To ensure proper operation, MPI’s extruder rupture disks must be installed correctly. They must be installed flush with the inner extruder wall with a small recess of approximately 0.020”. Too much dead space can allow the plastic material to harden and form a plug, which can cause the extruder rupture disks to be ineffective and create a safety hazard.
