Instantaneous overpressure protection from Continental Disc Corporation

Continental Disc's rupture discs (bursting discs) function as a pre-designed "weak point" in a pressurized system, and they should be the strongest part of your pressure protection system. These rupture discs utilize innovative, patented designs, the highest quality materials from traceable sources, and ISO 9001 manufacturing procedures performed by skilled craftsmen.

Continental Disc's vent panels are designed to provide instantaneous overpressure protection for pressurized equipment like dust collectors, driers, silos, spreaders, elevators, air scrubbers, sieves, and other various types of dry, bulk handling and storage equipment.
