  • minimal pressure loss resulting in low operating and lifecycle costs
  • cost-effective spare parts

Función y Descripción

The PROTEGO® DA-CG series of detonation arresters was mainly developed for the North American market and optimized to meet the demands of the US Coast Guard. The devices are symmetrical and offer bi-directional flame arresting for deflagrations and stable and unstable detonations.

The effective shock absorber (1) greatly reduces the speed of incoming detonations. This leads to improved flame extinguishing in the narrow gaps of the FLAMEFILTER® (3).

The flame arrester essentially consists of two housing parts with an integrated shock absorber and the PROTEGO® flame arrester unit (2) in the center. The PROTEGO® flame arrester unit is modular and consists of several FLAMEFILTER® discs and spacers firmly held in a FLAMEFILTER® casing. The number of FLAMEFILTER® discs and their gap size depends on the arrester‘s intended use.

By specifying the operating conditions, such as the temperature, pressure, explosion group, and the composition of the fluid, the optimum in-line detonation flame arrester can be selected. Type PROTEGO® DA-CG flame arresters are available for explosion groups IIA to IIB3 (NEC group D to C MESG ≥ 0.65 mm).

The standard design can be used at an operating temperature of up to +60°C / 140°F and an absolute operating pressure acc. to table 3. Devices with special approvals for higher pressures and higher temperatures are available upon request.

The flame arresters have been approved in accordance with the American Standard 33 CFR part 154 and are accepted by the US Coast Guard.
