Broken Arrow, Okla. (January 5, 2012) – Oseco’s newly redesigned website helps both new and experienced users of rupture discs and explosion vents select the right products for their needs. The new website, www.oseco.com, is the first designed by a rupture disc manufacturer to allow visitors to find a product based on their industry and application, and request a quote in the same visit.
Oseco’s new website lets visitors choose products by their application.
The new website organizes Oseco’s full range of rupture discs and explosion vents into industry and application groups. Visitors can select their industry or application, and see a list of recommended products. In instances where there are many options, the site will narrow the selection based on additional visitor criteria. The new site also includes a section to highlight Oseco’s custom engineered pressure relief devices.
Visitors can schedule a lunch & learn for on-site rupture disc and explosion vent training, or request a quote with 24 hour response time (or by Monday afternoon for weekend submissions).
The redesign was created with the user in mind, to make the experience as visitor friendly as possible. Since launching the website, Oseco has recorded a 53% increase in the time visitors spend on the site, and a 43% increase in average page view per visitor.

Broken Arrow, Okla. (October 5, 2011) – Oseco will feature its highly efficient FAS (Forward Acting Scored) and PRO+ (Precision Reverse Operating) rupture discs at The Chem Show, booth 729. The show takes place November 1-3 at the Javits Center (New York, N.Y.).
Oseco’s FAS and PRO+ discs, on display at The Chem Show booth 729.
The FAS and PRO+ have the industry’s best KR values, a measurement used to determine the frictional flow loss through a rupture disc and holder. The FAS has the lowest available KR of any forward acting rupture disc, and PRO+ offers a best-in-class KR for reverse buckling discs. The low KR values of the two discs guarantee an efficient flow, less pressure drop and faster emergency pressure relief. Both discs are commonly used for safety relief valve isolation and are designed to be non-fragmenting.

Oseco’s FAS rupture disc is a fail-safe, non-fragmenting rupture disc commonly used for safety relief valve isolation. It features the industry’s best KR or flow coefficient value, which ensures efficient flow, less pressure drop and faster emergency pressure relief. The FAS is available in corrosive resistant materials and capable of withstanding temperatures up to 900° F, making it ideal for performance in harsh conditions.
The company will also display its full line of rupture discs and explosion vents, for use in protecting people and equipment from explosions caused by over-pressurization.

Company to announce change to vent stocking program at booth 485
Broken Arrow, Okla. (May 20, 2011) – Delivering protection against dangerous over-pressurization in industrial processes, Oseco will feature its line of explosion vents at the National Fire Protection Association’s 2011 Conference and Expo. The show will take place from June 12-14 at the Boston Convention Center in Boston, Mass. Customers can learn more about Oseco’s explosion vents, and get information on dramatic changes to Oseco’s explosion vent stocking program at the company’s booth 485.

Oseco’s explosion vents are designed to vent deflagrations that occur as a result of combustible dust. Common applications at risk of dust explosions include baghouses, dust collectors, bulk storage units, conveyance systems and ductwork. As the NFPA and OSHA continue to enforce the regulations set forth in NFPA 68, it is imperative that processes involving explosive dust are properly vented in case of an explosion. Oseco’s explosion vent stocking program focuses on common sizes and applications to help customers’ plants quickly and easily comply with NFPA and OSHA regulations. The program features a lead time of only three days on orders of Oseco’s most widely used explosion vents.

Broken Arrow, Okla. (April 18, 2010) – Pressure relief specialist Oseco will be making its fifth appearance on the TV show Mythbusters. The episode, entitled “Running on Water,” airs this Wednesday night at 8 CDT on the Discovery Channel.
Mythbusters puts movie stunts and urban myths to the test in real world conditions, to see if they are “Confirmed”, “Plausible” or “Busted.” In the past, the show has turned to Oseco’s rupture discs whenever they needed help measuring the force generated from an explosion. In Oseco’s next appearance, its discs will be used in a segment called “What is Bombproof?” to determine the protection that everyday barriers, such as cars and concrete walls, offer to the human body against explosions.
Oseco will issue a full release with more details after the episode airs.

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.

Precision rupture discs used to test a common myth
Broken Arrow, Okla. (October 19, 2009) – Intelligent pressure relief manufacturer Oseco has once again teamed up with the TV show MythBusters to test a common myth. The show used Oseco equipment while testing the plausibility of the popular phrase “knock your socks off.”
MythBusters tests the reality of movie stunts and urban myths when conducted under real-world conditions. Oseco equipment was featured in the episode entitled, “Knock Your Socks Off,” which tests if someone can actually be knocked out of their socks without experiencing a deadly amount of force. Rigs with mannequin feet wearing socks were set up at varying distances from 500 pounds of explosives. The show placed Oseco rupture discs on each rig that were calibrated to burst at exactly at 100 psi, which is the amount of force it would take to kill a human being.
After the blast went off, the cast judged if the socks were knocked off of any rigs with rupture discs that had not burst. They determined that it was impossible for a human to experience enough force that would “knock your socks off” without lethal effects.
This was the second episode of MythBusters that used Oseco’s equipment to help bust myths. The first, entitled “Phone Book Friction” tested a movie stunt scene found in the shark horror film, Deep Blue Sea. In it, the characters used an explosive harpoon on their genetically engineered shark nemesis, while the main character floated in the water a mere 75 feet away. The cast members employed Oseco’s rupture discs to check if the character would have been able to withstand the shock wave from such an explosion in real life.
