Flame Arrestors


Flame arresters are used as protection against explosions by preventing the transmission of flame and explosion transfer in machines, equipment and plant, containing inflammable gas or steam-air mixtures of inflammable liquids. These autonomous safety systems limit the effects of the explosions, rendering them harmless, they are intended to allow flow but prevent flame transmission.

IG Equipment manufactures of inline and end of line flame arrestors to prevent propagation of flames in gas or vapor mixtures. Our arresters are available as complete units ready for direct installation into piping systems as both detonation or retractable types.

Flame arresters should be installed between ignition sources and vital equipment. Also, it should be installed along with all pressure and vacuum relief valves on the digester roof to prevent external flames from igniting gas inside the tank.
