Flame arresters are used:
to stop the spread of an open fire
to limit the spread of an explosive event that has occurred
to protect potentially explosive mixtures from igniting
to confine fire within an enclosed, controlled, or regulated location
to stop the propagation of a flame travelling at sub-sonic velocities
They are commonly used on:
fuel storage tank vents
fuel gas pipelines
safety storage cabinets for paint, aerosol cans, and other flammable mixtures
the exhaust system of internal combustion engines
the air intake of marine inboard engines
Davy lamps in coal mining
over proof rum and other flammable liquors.
We offer a wide variety of arrestor products with maximum flow to pressure drop characteristics. Our portfolio includes in-line, free vent, high-pressure deflagration and detonation flame arrestors.
