Sept. 28, 2015
Fike Large Atlas Rupture Disc is suited for chemical and oil and gas use.

The Large Atlas rupture disc, an extension of Fike's Atlas product line, provides performance characteristics including burst tolerances, full vacuum/back pressure resistance, 95% operating ratio and large standard burst pressure offering, according to the company. The Large Atlas reportedly offers a solution where safety relief valves are not a viable alternative and holders with knife blades are no longer desired. The Large Atlas is suited for applications including chemical manufacturing, oil and gas and refineries.

The Large Atlas features a non-fragmenting opening, high back pressure resistance, cyclic durability and the ability to operate in vapor and gas applications (with a minimum free vapor volume), according to Fike.
