DR/ES (series 2)

In-Line Detonation Flame Arrester
for stable detonations and deflagrations in right angle design with shock absorber, unidirectional

Función y Descripción

The PROTEGO® DR/ES in-line detonation flame arrester has been used for decades in industrial plant construction because its right angle design offers advantages towards maintenance and costs in comparison to most straight designs.

Once a detonation enters the device, energy is absorbed from the detonation shock wave by the integrated shock absorber (1) before the flame is extinguished in the narrow gaps of the FLAMEFILTER® (3).

The PROTEGO® flame arrester unit (2) consists of several FLAMEFILTER® discs and spacers firmly held in the FLAMEFILTER® cage (4). The gap size and number of FLAMEFILTER® discs are determined by the operating data of the mixture flowing in the line (explosion group, pressure, temperature). This device is approved for explosion groups from IIA to IIB3 (NEC group D to C MESG ≥ 0.65 mm).

The PROTEGO® DR/ES series 2 was developed for higher flow performance at small flange connection. It is approved at an operating temperature up to +60°C / 140°F and an absolute operating pressure up to 1.2 bar / 17.4 psi. Devices with Special approvals can be obtained for higher pressures and higher temperatures upon request.

Type-approved in accordance with the current ATEX Directive and EN ISO 16852 as well as other international standards.

Características especiales y ventajas

  • minimum number of FLAMEFILTER® discs due to the effective shock absorber
  • quick removal and installation of the complete PROTEGO® flame arrester unit and FLAMEFILTER® discs in the cage
  • due to modular design the FLAMEFILTER® discs can be individually replaced
  • the right angle design saves pipe elbows
  • extended application range for higher operating temperatures and pressures
  • high flow performance at small flange connection
  • minimum pressure loss and hence low operating and lifecycle cost
  • cost efficient spare parts

Diagrama de flujo volumétrico

Los diagramas de flujo volumétrico han sido determinados con un banco de pruebas de caudal calibrado y certifi - cado por TÜV. El flujo volumétrico V. en [m³/h] y el CFH se refi eren a las condiciones estándar de referencia de aire según ISO 6358 (20°C, 1bar). La conversión a otras densidades y temperaturas están referidas en el Vol. 1: “Fundamentos Técnicos”.
