Oseco Features Pressure Solutions at ChemInnovations 2010

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.

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.

Oseco’s New SRC Rupture Disc Improves Pressurized Railcar Safety

Scored railcar disc won’t leak at high pressures where traditional composite discs fail

Broken Arrow, Okla. (February 16, 2010) – Pressurized rail cars are at constant risk of explosion due to improper or changing pressurization.  Offering an improvement over traditional, failure prone composite discs, Oseco has released the new SRC (scored railcar) rupture disc.  The SRC meets AAR standards and protects against rail car explosions.

The SRC is a precision scored disc, which fits standard threaded or bolted railcar safety vents.  The disc will burst and safely equalize pressure if the car’s internal pressure ever builds or drops to a dangerous level, eliminating the danger of explosion.

Composite discs traditionally used by pressurized tank car users and manufacturers utilize a PTFE Teflon sealing membrane, which is susceptible to damage and pinholes that can cause leaks.  Available in Inconel or Stainless Steel for corrosive applications, the SRC disc features a solid metal design that completely eliminates the fragile PTFE seal and locks out damage-causing foreign materials, even when subjected to constant pressure for extended periods.

Flo-Tel+™ Non-Invasive Rupture Detector from Oseco

Practical, cost-effective rupture detection eliminates expensive rewiring costs

Broken Arrow, Okla. (November 4, 2009) – Standard rupture disc sensors require replacement or expensive rewiring after one use, and are often in contact with the process flow, creating possible leak paths. To provide non-invasive and cost-effective burst detection for rupture discs, Oseco offers the Flo-Tel+™ detection system.

Flo-Tel BLOG

The Flo-Tel+ is designed to work with Oseco’s Opti-Gard™ rupture disc, offering a practical solution for rupture disc detection needs. The sensor operates on a simple reed-switch and magnet technology, fitting into the Opti-Gard holder with a magnet poised over the rupture disc. When the disc bursts, the magnet and disc arc away from the sensor, creating an open circuit signal. After rupturing, the disc is the only element that needs to be replaced, eliminating expensive sensor rewiring costs.

Since the sensor is never in contact with the process flow, there are no potential leak paths. Its non-invasive design is unaffected by downstream pressure fluctuations or corrosion.

Oseco Introduces “Stock to Dock” Plastic Extruder Plug Program

Program delivers extruder burst plugs in half the time

Broken Arrow, Okla. (September 3, 2009) – Overpressurization in plastic extruders causes expensive equipment damage and can lead to long periods of downtime for plastics manufacturers. Oseco’s new “Stock to Dock” extruder plug program delivers overpressurization protection for plastic extruders in half the time of other providers. The program offers a 10-day lead time on all orders, allowing faster delivery and less downtime.

Oseco extruder plugs protect equipment and reduce downtime.

Oseco’s extruders plugs are installed through the extruder barrel with the rupture disc end flush with the inside barrel wall, just before melted plastic is forced through the screen pack. This area of the extruder barrel can experience pressures greater than 5000 psi. Should pressure inside the barrel exceed a predetermined amount, the plug will open up and safely vent the molten plastic.

The “Stock to Dock” extruder plug program offers 1.81-inch screwdriver head, and 3 and 6-inch machined hex head burst plugs in a wide range of burst pressures. All burst plugs bodies are constructed of stainless steel and have a ½ inch-20 UNF standard thread.
