Burst pressure

The pressure at which a membrane or filter device will rupture.

FAQ
Burst pressure is the pressure at which a membrane or filter device will rupture. The environment and other factors can have an impact in pipe failure; making designing pressure vessels a complex process.
The pressure at which 99.9% of balloons are able to survive with a 95% confidence rate is known as the rated burst pressure. If the balloon itself fails to stay intact at the RBP the device could fail or there could be potential vessel damage.
The maximum allowable operating pressure can be known as the maximum pressure according to design codes that can be handled by the weakest vessel. Fabricating pressurized equipment often uses standard wall thickness components, therefore are able to endure pressures above their normal limit.
The pressure taken by a vessel or tube to deform due to differential pressure from the outside the inside of the tube or vessel. The rating of the collapse pressure of an ideal round tube is high.
