The Large Atlas rupture disc is an extension of Fike's Atlas product offering. Large Atlas utilizes the proven and patented G2 manufacturing technology to produce rupture discs with enhanced performance characteristics including, high burst tolerances, full vacuum/back pressure resistance, 95% operating ratio, and large standard burst pressure offering.
The Large Atlas is a solution where safety relief valves are not a viable alternative and holders with knife blades are no longer desired. The Large Atlas is ideal for a wide range of applications and markets, including chemical and manufacturing.
"Pressure relief is the last-line-of-defense for industries working with high pressure applications," said Bob Korn, director of sales and marketing, industrial protection. "The Atlas and Large Atlas rupture discs provide industry-leading safety performance for these critical processes."
All disc families in the G2 product line represent a clean break from traditional disc manufacturing processes. The engineering methods used to develop and validate these products have provided high performance characteristics across all pressure, material, and size configurations. The advanced automated processes defining the G2 technology increase lot to lot consistency, helping to provide fast, economical solutions with its improved reliability.
Features of the Large Atlas include a non-fragmenting opening, high back pressure resistance, excellent cyclic durability, and the ability to operate in vapor and gas applications (with a minimum free vapor volume) to help keep maintenance costs low.
