Oseco’s Specialized Rupture Disks for Pharmaceutical Processes
Broken Arrow, Oklahoma (December 21, 2006) – Pharmaceutical processes require precise rupture protection, and Oklahoma Safety Equipment Co., Inc.’s (Oseco) S-PRO-S and PROLP disks are specially suited for these applications. These disks, along with Oseco’s full line of rupture protection products, will be on display at the Interphex Conference and Exhibition, February 1-2 in Puerto Rico.
Oseco’s S-PRO-S combines a bursting disk and sensor into a single assembly, eliminating the need to install a separate sensor. A burst disk breaks the sensor’s circuit and triggers the activation of an alarm, allowing overpressure situations to be corrected with a minimum of process downtime. The design minimizes product buildup, prevents contamination from rupture disk pieces, and is ideal for use in sanitary services such as pharmaceutical manufacturing. The uni-body system is able to withstand full vacuum (14.7 psi) without a separate vacuum support.
The PROLP rupture disk operates in very low pressure vessels, where equipment operating costs are key considerations. It has a fully opening, perimeter-scored design which utilizes Oseco’s unique computerized load cell technology. The scoring accuracy means this highly specialized disk is well-suited for most gas, vapor or liquid low pressure applications, such as those found in pharmaceutical plants.
In addition to these disks, Oseco’s full line of precision rupture disks, rupture panels and sensors will be on display at the show. Visitors may register to win a DVD player at the company’s booth, 1336, until the winner is drawn on the last day of the show.
