Education, Government & Hospital Facilities


Boilers which produce steam for heating and hot water for personnel use, as well as steam and hot water piping systems utilize ZOOK rupture disks to protect over-pressure conditions. Cooling Systems, which operate under pressure, benefit from the protection against over-pressure conditions provided by ZOOK rupture disks.

Power Plants

Larger Government buildings, College Universities, and Hospitals often have their own power plants and cogeneration facilities to provide heating and cooling, as well as electric power services. Like their larger municipal counterparts, bulk fuel storage tanks, boilers, steam piping, and cooling towers use Rupture disks from ZOOK to ensure systems maintain safe operating pressure levels.

Wastewater Treatment

Similar to large municipal wastewater treatment facilities, many government, colleges, and hospitals have small wastewater treatment facilities to decrease the burden of treatment by municipal facilities. Most of the processes in these facilities are driven by pumps, and protection from excessive backpressure is provided by ZOOK rupture disks.

Compressed and Cryogenic Gas Containment

Many gases are used in the hospital environment including oxygen for resuscitation and inhalation therapy, CO2 for respiratory stimulation during and after anesthesia, Nitrogen (stored as a cryogenic liquid) for cryosurgery and tissue storage, and Nitrous Oxide for both an anesthetic and analgesic. All of these, transported and stored using cylinders and pressurized bulk containment, benefit from the protection provided by ZOOK rupture disks in the event of an over-pressure condition.

Safety Relief Valve Isolation

A safety relief valve automatically releases pressure from a boiler, pressure vessel, or other system, when the pressure or temperature exceeds preset limits. A rupture disk is an excellent solution for isolating the pressure relief valve from a chemical process when the process fluid is highly corrosive to the relief valve’s internal components. In addition, using a rupture disk in combination with a relief valve provides zero process leakage through the safety valve and extends the life of the safety valve, as well.


There are many other pressure relief applications we provide to Education, Government & Hospital Facilities. Please contact ZOOK for applications not listed.
