24″ FAS Bursting Disk is Problem-Solver
Broken Arrow, Oklahoma (February 15, 2007) – One of Oseco’s best-selling pressure relief product ranges is the versatile line of FAS bursting disks. The company is now manufacturing a 24″ FAS, which is their largest forward-acting scored disk offered.
In the past, large disk applications had limited options and often needed disks from different product lines, requiring more work for engineers. With the addition of the large 24″ disk customers can cover many of their disk needs with the same product line, for easier specification.
The 24″ FAS is non-fragmenting, keeping disk pieces from entering a piping system in the event of a disk burst. The disk can withstand full vacuum and will operate at up to 90% of the stamped rating and still provide excellent service life. In addition, the disk performs well in static and high-cycling services. The scored portion of the disk is placed away from the process, preventing product buildup and making it ideal for sanitary applications.
Though proper installation is an important factor in disk performance, the 24″ FAS will activate at or below the rated burst pressure even when damaged or installed incorrectly, making it fail-safe. The user-friendly, non-torque sensitive design eliminates the need for pre-torqued rupture disk holders.
This latest addition to the FAS line, which is available in a wide range of sizes from 1″ up to the new 24″, allows customers and engineers to choose from an increased range of disks that suit many needs within a single facility. It is available in Hallestoy, 316 Stainless Steel, Nickel, Inconel and Monel; other materials are available upon request.
