Reverse Acting Rupture Disc Unveiled
REMBE's advanced IKB reverse acting bursting disc

Building on its KUB rupture disc technology, REMBE now specializes in laser-sublimation and IP technology. Both of these processes provide the foundation for the advanced IKB reverse acting bursting disc.
Based on sublimation technology, material transition from a solid to gaseous condition, the opening characteristics and the relief area of the IKB bursting disc are pre-defined. The rupture disc’s material characteristics and its microstructural properties are not altered and the IKB does not fragment.

Through the patented IP process, kinetic energy is “stored” in the IKB rupture disc. When the burst pressure is reached, IKB transforms this energy and instantaneously gives full bore opening as the energy is released. This technology allows for a REMBE rupture disc that entirely eliminates the need for pre-weakened scores or space-consuming downstream knives, resulting in reliability and durability.

The IKB can be deployed in sterile applications within the food industry and biotechnology, in pressurized facilities in the pharmaceutical industry and in process equipment found in the chemical and petrochemical industry. The REMBE IKB reverse acting bursting disc provides protection for safeguarding pressure apparatus such as tanks, piping, and reactors, and may be deployed for many purposes.
