The Model 6A00 inline deflagration flame arrestor is a
device that can be fitted to the opening of an enclosure or
to the connecting pipe work of a system of enclosures. Its
primary function is to allow the flow of gases or vapor of
flammable liquids through the enclosure, but prevent the
transmission of a flame. The element inside the housing
provides an extinguishing barrier to the ignited vapor
mixture by absorbing heat from the flame. The Model
6A00 is used as an independent safety system to ensure
6A00 flame arrestors are designed on the principle of “quenching gap”. The crimped SST metal element allows vapor to pass through in order to allow a vessel to breath, yet prevents the propagation of a flame from the exposed side to the protected side.
Housing Material: Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel.Trim Material: Stainless Steel (1.4571) element.
Standard element is suitable for explosion group IIA1 (D1), IIA (D), IIB1 and group IIB3 (C) flammable gases
and vapors. Elements for other gas groups are available upon request.
