Advanced lithium ion batteries are manufactured for the automotive, marine, RV, and many more industries. ZOOK rupture disks provide over-pressure relief for advanced lithium batteries in the event of an abnormal rise in the internal pressure in the battery.
Reactors & Process Vessels
A chemical reactor is an enclosed volume in which a chemical reaction takes place and is generally understood to be a process vessel used to carry out a chemical reaction. Whether a batch or continuous reactor vessel, chemical reactions often result in the release of gases or the generation of heat, which in either situation, increase internal vessel pressure. To insure the integrity of the vessel, connected piping, valves and process instrumentation, rupture disks provide safe release of excess pressure.
A Chiller is a machine that removes heat from a liquid via a vapor-compression or absorption refrigeration cycle. This liquid can then be circulated through a heat exchanger to cool equipment, or another process stream. There are several methods used to compress the refrigerant gas during the vapor-compression cycle. Rupture disks provide protection against over pressurization.
Heat exchangers are used to transfer heat between as solid object and a fluid or from one fluid to another. The fluids may liquids or gas and typically separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing. Used in a broad range of industries including chemical, power generation, refining and waste treatment, the safety concerns regarding over-pressurization heat exchangers, steam jacketed vessels and piping, just to name a few, are addressed using rupture disks.
Bulk Storage Tanks
Storage tanks containing raw materials, as well as finished processed chemical products require protection against over-pressurization. Liquid, gas and dry chemicals can be flammable, corrosive, and extremely hazardous to people and the environment. stored and transported in compressed form in pressurized containers under high pressure. Dry products, such as fertilizers, processed grains, and thermoplastic beads stored in silos, can produce explosive dust.
Safety Relief Valve Isolation
A safety relief valve automatically releases pressure from a boiler, pressure vessel, or other system, when the pressure or temperature exceeds preset limits. A rupture disk is an excellent solution for isolating the pressure relief valve from a chemical process when the process fluid is highly corrosive to the relief valve’s internal components. In addition, using a rupture disk in combination with a relief valve provides zero process leakage through the safety valve and extends the life of the safety valve, as well.
