SAFETY IN THE PLANT REMBE Process Safety Highlights

The combination of rupture discs and safety valves New developments in the field of safety valves can actually achieve lower emission levels thanks to high-quality materials and modifications. However, even with the latest types of safety valves, the goal of “zero emissions” can’t be achieved permanently, especially with systems with very aggressive and volatile media.

The solution: rupture disc and safety valve – the advantages of this combination are multiple and, above all, economically very attractive. It is a method of increasing the leak-tightness both for new systems and for retrofitting existing systems. It consists of a rupture disc upstream of the safety valve, which meets the requirements for permanent leak-tightness are met and in addition, the highest possible system availability is achieved through long maintenance intervals. The leak-tightness of a high-quality rupture disc is always higher than that of a safety valve. This is due to various differences such as for example the construction and pressure resistance. In addition to cost savings when purchasing the fittings, suitable rupture disks also offer the desired leak-tightness and, if the appropriate materials (e.g. nickel or tantalum) are used long-term corrosion resistance.

Rupture disc KUB

REMBE has developed a unique two-layered reverse acting rupture disc: KUB. The design has a unique construction which makes it the most robust rupture disc on the market – it is also simple to remove and reinstall.

The KUB mechanism is based on the buckling-pin principle discovered by Leonard Euler. The fact that the REMBE response

pressures are accurately defined by Euler’s buckling-pins engineered and positioned by state-of-the-art laser technology, means that end users can operate their plants safe in the knowledge that rouge emissions are now eliminated.

KUB is the ideal solution for a wide range of challenging industrial processes with low to high operating pressures or vacuum, e.g. in liquid, gas or vapour applications as well as in two-phase flow applications.

Sublimated Forward Acting Rupture Disc - SFD

The forward acting rupture disc SFD, manufactured with unique Contour Precision Lasering (CPL) is suitable for different process conditions. The low profile design of the rupture disc is excellent for combination with pressure relief valves. The innovative

manufacturing technology of the SFD providing long-term reliability and

minimizes downtimes caused by unwanted, premature response due to, for example, corrosion.

REMBE Authorized Partner Programme The best pressure relief is ineffective, when it is not correctly installed, maintained or replaced. Therefore, regular training of own staff or the selection of the right service company are crucial. Not just to avoid monetary losses due to damaged relief devices, but particularly to guarantee the safety of the system and the employees.

The REMBE Authorized Partner Programme is aimed at operators, as well as workshops and service companies, which are responsible for the installation, maintenance and servicing of rupture discs. In addition to regular training courses, the programme events offer the participants the opportunity to compare notes.

Service companies can have themselves audited. Presently, the Nopa Industriearmaturen GmbH, Bilfinger Maintenance GmbH, InfraServ Gendorf Technik GmbH, InfraServ Wiesbaden Technik GmbH & Co. KG, Yncoris GmbH & Co. KG, Bardenhagen Maschinenbau und Dienstleistungs GmbH & Co. KG and Bielenberg GmbH companies are certified as REMBE Authorized Partners in Germany.
