Principles of Operation
The Elmac Technologies® MB-IB series of microbore Flame Arresters is specially designed for the protection of gas sampling and analysis equipment where flammable vapours are present. Many other applications involving small bore pipework can be protected from explosion risk using microbore arresters.
A flame arrester uses an element with small apertures which allows gas or vapour to pass. If the apertures are smaller than the maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) for the gas or vapour then a flame cannot pass through the arrester, and is subsequently contained or extinguished.
Elmac MB-IB Series of In-Line Flame Arresters are ATEX certified for Explosion Group IIB3.
