New Ferrule Opti-Gard™ rupture disc from Elfab provides high Performance Pressure Relief for Hygienic Applications

June 26, 2012 - Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Leading rupture disc manufacturer Elfab has launched Ferrule Opti-Gard™, an advanced reverse-acting disc designed for use in hygienic and aseptic applications. Ferrule Opti-Gard™ enhances the existing Opti-Gard™ range, the most technically advanced rupture disc available on the market since its initial launch in 2003.

Ferrule Opti-Gard™ features a 95 per cent operating ratio and three per cent tolerance, providing the highest performance characteristics available on the market for hygienic and aseptic installations.

Available in a variety of sizes, and suitable for a range of burst pressures and temperatures, the design is non-fragmenting and capable of supporting vacuum and back pressures. The disc can be used with tri-clamps and ferrules, and has an uninterrupted surface finish to meet FDA approvals, making it ideal for use in CIP and SIP applications.

The design also includes an integral Flo-Tel™+ actuator as standard, offering the added benefit of non-invasive, ATEX- approved rupture detection through the Flo-Tel™+ system.
