CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, U.S. — REMBE announced on March 16 its new addition to its product line-up of signaling devices for process safety. The Rembe NIMU (non-invasive monitoring unit) is a non-invasive rupture disc monitoring unit that provides information about the way the bursting disc responds to positive and negative pressure.
NIMU is installed in a blind tapping in the outlet section of the rupture disc holder, thus isolating it from the process medium. This signaling method is suited for critical processes and applications which require the entire system to be completely impermeable.
NIMU is a reusable system. After a rupture disc is opened, only the rupture disc itself must be replaced. Should NIMU need to be serviced or replaced, this can be done without opening the pipeline.
NIMU is based on tried and tested, intrinsically safe, closed circuit technology so it can be easily integrated into an existing process control system, using terminal boxes and isolating amplifiers, the company said. It also meets all certification and zoning requirements.
