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.

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.

No holder required for installation, ASME UD stamps available
Broken Arrow, Okla. (January 28, 2011) – For use in highly corrosive gas and liquid processes, pressure relief expert Oseco has developed a new line of graphite rupture discs. The GraphiTech line is available in three configurations, including the GraphiTech Monoblock (GTM), the GraphiTech Monoblock with Vacuum Support (GTMV) and the GraphiTech Inverted (GTI).
Oseco’s GraphiTech rupture discs for corrosive processes.
GraphiTech discs are all constructed using corrosive resistant, resin-impregnated graphite, and include non-asbestos inlet and outlet gaskets. The GTM is available for general applications that require a rupture disc to withstand corrosive chemicals, such as processes involving sulfuric or hydrochloric acid, ultrapure water and phosgene. The GTMV is designed for the same corrosive processes that need vacuum protection, which can be required on any ASME vessel. The GTI’s inverted disc is engineered for jobs requiring a high burst pressure, and also provides additional corrosive protection with its available Teflon liner.
GraphiTech discs’ flat design allows them to fit securely in between piping flanges with no holders required for installation. With a 0% manufacturing range and 90% operating ratio, discs are stamped at their requested burst pressure and temperature. All models are available in sizes from 1” through 24”, with ASME UD stamps available.

Opti-Gard pressure relief system available for demonstration at booth #304
Broken Arrow, Okla. (September 15, 2010) – Pressure relief expert Oseco will exhibit its Opti-Gard system at the ChemInnovations 2010 Conference and Expo, October 19-21 in Houston, Texas. The Opti-Gard pressure relief system, along with Oseco’s full line of rupture discs and explosion vents, will be available for demonstration at Oseco’s booth #304.
Oseco’s will feature the Opti-Gard system at ChemInnovations 2010, booth #304.
The Opti-Gard system protects personnel and equipment from over-pressurization situations. If internal system pressure reaches a dangerous level, the disc will burst to safely vent the pressure and minimize damage. Opti-Gard’s Flo-Tel+ sensor then notifies the user that the disc has burst.
Opti-Gard offers the highest performance characteristics available for liquid, gas and vapor applications. All parts are manufactured from either 316 Stainless Steel or Hastelloy C as standard. A single disc design ensures that user stock levels are kept to a minimum.
The Opti-Gard’s integral Flo-Tel+ non-invasive detection device is reusable and only requires a one-time installation, unlike traditional gasketed detectors. Since the Flo-Tel+ is isolated from downstream pressure fluctuations or aggressive media, it will not cause unnecessary downtime through false “failure” indication.
“By leveraging the exceptional performance characteristics of the new Opti-Gard design along with the non-invasive Flot-Tel+ sensor, customers are able to run their processes to the highest levels of productivity without worrying about inaccurate burst detection due to chemical attacks on the sensor membrane,” said Oseco’s VP of Engineering, Mark Holt.
