and Pollution Control
Rupture Disc as Valveguard
Pressure Relief Valves (PRVs) are commonly used in many industries to protect production facilities from an overpressure catastrophe. However, PRVs are expensive to maintain, susceptible to leaking toxic media and at risk of clogging during a polymeric process.
Protect your PRV investments and reduce fugitive emissions by installing upstream rupture discs from Fike as per the ASME Section VIII, Division 1 requirement below
A rupture disc may be installed between a pressure relief valve and the vessel provided:
Figure: Combination process side of the disc.
The rupture disc takes the abuse, preserving the internals of your expensive Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) and protecting it from corrosive media, build-up and polymerization.
Without Rupture Disc
With Rupture Disc
Save downtime, control emissions, protect your pressure relief valves.:
- Zero process leakage to the atmosphere;
- Longer periods between major overhauls;
- Valves can be checked in place;
- Less expensive valve trim material can be used; and
- Valve life is extended by isolating corrosive fluids from internal valve parts
- ASME/CE Certified
