Wire diameter – Besides the packing density it is the wire diameter which has a decisive influence on the separation efficiency of a demister. For high-grade steels, STRIKO process technology usually uses a wire diameter of 0.14 and 0.28 mm.
Work ratio – Ratio of working pressure (of a bursting disc) to bursting pressure (of a bursting disc) expressed as a percentage. The work ratio depends both on the material and on the construction of the bursting disc and ranges between 50 and 90 percent.
Working pressure (maximum) – Maximum pressure at which the bursting disc reaches its longest durability. The working pressure is calculated by multiplying the minimum bursting pressure by the work ratio. In case the maximum work pressure is exceeded, the bursting disc may suffer initial damages which can lead to a premature reacting / opening of the bursting disc.
