Question: Using NACE MR0175-ISO 15156-1, Clause 5, Paragraph 9 and NACE Interpretation MP INQUIRY #2009-05 Part 1 as references. Based on the fact that most metal rupture discs are plastically deformed during manufacturing and all metal rupture discs plastically deform when they burst, are metal rupture discs outside of the scope of NACE MR0175-ISO 15156?
