Introduction
‡ Proven technology based on Physical Law ±
Euler¶s Law of Compressed Columns ±
(like the Law of Gravity)
‡ Allows you to solve difficult problems with
pressure relief and emergency shutdown
‡ The technology relies on a simple, precise pin
that senses an axial force and obeys Euler¶s
Law.
‡ The pin acts as a trigger to open or close a
bubble tight valve (ASME class 6) element in
milliseconds.

‡ Conventional spring loaded relief and pilot
valves leak close to set pressure, and have
problems reseating tightly.
‡ Designed to begin relieving at 90% of set
pressure and require 10% over set pressure for
full capacity.
‡ Spring loaded must be recertified at least once a
year. (Depending on State Laws and Company
Policies.)
‡ Poor accuracy below 15 psi, and limited
reliability over 3,000 psi. Rupture Pin valves are
accurate through all pressure ranges.

This valve was built for ARAMCO, the Saudi Arabian oil
company. Notice the two stable conditions of the buckling pin
± straight or buckled.
The pin Mr. Taylor is holding, is 1 1/8´ in diameter and 48´
long. The set pressure of this valve is 36 psig. This illustration
shows that you can¶t tell set pressure by pin size. Pin size is
determined by Euler¶s Law.

pressure

This valve is installed downstream of a compressor because the


pulsation will not fatigue the pin or change the set pressure.
