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.

Several of Elfab’s customers are now implementing a stock rationalisation programme to standardise their current stock holding of rupture discs, resulting in improved efficiency and reduced costs. A less complex stock management process also enhances overall traceability within the system.

Elfab is conducting joint site surveys to review its customer’s existing rupture disc specifications and offering recommendations to rationalise their stock parts. The replacement of old rupture discs with the latest designs enables obsolete stock to be removed and ensures all installations are kept up to date.

Due to high operating ratios and tighter tolerances offered by Elfab’s Opti-Gard™, this industry-leading reverse-acting rupture disc can replace a wide range of disc specifications to reduce purchase spend over time; less disc variety and greater batch quantities mean that Elfab customers are benefitting from greater economies of scale with their pressure relief devices.

Opti-Gard™ boasts an industry-leading 3% burst tolerance and up to a 97% Operating Ratio. By making the most of these latest improvements in rupture disc technology, stock variety can be reduced by up to 60%.

The implementation this gradual stock profile change in partnership with a leading manufacturer in its field, can now offer a permanent solution to many common stock problems.
