“cootertwo”When the disc blew in my Yong Heng, I just installed 2 of the replacement discs, no more problem.


I would advise not doubling up the burst disc. It’s the same as using a nail to stop an elictrical fuse blowing. It may stop it tripping out but unless you know the cause, you run the risk of having a fire. In this case you risk an explosion. Using two disks will raise the burst pressure to over 10000 PSI, you might as well just use a stopper if you don’t want a safety device.
