disks are designed for reliable emergency relief of excess pressure since
they instantaneously rupture at a specific predetermined pressure range.
Model BP420 rupture disk is designed specifically for use in plastic
extruders. Each assembly consists of a stainless steel body and rupture
disk. A rupture disk may be specified for primary relief in applications
where pressure build-up can occur so rapidly that the response time of a
relief valve is inadequate, such as in a polymerization reaction vessel.
