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.

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.
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.

Opti-Gard rupture disc and Flo-Tel sensor featured at booth 921
Broken Arrow, Okla. (September 25, 2009) – Providing intelligent pressure relief and reliable rupture detection technology, Oseco will feature its Opti-Gard™ rupture disc and Flo-Tel™ sensor at The New Chem Show, booth 921. The show will take place from November 17-19 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City, N.Y.
Oseco’s Opti-Gard, an ASME UD certified rupture disc, offers the highest performance characteristics available for liquid, gas or vapor applications. With a 95% operating to burst pressure ratio and a performance tolerance of 3%, Opti-Gard provides a single disc solution across a wide range of sizes and burst pressures. All Opti-Gard parts that are exposed to media flow are manufactured from either 316 Stainless Steel or corrosion-resistant Hastelloy C as standard.
The Opti-Gard uses the integral Flo-Tel non-invasive detection device to indicate to the user when the disc has ruptured. Unlike traditional gasketed detectors, Flo-Tel is reusable and only requires a one-time installation. Since it is isolated from downstream pressure fluctuations or aggressive media, it will not cause unnecessary downtime through false “failure” indication.
