In recent years safety disks based on the principle of the reverse buckling of a spherical, metallic cap have been developed. In this paper the influence on the disk-buckling pressure of (1) the orifice diameter of the flange-holding ring and (2) heat treatment of the dome before assembly is examined. It is found that both orifice diameter and heat treatment influence the value of the reverse-buckling pressure.
