Pressure relief for autoclaves / reactors and gas-tight pressure vessels
REMBE® rupture discs secure these containers against unacceptable overpressure and vacuum, fulfilling the highest requirements of purity/sterility, vacuum resistance and leak-tightness.
A broad range of containers can be protected due to the compact design of the rupture disc and the available connection options.
Very often, for these applications, the UKB LS, IKB® LS or HPRD rupture discs are used for autoclaves, but KUB® and IKB® are also used for pressure vessels. Some examples: protecting sterilization equipment, ultra-pure applications, laboratory autoclaves / bioreactors such as stirring tanks, and in the laser industry as well as the research and development departments in various industries.
The appropriate rupture discs for your application depends on the respective process conditions. If particularly high pressures are present, the HPRD is usually considered the most suitable. If you need a welded unit, the UKB LS can also be your first choice.
- No diffusion of the process medium due to minimal leak rate (min. <10^-7 mbar l/s): Holder and rupture disc are a welded unit
- Full vacuum resistance without additional vacuum support, Additional vacuum support could lead to leakage at low burst pressures
- Suitable for processes with high temperatures
- Can be sterilized
- Electro polished connections if required
