Elfab, a European manufacturer of rupture discs now marketing its products in the United States, has been awarded ATEX approval for Test-Tel, its rupture disc installation aid. Test-Tel is designed to confirm correct disk installation, as well as ensure the proper fitting of the ATEX-approved detection system, Flo-Tel+.
