Burst Indication Extruder Rupture Disk Option with Thermocouple Jack Burst Plug
Extruder Rupture Disk with Burst Indication (option – BI) offers an inexpensive signal output when the disk ruptures (plug is fitted at the discharge end). A small hole if drilled through the hex head where a small diameter Teflon insulated signal wire is placed through. When a rupture disc discharges, plastic flow causes the plug to pop out and shear the signal wire. This sheared wire can be used to send a signal to the control system to shut the extruder down.

Rupture Disk Extruder (Burst Plugs)
Rupture Disk Extruder (Burst Plugs) are primarily used on Plastics Extrusion Machinery to provide emergency pressure relief. They are designed to instantaneously rupture at a pre-determined pressure. They are leak tight and intrinsically safe devices that require no maintenance.
Burst Plugs assemblies are manufactured from 304 SS and incorporate either an Inconel or Stainless Steel Disk which minimize the affects of varying processing temperatures. The RD Series of Burst Plugs are offered in a wide variety of lengths and configurations. Standard stock assemblies are available in burst pressures ranging from 1,500 up to 15,000 psi, and lengths from 1.82” up to 12”.
Several different mounting threads are offered on the RD Series Burst Plugs that are commonly found on plastics extrusion machinery.
