Rembe Introduces IKB Reverse Acting Rupture Disc
Kinetic energy is “stored“ in the IKB reverse acting rupture disc. When the burst pressure is reached, IKB transforms this energy and instantaneously gives full bore opening as the energy is released. This technology eliminates the need for pre-weakened scores or space-consuming downstream knives, resulting in extreme reliability and durability, the company says. The IKB can be deployed in sterile applications, in pressurized facilities in the pharmaceutical industry and in process equipment found in the chemical and petrochemical industry. The IKB safeguards pressure apparatus such as tanks, piping and reactors.
