1 DCP Mewbourn II Rupture Disc - Recordable Incident

2 Incident Description IE was installing a cap on a 1" by-pass line at the pig launcher outside of barricade (approximately 70' away) from the outlet side of the blow down piping / rupture disc process. At approximately 1:50am the 20' line reached the rupture disc blowout pressure and ruptured. IE was in direct line of fire with the outlet side of the pipe. When the disc ruptured the IE bent down and covered his head when he heard the "boom" from the blow down. IE then noticed that something had struck his left arm. IE was escorted to the safety trailer, then escorted to the ER in Greeley.
