Rupture Disk
The original rupture disk (bursting disc) manufacturer shaping the growth of pressure relief devices for over 80 years.

SVI Rupture Disk (Bursting Disc) Assembly

A new one piece disposable rupture disk (bursting disc) assembly for isolating safety-relief valves.
For retrofit with fixed piping.

Features

  1. Solid reverse buckling S-90 Disk welded into a flange assembly.
  2. Petals open up along scored (pre-weakened) lines.
  3. Petals open up to give full flow.
  4. Available in sizes 1 1/2 " thru 6" including 2 1/2".
  5. Fluoropolymer Boot available upon request for process side of SVI.
  6. Designed specifically to isolate relief valves from the process media and keep the process fluid from leaking to the atmosphere.
  7. The SVI fits between ANSI flanges.
  8. A pair of gaskets supplied with each SVI assembly
  9. Standard disk materials will be Nickel and Inconel. The body and flange will be 316 Stainless Steel. Consult BS&B for other Disk Materials.

Benefits

  1. No piping changes are required for retrofit of existing relief valve systems.
  2. No knife blades to maintain.

Engineering Information

Minimum and maximum pressure ratings are applicable at 72° F.

SVI Flanges are 316 stainless steel or Inconel.

Manufacturing Range:

  1. Inconel and nickel rupture disks (bursting discs) are available with 5% and 10% manufacturing range.
  2. On these 5% and 10% manufacturing ranges, the total range is placed on the minus side of the requested pressure rating.

Example:

If a 200 psig SVI is ordered with a 10% manufacturing range, it may be tagged at any pressure between 200 psig and 180 psig.

Burst Tolerances:

Burst tolerances are the maximum variation from the above tagged burst pressure.
Disks tagged above 40 psig. Burst Tolerance ± 5%.
Disks tagged 40 psig and below: ± 2 psi.
Recommended maximum temperatures for each metal are:
Inconel: 900° F.
Nickel: 750° F.
