Accessories

BS&B supplies many of the Accessories required to safely and conveniently install our overpressure relief devices and complementary products. Through our professional team and global network of sales engineers and procurement personnel, we are able to provide the highest quality accessory products to meet your installation requirements.

Saf-T-Change Quick Disk Replacement (QDR)

After activation, the replacement disk is quickly slid into place. Saving hours of lost production due to blown rupture disks.

Tell-Tale Assemblies & Excess Flow Valves/Gauges

A gauge tap in the outlet flange of the safety head may be considered when the safety head is installed in a vertical position.

Spare Safety Heads & Cap Screws

Jackscrews

When activated, the jackscrews effectively separate the flanges, providing adequate clearance to remove or insert a safety head and external gaskets.

Lifting Lug Eye Bolts

Eye bolts are recommended when weight and/or accessibility is a factor in lifting safety heads.

Baffle Plate

When a safety head is free-vented to atmosphere, a baffle plate may be considered to disperse overpressure and absorb recoil.

Overview

The type ECV™ reverse buckling Compression Loaded Style Disk provides over pressure relief in either gas/vapor or liquid application. The ECV disk is designed with a perforated circular score in the perimeter of the dome. Gaskets which are activated by assembly of safety head, cover the perforated score line to achieve a sealed construction. The snap action of reverse buckling disk technology enables very low burst pressures to be achieved avoiding the use of weaker slotted composite disk designs.

ECV™ Rupture Disk (Bursting Disc) Material Options

The ECR™ rupture disks (bursting discs) is available in a range of corrosion resistant materials. Standard disk materials are Nickel alloy 200, Stainless Steel grade 316, Monel® (Nickel alloy 400), Inconel® (Nickel alloy 600), Hastelloy® C-276, & Tantalum. All standard disks are available with 0%, 5%, and 10% manufacturing ranges.

 

Sanitary & Aseptic Applications

Eco-Saf rupture disks (bursting discs), in non-contaminating materials, presenting a smooth disk surface towards the process are ideal for sanitary and aseptic applications. The disk’s sanitary gasket provides a leak tight seal when installed in its holder Type ER-C and secured by standard sanitary clamps.

 

Installation in EC-7RS™ Safety Head

The ECV™ rupture disks (bursting discs) may be installed in the EC-7RS™ safety head and the cap screws torque to provide the correct load on the disk on the workshop before installation in the process. The pretorquable feature minimizes the possibility of process leakage or permanent disk failure due to incorrect torque. Asymmetric locating pins center the disk in the safety head ensuring the correct direction of the disk installation.
