Industry first wireless burst detection system, WirelessHART™

Posted by John Hannen


Elfab are the first rupture disc manufacturer to offer a WirelessHART™ burst detection system significantly enhancing its product range. With some of the most technically superior rupture disc solutions on the market, Elfab are leading the industry in pressure management innovation. Since the launch of the wireless burst detection system, Elfab have changed the way in which its customers consider rupture disc monitoring.

Traditional burst detection solutions can involve large investment combined with ongoing maintenance cost. In upgrading rupture disc monitoring to wireless, it offers a cost-effective solution to new and existing sites. Thomas Swan, based in the UK, is a major independent manufacturer of performance and speciality chemicals and have recently benefited from incorporating this wireless solution for all Elfab rupture disc devices. It's Maintenance Manager, John Smithson said, “Being able to integrate rupture disc monitoring into our existing wireless network has offered significant benefits to our plant. The setup and installation process was seamless and I have been impressed by all aspects of the product and its ongoing reliability – the design and the wireless technology offered by Elfab is excellent”.

The switch to wireless enables customers to benefit from the most advanced and cost-effective solution for pressure relief management. By using our wireless technology, customers can expect to eliminate the costs and complexity of additional wiring by saving an estimated 50% of the cost and 90% of the time required to install a conventional wired system. Working closely with process management company, Emerson, it has enabled smooth integration of its wireless burst detection into existing site infrastructure.
