CDC Reverse Acting Rupture Discs

Continental Disk Logo

Overview

Reverse acting rupture discs are oriented in a system with the process media pressure against the convex side of the disc, placing the disc in compression.  As the burst pressure rating of the disc is reached, the compression loading on the rupture disc causes it to reverse, snapping through the neutral position and causing it to open by a predetermined scoring pattern. Continental Disc Corporation offers a variety of reverse acting rupture discs.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
