The best Flashback Arrestors in the world

  • a large surface area flame arrestor FA of stainless steel construction extinguishes any dangerous flashback entering the device in any direction
  • a temperature sensitive cut-off valve TV extinguishes sustained flashbacks long before the internal temperature of the arrestor reaches a dangerous level
  • a spring loaded non-return valve NV prevents slow or sudden reverse gas flow from forming explosive mixtures in the gas supply
  • a filter at the gas inlet protects the arrestor against dirtcontamination, extending the service life
  • a pressure relief valve RV vents excessive pressure and soot into the atmosphere, protecting the hose from bursting and the flame arrestor from clogging up, thus maintaining the flow rate (Model RF53DN only)
