Explosion protection for plastic extrusion applications

By Chemical Engineering |

The EBP Series of explosion burst plugs (photo) are used to protect plastic extrusion equipment from overpressurization. The EBP Series’ welded design provides a flush attachment, preventing potential product buildup. Stronger welded joints make EBP devices more resistant to increased temperatures, eliminating spurious bursts and product contamination. Joint failure is avoided during increased temperatures and pressure cycling. The welded design also removes material creep ensuring burst repeatability. The burst tolerance is±10%, and all units are leak-tested and thread-verified using an optical comparator, and are ultrasonically cleaned prior to shipment. — ZOOK USA, Chagrin Falls, Ohio
