Flame arresters and detonation arresters are passive,
mechanical device installed on a storage tank nozzle
or in a flammable vapor piping system.
The arresters' functions are: (1) to allow the passage of vapor
under normal operating conditions and (2) to stop and extinguish
any flame front propagating through the flammable vapor/air mixture
under emergency conditions.
Stopping the flame protects the storage tank, or the equipment located
in the piping system, from the catastrophic damage that may result from an uncontrolled ignition
A variety of arrester designs are available. The choice of a proper arrester depends on factors
such as the location of the arrester with respect to the ignition source and the flammable
properties of the vapor/air mixture.
