Keith Avila, General Manager of Fike said; “We understand how invaluable process systems are across numerous industries and we work hard to provide the most effective solutions that eliminate the risk of potential disasters. We are seeing a real surge in demand from customers as they realise the significant monetary and safety benefits that can be achieved by combining bursting discs with pressure relief valves.”
For Fike – and as industry best practice – it is seen as imperative that process systems are installed with pressure relief valves in order to prevent pressures exceeding the Max Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP). Without the protection of a pressure relief device there is real potential for serious injury, mechanical/equipment damage, loss of product and production time as well as physical damage that can occur due to over pressurisation of a process system.
根据菲克的说法，串联或并联泄爆片的好处很多。 串联使用时，阀门可以防止潜在的腐蚀性或聚合介质侵入阀门并阻止其运行; 这也意味着如果阀门日常接触这种介质，可以用不太特殊的材料制造阀门。
In parallel use where over pressurisation occurs and the relief valve cannot effectively reduce the pressure – potentially due to malfunction, blockage or excessive generation of pressures – a bursting disc will allow the pressure to continue to rise until it reaches the set pressure on the disc. Upon reaching this, the bursting disc is activated and pressure released. Ultimately, the bursting disc acts as a back-up, providing an additional relief path for the overpressure. As such, offering the safest and most cost-effective solution to protect a process system, should an overpressure situation occur.
Keith said: “Maintaining a process system to operate at its full potential is costly and our customers are noticing the difference in having the additional bursting disc for protection, not only in terms of cost but also in terms of increased productivity and reduced downtime.”
Compliant with global code regulations, Fike’s range of pressure relief products are designed to meet or exceed industry requirements in terms of bursting disc performance, reliability and quality. Trained specialists at Fike are able to offer expert advice on the most effective solutions to enable companies to obtain the highest safety standards, lower costs to help achieve higher profitability whilst always ensuring a smoother production process.
Fike is a globally recognised company with almost 70 years’ experience in supplying products and services to protect people and critical assets from fire, explosion and over-pressurisation.
