Use these ribbed burst panels in vacuum conditions

| By Chemical Engineering



This newly launched ribbed bursting panel ensures that safe operations are maintained when low to medium levels of vacuum are present. The panel’s unique design can withstand vacuum or backpressure of up to 40% of the minimum burst pressure, making it suitable for many standard applications, such as silos and bucket elevators, where the dusty conditions commonly associated with the storage and handling of grains and powders can potentially lead to dangerous explosions. The non-torque-sensitive panel has a low-profile, space-saving design, and is available with the optional benefit of an integral burst-detection system for instantaneous notification when the panel has functioned. — Elfab Ltd., North Shields, U.K.
