The Model BP420 burst plugs are designed specifically for use in plastic extrusion systems. The Model BP420 will instantaneously rupture at a specific, predetermined pressure and temperature. Each one piece assembly consists of a 304 stainless steel body with a welded Inconel rupture disk. May be specified for primary relief in applications where pressure build-up can occur so rapidly that the response time of a relief valve is inadequate, such as in a polymerization reaction vessel.
The BP520 series of pressure fuses have a "pop-up" indicator cap. A fine conductor passes through the construction of the fuse and the indicator cover of the part, which, when the fuse is activated or by emergency release of pressure, pushes out the fuse cover and thus disconnects (ruptures) the tested conductor.
