Broken Arrow, Okla. (May 30, 2013) – Oseco will present its high-performance MV-RD explosion vent at the upcoming National Fire Protection Association Conference and Expo in Chicago.
MV-RD will be featured at the NFPA show
Oseco’s MV-RD is a domed designed explosion vent for high-cycling applications such as industrial dust collectors, bag houses and bulk storage units. It can withstand environments that experience vacuum pressures up to 12 pounds per square inch or 24.4 inches mercury. The MV-RD’s specifications increases the vent’s life cycle and meets the explosion protection requirements of NFPA 68. Common sizes of the MV-RD are included in Oseco’s Explosion Vent Stocking Program, which features a short two-day lead time, minimizing production downtime.
The MV-RD and other Oseco safety products will be displayed in booth No. 1159 from June 10 to 12 at the McCormick Place Convention Center.

Oseco’s safety plug comes preset, installs in seconds
Broken Arrow, Okla. (May 20, 2013) – Oseco has released a new safety plug to protect high-pressure lines and fluid ends on fracking sites. The Oseco Safety Plug arrives preset to the user’s specified burst pressure and is installed in seconds, eliminating the downtime that comes with manually adjusting a traditional relief valve.
New oilfield fracking plugs from Oseco.
The safety plug immediately relieves pressure, such as pumping against a closed valve. Unlike transducers whose kick-outs can slow pumps but cannot instantly relieve pressure, Oseco’s technology delivers immediate pressure relief.
The safety plug has a bursting pressure range of 6,000 to 15,500 pounds per square inch gauge and a flow rate up to 1,500 gallons per minute, the highest amount available. The plug lasts up to six months without maintenance and has been compression-loaded disc-tested to 3.5 million cycles with no effect on accuracy.
Each unit comes with certification paperwork documenting the plug’s accuracy.

Non-fragmenting reverse buckling disc ideal for gas or liquid applications
Broken Arrow, Okla. (February 17, 2012) – Oseco’s new PRO+KRGL reverse buckling rupture disc for gas or liquid applications provides a best-in-class Kr value (used to determine the frictional flow loss through a rupture disc and holder) for improved flow, which permits the use of smaller piping. The disc is designed for use in safety relief valve isolation, primary pressure relief or in conjunction with a safety relief valve as secondary pressure relief.
Oseco’s new PRO+KRGL reverse buckling rupture disc.
The disc has a 95% operating ratio, allowing users to operate their processes near capacity without fear of the disc bursting prematurely, decreasing downtime for maintenance. The PRO+KRGL is non-fragmenting, making it an ideal reverse buckling disc for safety relief valve isolation.
Oseco also offers the industry’s best Kr value with its FAS rupture disc, a forward acting non-fragmenting rupture disc designed for safety relief valve isolation.

Broken Arrow, Okla. (January 5, 2012) – Oseco’s newly redesigned website helps both new and experienced users of rupture discs and explosion vents select the right products for their needs. The new website, www.oseco.com, is the first designed by a rupture disc manufacturer to allow visitors to find a product based on their industry and application, and request a quote in the same visit.
Oseco’s new website lets visitors choose products by their application.
The new website organizes Oseco’s full range of rupture discs and explosion vents into industry and application groups. Visitors can select their industry or application, and see a list of recommended products. In instances where there are many options, the site will narrow the selection based on additional visitor criteria. The new site also includes a section to highlight Oseco’s custom engineered pressure relief devices.
Visitors can schedule a lunch & learn for on-site rupture disc and explosion vent training, or request a quote with 24 hour response time (or by Monday afternoon for weekend submissions).
The redesign was created with the user in mind, to make the experience as visitor friendly as possible. Since launching the website, Oseco has recorded a 53% increase in the time visitors spend on the site, and a 43% increase in average page view per visitor.

Broken Arrow, Okla. (October 5, 2011) – Oseco will feature its highly efficient FAS (Forward Acting Scored) and PRO+ (Precision Reverse Operating) rupture discs at The Chem Show, booth 729. The show takes place November 1-3 at the Javits Center (New York, N.Y.).
Oseco’s FAS and PRO+ discs, on display at The Chem Show booth 729.
The FAS and PRO+ have the industry’s best KR values, a measurement used to determine the frictional flow loss through a rupture disc and holder. The FAS has the lowest available KR of any forward acting rupture disc, and PRO+ offers a best-in-class KR for reverse buckling discs. The low KR values of the two discs guarantee an efficient flow, less pressure drop and faster emergency pressure relief. Both discs are commonly used for safety relief valve isolation and are designed to be non-fragmenting.

Program supplies industry’s best and most commonly used explosion vents
Broken Arrow, Okla. (September 2, 2011) – Oseco’s Express Vent Stocking Program features a 2 day lead time on Oseco’s high performance MV explosion vents. The program is designed to reduce inventory on-hand for users and manufacturers of baghouses, dust collectors and bulk storage units that must maintain NFPA 68 compliance.
Oseco’s Express Vent Stocking Program includes the MV-RD.
Oseco’s MV explosion vents meet the requirements of NFPA 68, which requires that facilities have provisions for venting dust deflagrations within an enclosure, thereby reducing the danger to personnel and equipment caused by an explosion.
The Express Vent Stocking Program provides on-demand, quick delivery of Oseco’s MV explosion vents. The program includes Oseco’s MV-RD explosion vent for dust collectors. The MV-RD’s high performance characteristics result in extended service life and lower maintenance costs. Also included is the MV-RF for applications requiring a flat vent that can withstand the low vacuum conditions of bulk storage units or sanitary applications where product build-up may be a concern.

MV-RD offers industry-best performance
Broken Arrow, Okla. (June 9, 2011) – Protecting personnel and equipment during deflagrations in high cycling/ high vacuum applications, Oseco offers the new MV-RD explosion vent. The vent provides extended in-service life, lower burst pressure (pstat) in smaller sizes, and an industry-first two-year warranty.
Oseco’s new MV-RD explosion vent for operation in high vacuum environments.
The MV-RD explosion vent is designed for high cycling applications, such as in dust collectors and bag houses that experience vacuum pressures up to 12 psig/ 24.4 inHg. The vent mounts on enclosures where dust explosions may occur, and will activate to safely relieve pressure in the event of a deflagration, thereby preventing a large explosion. The MV-RD can also be used on bulk storage units and in ductwork applications requiring a square explosion vent.
Oseco’s newest vent features a high vacuum rating (-12 psig/24.4 inHg) to help extend the life of the vent in applications where high vacuum pressure exists. Its lower burst pressures give users the ability to reach required relief area without having to go up in vent size. Unlike other domed vents, the MV-RD can operate in temperatures up to 450 °F.
The MV-RD meets the requirements of the OSHA Combustible Dust National Emphasis Program and NFPA 68. It offers industry-best performance tolerances of ± .25 psig and an operating ratio of 80%. The MV-RD is also the first product in its class to offer a two-year warranty.
