Rupture Discs

Rupture DiscsPressure sensitive Rupture Discs are used as over pressure protectors, when normal running pressures are exceeded. Rupture Discs are made of stainless steel and fit most extruders that have melt pressure or melt thermocouple vents on the barrel.


Rupture Discs are a safety device that release pressure, should they exceed the pressure that they are manufactured to collapse at. Rupture Discs typical burst pressures are 4000, 4500, 5000, 6500, 7500, and 9500. Normal stem lengths are, 3" and 6" with 1/2- 20 UNF threads and a hex bolt for installation and removal.
