The IKB® was developed to provide reliable protection against excessive overpressure and vacuum in equipment such as pressure vessels, gas cylinders, pipe systems and reactors. It is suitable for applications with gas, steam and liquids (if there is a gas cushion upstream the rupture disc) as well as for isolating safety valves. IKB® permits a standard operating ratio of up to 95 % (depending on the specific application).
The patented manufacturing process produces an full and fragmentation-free opening across the full width of the vent. A high quality rupture disc produced without the need for mechanical scoring or knife constructions. This ensures exceptionally high resistance even under cyclic loads.
