  • Policy on Stable Detonation Flame Arresters

    Because unstable detonation arresters are designed and tested under the worst case conditions that any arrester is likely to experience for a given gas-group and initial pressure, the physical location of a device within a piping system relative to the ignition source is not subject to any restrictions (except in locations where endurance burning may occur). This is not the case for a stable ...
