Portable Disc Installation Aid Receives ATEX Approval

August 19, 2008
Elfab, Europe’s leading manufacturer of rupture discs, has been awarded ATEX approval for its rupture disc installation aid, Test-Tel. Test-Tel is designed to confirm correct disk installation, as well as ensuring the proper fitting of the ATEX-approved Flo-Tel+ detection system.
Test-Tel is a low-cost portable tool that can eliminate the risk of poorly fitted rupture disks or incorrectly wired detection systems. With a range of test methods, including disk status check, detection check and battery check, it is a first in the rupture disk industry.

Now with ATEX zone 0 and intrinsically safe approvals, the product is safe to use even in the most explosive operating conditions. Simple to use, it is proving advantageous at the rupture disk installation stage, ensuring a proper first-time approach that saves customers time and refitting costs. For maintenance managers, it ensures accurate burst control and continuous device function, allowing for foolproof non-invasive checking of alarms.
