Burst Pressure

The burst pressure of a container, tube, or measuring device is the pressure that causes the destruction of the respective component. Burst pressure is a value that should not be reached during normal operation of a process. The aim of measuring and regulating pressure is to prevent the burst pressure point from being reached even in case of problems. The burst pressure value of a measuring device is not identical with the upper end of its measuring range, but should instead be significantly higher.
