In-Line Detonation Flame Arrester
Function and Description
The in-line detonation flame arresters type PROTEGO® DA-SB are the newest generation of flame arresters. On the basis of fluid dynamic, explosion dynamics calculation and decades of experience from field tests, a product line was developed that offers minimum pressure loss and maximum safety. The flame arrester uses the Shock Wave Guide Tube Effect (SWGTE) to separate the flame front and shock wave. The result is an in-line detonation arrester without a classic shock absorber; in addition the use of FLAMEFILTER® discs is minimized.
The devices are symmetrical and offer bidirectional flame arresting for deflagrations and stable detonations. The arrester essentially consists of two housing parts with an integrated shock tube (1) and the PROTEGO® flame arrester unit (2) in the center. The PROTEGO® flame arrester unit is modular and consists of several FLAMEFILTER® discs (3) and spacers firmly held in a FLAMEFILTER® cage. The number of FLAMEFILTER ® discs and their gap size depends on the arrester‘s conditions of use.
By indicating the operating parameters such as temperature, pressure and explosion group, and the composition of the fluid, the optimum detonation arrester can be selected from a series of approved devices. The PROTEGO® DA-SB flame arresters are available for all explosion groups.
The standard design can be used up to an operating temperature of +60°C / 140°F and an absolute operating pressure up to 1.1 bar / 15.9 psi. Numerous devices with special approval can be obtained for higher presssures (see table 3) and higher temperatures.Type-approved in accordance with the current ATEX Directive and EN ISO 16852 as well as other international standards.
