A new rupture disc is ASME BPE compliant

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The new IntegrX-HPX rupture disc (photo) addresses the need to improve process performance, reliability and safety within the biopharmaceutical industry. The IntegrX-HPX combines the unrivaled performance of the company’s HPX with ASME BPE (bioprocessing equipment) compliant crevice-free design, removing the need for integral seals. Manufactured and tested to optimize service life and performance, the IntegrX-HPX is a semi-circular, scored, reverse-acting rupture disc is suited for cyclic process conditions from full vacuum to 95% of the stamped rating. With the disc built into a cartridge, the robust welded design of the IntegrX-HPX mitigates the impact of downstream piping loads on the disc burst pressure and overall performance. — Continental Disc Corp., Liberty, Mo.
