Eliminating costly process downtime

Published:  22 January, 2015

A traditional maintenance check for a rupture disc device requires the plant to be fully de-pressurised and for processes to be completely stopped, while each disc is removed from its holder and inspected. This system downtime is costing companies thousands in lost production during every maintenance check, particularly in lucrative industries like the oil and gas sector.

Elfab says significant time and cost savings are now being realised by its customers through the use its low-cost, portable, ATEX-approved Test-Tel tool. Said to offer a simple and cost-effective means of checking the status of both the rupture disc and the associated burst detection system, this part of the maintenance schedule can be completed without having to shut down the entire process.

The Test-Tel™ tool can also be used to confirm correct installation of the rupture disc device and its associated detection system.
