Why Storagetech Flame Arresters?

Flame arresters are critical safety devices that are used in many processes that contain risk elements such as flammable liquids and gases. A possible explosion risk related with possible ignition of flammable vapours may cause unintended and irreversible consequences, herewith system designers and/or engineers should take precautions against potential accidents. At this point StorageTech provides the high quality and reliable solution for your need with its StorageTech Model Number 300 Flame Arrester. The Model 300 deflagration flame arrester is suitable for quenching subsonic flames and should be mounted in the vertical plane, close to the source of any potential ignition. It stops the fire, limits the spread of explosion and stops the propagation of a flame with its flame barrier that consists large number of defined passage gaps, whose gap cross section is set withregard to the properties of the flowing gas. It is in-line and specifically designed for pipeline systems. The element comprises a tightly rolled scroll or scrolls of crimped stainless steel ribbon to form passages through which the vapour passes.

Behind the all products we produce, there is 40 years engineering expertise and insights we get from hundreds of happy customers around the globe. In this regard, we powered the best solution for your safety need with the following features:

  • StorageTech™ PW Model 300 intemal materials are AISI 316 or 304 stainless steel.
  • Easy to clean internal materials
  • Easy to install. You do not need a special tool or experience to install the StorageTech Flame Arrester Model 300.
  • StorageTech™ PVV Model 300 comes with the paint color you choose.
  • Standard manufacturing comes with API 150 class flange; however other flange types are available on request.
  • Protection cap is manufactured from aluminum material.

We have also many outstanding additional features. We use high quality flame arrester elements to prevent corrosion and increase the durability of the discs. Reverse winding technology provide better protection by extending the path for flame. Storagetech™ Flame Arrester Model 300 has durable and robust design to prevent flame and shock waves which maybe transferred through the pipeline. It is easy to remove, maintain and assembling. Storagetech™ Flame Arresters provides ~ 30% less pressure drop compared to ordinary flame arresters with its unique technologies. PTFE coating paint, protects against weather conditions; increases life time, and decreases maintenance cost

All Storagetech™ Flame Arresters are ATEX certified for up to 18’’ Storagetech™ Flame Arresters; design, engineering and tests are carried out according to ASME and EN norms as well as international codes as per client specs. ASME U-Stamp, PED Certification, MILLTest Certification and code compliant productions can be performed.

A flame arrestor is a safety device that is used to prevent the spread of flames in a system or vessel. It is typically installed in the ventilation system of a storage tank or vessel, where it prevents flames from entering the tank or vessel through the ventilation system. The flame arrestor works by allowing gas or vapor to flow through it, while blocking the passage of flames.

Flame arrestors are commonly used in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, chemical processing, and storage tank manufacturing. They are particularly important in situations where flammable gases or vapors are present, as they can help to prevent fires and explosions. Flame arrestors are available in a range of sizes and designs to meet the specific needs of different applications. They can be used in conjunction with other safety devices, such as pressure relief valves and pressure vacuum valves, to provide a comprehensive safety system for storage tanks and vessels.

Flame arrestors are typically used in situations where there is a risk of flames entering a system or vessel through the ventilation system. They are commonly used in storage tanks and vessels that contain flammable liquids or gases, as well as in pipelines and process equipment. Some common applications for flame arrestors include:

Storage tanks and vessels: Flame arrestors are often used in storage tanks and vessels that contain flammable liquids or gases, such as crude oil, gasoline, and propane. They are designed to prevent the spread of flames through the ventilation system, helping to prevent fires and explosions.

Pipelines: Flame arrestors are also used in pipelines to prevent the spread of flames in the event of a gas leak or explosion. They are typically installed at strategic points along the pipeline, such as at intersections or near flammable materials.

Process equipment: Flame arrestors are also used in process equipment, such as distillation columns, reactors, and heat exchangers, to prevent the spread of flames in the event of a fire or explosion.

In addition to these applications, flame arrestors can also be used in other systems and equipment where there is a risk of flames entering through the ventilation system. They are an important safety device that can help to prevent fires and explosions, ensuring the safety of personnel and equipment.

There are two types of flame propagation that a flame arrestor may be designed to protect against: deflagration and detonation.

Deflagration is a type of flame propagation that involves the rapid combustion of a flammable gas or vapor. It typically occurs when a gas or vapor is mixed with air in the proper proportions and ignited, causing the mixture to burn rapidly. Deflagrations are characterized by relatively low pressure and slow flame speeds, and they are typically not as destructive as detonations.

Detonation is a more severe type of flame propagation that involves the rapid combustion of a gas or vapor. It typically occurs when a gas or vapor is mixed with air in the proper proportions and ignited, causing the mixture to burn at a much faster rate than a deflagration. Detonations are characterized by high pressure and very fast flame speeds, and they can be extremely destructive.

Flame arrestors are designed to protect against both deflagrations and detonations, depending on the specific requirements of the application. They are typically rated for a specific maximum flame speed and pressure, and they are designed to prevent flames from spreading beyond a certain point. Flame arrestors are an important safety device that can help to prevent fires and explosions in storage tanks and vessels, pipelines, and other systems and equipment.
