Flame Arrestors are installed in tanks where low flash-point solvents must be protected against fire and explosion from exterior sources of ignition. Flame Arrestors are generally installed under conditions of moderate atmospheric exposures or limitations of space for installation. Flame Arrestors are offered in several styles and sizes and materials of construction:
Mushroom Vent with Circular Plate-Type
Sizes 1” – 4” in Aluminum & Stainless Steel
Vent-Line with Circular Plate Type
Sizes 1” – 12” in Alum., D.Iron, Stainless Steel Rectangular Plate-Type with Weatherhood
Sizes 2” – 8” in Alum., D. Iron, Stainless Steel
Bi-Directional Overdriven/Unstable Detonation
Sizes 2” – 24” in Steel, S. Steel & Alloy C276
Rupture Disks and disk sensors offer over-pressure protection situation in tanks and piping. Disks and sensors both come in a large variety of materials, including 316 Stainless Steel, Nickel 200/201, Inconel 600, Monel 400, and Hastelloy C-276 for highly corrosive environments. Standard materials for disk holders are 316L Stainless Steel. Depending on service, sizes range from 1” through 24” and burst pressures from 5 – 5000 PSIG in non-fragmenting service.
Also available are Rupture Disk Management systems, which collect pressure and temperature data at the rupture disk device, analyses the information and provides users with alarms and warnings when it is appropriate for service and maintenance, while also providing immediate indication of when a rupture disk has burst.
