Bursting caps and plates are single-component bursting discs made of nickel, nickel-based materials or stainless steel, which are primarily distinguished by their high density. They are used by the millions in CO2 cylinders for pressure protection.
Berstscheiben Schlesinger offers bursting caps and plates in both small and mass production quantities and in the following standard sizes: 7 millimeter, 8.5 millimeter, 10 millimeter and 14.5 millimeter. They withstand pressures between 120 and 700 bar and temperatures between minus 80 and plus 450 degrees Celsius. Regardless of what medium you want – gas, vapor or liquid – we individually tailor the product specifications to your use.
The safe and perfect handling of our products is our highest goal; therefore, we label each bursting cap and each bursting plate with the triggering pressure and the year of production, and if necessary also the batch number. In so doing, we prevent one product from being confused with another.
Another benefit is easy installation. In particular with the bursting caps, inadvertent installation of multiple parts on top of each other is excluded; the bursting cap reliably ruptures at the required bursting pressure. We can economically produce the bursting panels – especially in the case of large quantities – with the same high quality.
