Laser sublimation and IP technology form the foundation of Rembe’s new single layer IKB Reverse Acting Bursting Disc. The opening characteristics and the relief area of the IKB bursting disc are pre-defined. The rupture disc’s material characteristics and its microstructural properties are not altered and the IKB does not fragment. Kinetic energy is “stored“ in the IKB rupture disc. When the burst pressure is reached, IKB transforms this energy and gives full bore opening as the energy is released. This eliminates the need for pre-weakened scores or space-consuming downstream knives.
The IKB can be deployed in sterile applications within the food industry and biotechnology, in pressurized facilities in the pharmaceutical industry and in process equipment found in the chemical and petrochemical industry. The Rembe IKB Reverse Acting Bursting Disc offers protection for safeguarding pressure apparatus such as tanks, piping and reactors.
