Bursting temperature

The bursting temperature is the temperature assigned to a bursting pressure corresponding to the expected temperature of the bursting disc at the time of reaction. It is important for designing the bursting disc as the bursting pressure (above all of metallic bursting discs) is heavily dependent on the temperature. In principle, the bursting pressure decreases as the temperature increases – and increases as the temperature drops, – a fact which may pose a corresponding safety risk for the system. For this reason, STRIKO always enquires about the prevailing parameters on the bursting disc at the expected time of reaction.
