Pressure Relief Valves & Flame Arresters
Elmac Technologies’ Flame Arresters are static devices that allow flow into or between enclosures whilst preventing flame transmission, thus protecting processes from the potentially catastrophic effects of an explosion. Different types of Flame Arresters are required depending on installation positioning, operating conditions and Explosion Groups.
The Elmac range of Flame Arresters comprises three main types:
- In-line Deflagration Arresters
- End-of-line Deflagration Arresters
- In-line Unstable Detonation Arresters – used to prevent worst-case scenario explosions
Flame Arresters are installed by contractors, OEMs and Operators in order to provide protection against explosions in a wide range of applications including: oil & gas, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, bio-fuels and distilleries. Our range of ATEX accredited flame arresters and pressure relief valves is designed and manufactured in the UK and have been independently flame and explosion type-tested and certified. All flame arresters and pressure relief valves are tested to the latest EN ISO 16852, the European Standard for flame arresters which provides for a significant safety margin in typical operating conditions.
