Flame and detonation arrester, although similar in construction, serve two very distinct purposes. Here answer some of the most common questions asked about flame and detonation arresters.
A flame arrester is a safety device that is used on the pipeline or end of the line to block any fire or explosion passage through the line. There are mainly two types of flame arrester; detonation and deflagration.
Detonation flame arrester is designed to overcome any sudden explosion impact in the pipeline, whereas deflagration is flame arrester is designed to block any fire flame in a particular location to stop fire to travel in the pipeline freely.
Storagetech technical team is experienced to choose which type of flame arrester is required for a particular application. Even though there are many factors to choose, mainly location, product stored, and pipeline/piping design plays an important role.
