Rupture Discs

{0 Comments}

These are thin diaphragms held between flanges and calibrated to burst at a specified static inlet pressure. Unlike relief valves, rapture discs cannot reseal when the pressure declines. Once the disc ruptures, any flow into the vessel will exit through the disc, and the disc must be replaced before the pressure vessel, can be placed …

Pilot Operated Relief Valves

Pilot-operated relief valves use the pressure in the vessel rather than a spring to seal the valve and a pilot to activate the mechanism. Figure 13-6 is a schematic of a typical pilot-operated valve. A piece of tubing communicates pressure between the relief valve inlet and pilot. When this pressure is below the set pressure …
