Sanitary rupture discs available in Hastelloy construction

| By Chemical Engineering

The Axius SC Sanitary Rupture Disc, specifically designed for the stringent sanitary and aseptic requirements of the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, is now available in Hastelloy C276 mFikeWCaterial. In many situations, Hastelloy is preferred over stainless steel because of its corrosion resistance in demanding applications. In both Hastelloy and stainless steel, the Axius SC is free of any indentations, crevices or other design features that may trap process contaminants. The Axius SC in Hastelloy C276 material is available with a broad burst-pressure range, with full vacuum resistance at all burst pressures, similar to the existing 316/316L stainless-steel models. Suitable for both gas and liquid applications, the non-fragmenting rupture discs are able to fit directly into standard industry ferrule connections. — Fike Corp., Blue Springs, Mo.
