Elfab improves the efficiency of its customers’ stock management to reduce long-term costs

Stock rationalisation reduces rupture disc variation and introduces the latest technology

Rupture disc specifications are often generated independently for new projects by different departments within an organization, or by external contractors. As a result, identical or very similar specifications are created without reference to existing records or stock. This can result is higher inventory and a larger rupture disc variety, which can be difficult to manage for even the most efficient of purchasing departments.

Omega – Ultrasonic Leak Detector

Ultrasonic sound (20 to 100 kHz) is generated by turbulence created by air or a gas forced through a small orifice. Ultrasonic sound is very directional in nature and can be used to pinpoint the exact location of the leak point. Leaking air or gas is generally considered to be viscous flow and as the flow velocity increases, the frequency of the ultrasonic sound emitted will become higher.
