rupture pin technology history

In 1986, Shell and Exxon came to Mr. Julian Taylor of Taylor Tools and asked him to solve a serious problem with pilot operated valves that were failing to operate 5% of the time. The set pressure was 83 bar (1220 psi) and the tolerance was +/-1.5%. This tolerance was not possible with conventional methods.

Mr. Taylor developed the Rupture Pin pressure relief valve. This Rupture Pin valve was used in parallel with the existing pilot operated valves. He used Euler’s Law of Compressed Columns to meet the stringent requirements handed to him.
