Internships Getting practical induction training means experiencing to which extent job expectations turn out true when working in the company. At PROTEGO® you can successfully 'strike the balance' and take a decision that suits you. Our student trainees carry out demanding and job-related tasks; they often commend the company to their fellow students or student trainees. Frequently, they join our company several years later as motivated employees.
Training and Education The chance of getting good training is no longer a matter of fact in these days. All the same, PROTEGO® offers training at world class level. Our trainees with their in part excellent leaving certificates are continuously above the average recorded by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. No matter which field they are trained in (industrial mechanic, technical product designer, office clerk): Our trainees are fully involved in the company's working life from the first day onwards, thusgathering valuable hands-on experience for their future job careers, ideally in our company.

What can we do for you?
The right device for all applications Flame Arresters are subdivided into different types according to the combustion process and by type of installation. Our range of products covers the following: Working principle of Flame Arresters PROTEGO® Flame Arresters in a highly maintenance-friendly design This design prevents the FLAMEFILTER® discs from being damaged or misaligned during assembly or maintenance. These PROTEGO® Flame Arresters are particularly suited to applications where more frequent maintenance of the FLAMEFILTER® is required (e.g., where polymerization or crystallization result in heavy contamination) or for IIC applications. After installation, PROTEGO® units can be retrofitted at any time. Read more Are you interested in a Special Solution? Go to Special Solutions
Standardisation Committees International Standard for Flame Arresters – ISO 16852 As of January 1st, 2011 the EN 12784 was superseded by EN ISO 16852 as a harmonised standard under the Directive 94/9/EC. The ISO Standard ISO 16852 was adopted as a European Standard EN ISO 16852:2010 „Flame arresters – Performance requirements, test methods and limits for use“. It thus supersedes EN 12874 having an identical title. This Standard was not superseded for safety engineering reasons. The new standard was adopted to extend the standard's scope beyond Europe. Flame arresters which conform to EN 12874, hence, continue satisfying the basic safety and health requirements set forth in the Directive 94/9/EC. Work is already in hand to revise the ISO Standard; another update has become necessary to cover in particular the testing of high-velocity vent valves. Standards for venting atmospheric and low-pressure storage tanks - ISO 28300 and API 2000 The international standard ISO 28300 and the standard API 2000, Sixth Edition are identical contentwise and cover the normal venting as well as the normal and emergency vapour venting requirements for aboveground liquid petroleum or petroleum products storage tanks and underground refrigerated storage tanks, designed for operation at pressures from full vacuum through 1.034 barg (15 psig). Discussed in this Standard entitled “Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries - Venting atmospheric and low-pressure storage tanks“, are the causes of overpressure and vacuum; determination of venting requirements; means of venting; selection, and installation of venting devices; and testing and marking of relief devices. This Standard is intended for tanks containing petroleum and petroleum products but is can also be applied to tanks containing other liquids. Safety Design Principles Standards Committee (NASG) Being a multi-subject committee, the NASG is in charge of standardisation work with regard to testing and use of explosion protection devices (except flame arresters). The Directive 94/9/EC is applicable to equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX). This Directive defines basic safety and health requirements that need to be satisfied by manufacturers of such equipment and systems. The NASG takes an active part in formulating standards which put in concrete terms and detail the basic requirements set forth in the Directive. Standardisation covers explosion suppression systems or protection systems for pressure relief, and many more subjects. The PROTEGO® Team has an active share in these standardisation bodies: Germany NA 095-02-01 AA Explosionsschutzeinrichtungen (außer Flammendurchschlagsicherungen) NA 104-02-05 AA     Flammendurchschlagsicherungen und Tanklüftungseinrichtungen NA 132-02-06 AA Schiffsarmaturen NA 104-01-07 AA Tanks aus metallenen Werkstoffen UK BSI - EXL/023 Explosion Protection & Fire Precautions in Industrial & Chemical Plant BSI - EXL/023/01 Flame Arresters – Chair of Flame Arrester Panel Europe CEN TC 305 WG 6 Flame Arresters CEN TC 265 WG 9 Metallic tanks for the storage of liquids  USA API API Committee on pressure relieving systems NFPA NFPA Technical Committee on Explosion Protection Systems China SAC TC208 WG9 Fire and Explosion Protection GB/T20801.6 – 2006 Pressure piping code – Industrial piping – Part 6, Safeguarding Standard Handbook for industrial valves Volume 6: Breather Valves Sinopec Safety Guideline for Tank Farm VOCs Collection and Treatment Safety Standard for Vapor Collection of Tank Farm of Petro- and Chemical industry Sinopec Safety Guideline for Tank Farm VOCs Collection and Treatment International ISO TC 21 WG3 Flame Arresters ISO TC 8  SC3 Ships and marine technology ISO TC 67 SC6 WG12 Pressure-relieving and depressuring systems IEC SC 31 M AHG 3 Protective Systems
Research Partners and Assignments Research Assignments Explosion hazards occur in most varied applications, and often cannot be reliably ruled out. Therefore, use of flame arresters is called for wherever it is desirable to minimise explosion risks. The multitude of applications is also reflected in our research assignments in most varied fields of use: for aeroplanes, helicopters and motor cars for renewable raw materials and alternative energies for applications with special fluids for applications with oxidising agents other than oxygen for applications with higher than normal levels of oxygen
Innovations
PROTEGO® operates the world’s largest research center for the experimental study of flame arresters. We have been testing all types of flame arresters for over 60 years. Our test facility has the necessary test gases and equipment, as well as experienced technical staff for the safe conducting of both explosion and fire tests. Customers benefit from our experience and expertise. PROTEGO® has successfully tested and received independent third party approvals in conformity with both European and international standards for all devices we sell. We support our customers by developing and optimizing devices for protection against overpressure and vacuum, deflagrations, detonations, and fire. We would like to welcome you at our test facility to observe our work.   Contact us!  PROTEGO® Explosion Tests
State of the Art Flow Test Facility Our products stand for quality and safety. The world's largest flow test facility of its kind, it is also an indispensable tool for internal research and development to enable correct scientific measurement of flow and meet specific customer requirements. All PROTEGO® valves and flame arresters are flow tested to assure safe operation in service.
