Opti-Gard SoLo rupture disc gains US patent


Developed specifically for low-pressure applications

UK-based pressure relief specialist Elfab has been awarded a US patent for its reverse-acting rupture disc Opti-Gard SoLo.

Opti-Gard SoLo is now both a registered trademark and has been granted patents in the UK, EU and US.

Opti-Gard SoLo has been designed specifically for low-pressure applications from two psig. Featuring a 95% operating-to-burst-pressure ratio and a performance tolerance of just three per cent, Opti-Gard SoLo offers the highest performance characteristics available for liquid, gas or vapour applications, the North Shields, Tyne-and-Wear-based firm said.

Tested to more than 100,000 cycles, SoLo is also said to provide excellent cycle life and leak tightness.

The product is supplied pre-fitted with Integral Flo-Tel, Elfab’s fail-safe non-invasive, magnetic burst-detection system.
