Rupture Disc Assemblies, Gauges, and Pressure Switches

Hansen rupture disc assemblies (RDAs) are used to indicate which pressure-relief valve has discharged. A pressure-relief valve will re-seat after discharging. However, a rupture disc remains open after bursting. (A rupture disc is not a stand alone safety device.) An installed pressure gauge or switch (required by code) provides a visual or electronic indication that the rupture disc has burst.
