1,000,000 Cycles and Beyond

Date: Aug 18, 2016

One of Oseco's New Product Development Teams reached a new milestone this week as they successfully tested a new product with patent-pending technology to 1,000,000 cycles in-house. The team got together to count down the final cycles leading up to 1,000,000 when the cycle counter would roll back over to zeroes from 999,999.

Immediately after the millionth cycle, the team performed a destructive test break on the assembly to confirm that such strenuous cycling did not alter the nominal burst pressure of 95 psig @ 72o F. After cycling, the tested rupture disc burst at 95.46 psig, showing that it withstood the cycling without issue while maintaining precision of burst pressure calibration. The team celebrated their success with cake!
