Custom Engineered Solutions
Some pressure relief challenges fall outside of what is considered “standard.” Equipped with an experienced team of pressure relief experts, an on-site ASME-certified flow characteristics lab and more experience in the industry than anyone else, Fike can solve any of your unique pressure-related problems.
What We Offer
1. Sizes, Pressures & Temps
During the last 75 years we’ve protected unique applications requiring rupture discs of extremely small (⅛”) and large sizes (42”), lighter materials, corrosion-resistant materials and extreme burst pressure and temperatures. Other critical factors including response time and leakage requirements are all examined to meet your specific needs.
Each application has unique temperature and chemical requirements which typically dictates the material offering. Fike offers standard materials (stainless steel, nickel, Inconel®, Monel®) for normal processes and more specialized materials (tantalum, Hastelloy®, titanium, gold, silver, brass) for processes which are more challenging on standard materials or may require corrosion resistance.
We’ve engineered solutions for aerospace and military applications, MRI coolant lines, hydrogen applications, water filtration machines, downhole oil tools and many other challenging situations. If you represent an original equipment manufacturer or industrial process, we are ready to fulfill any of your unique needs.
4. Testing & Validation
Fike’s comprehensive Test Lab allows us to simulate various customer-specific applications and processes including cyclic conditions, back-pressure and vacuum, and non-fragmentation. The lab is equipped with cycle testers, leak-testing equipment, environmental chambers, an ASME-certified flow test rig, test tooling in a large range of sizes and volumes, and more – all used to ensure product reliability.
Custom-engineered products are available for applications where Fike standard rupture discs and holders require modifications or complete re-engineering to meet your unique needs. These original products are “plug and play,” meaning the end product is a complete unit that fits directly into your process and is ready to do its job as designed.
