LOTRX - Rupture Disc
From Reverse Acting
The LOTRX Rupture Disc represents a breakthrough in rupture disc design. The LOTRX Rupture Disc provides all the benfits of Continental's scored, reverse acting discs, with additional features that make it ideal for extremely low pressure applications. The LOTRX comes enhanced with features such as the Failure Initiating Indent, which lowers the pressure at which reversal occurs, and the Notched Outlet Ring, that facilitates opening of the rupture disc along the precision semicircular score at extremely low reversal pressures.

(B.D.I.) Burst Disc Indicator
Continental Disc Corporation's Burst Disc Indicator (B.D.I.) Alarm System is designed specifically for use with C.D.C. Rupture Discs. Upon disc rupture, the Burst Disc Indicator strip is severed, disrupting the flow of electric current through the strip. An attached alarm monitor can then transmit a warning and/or activate appropriate equipment.
Enviroguard Pipe End Covers
Protect free vent rupture disc piping and safety relief valve outlets from unwanted foreign material, rain, insects or birds by installing the ENVIRO GUARD pipe end cover. It is available for 90° or 45° pipe ends and may be purchased with an optional retrieval rope to retain cover near the location after venting.
Heat Shields are typically used to reduce the process temperature to which a rupture disc is exposed. Heat Shields are used where Teflon or other exotic material liners are required for corrosion resistance or as part of the rupture disc itself in combination with high process temperature.
