DR/SBW

In-Line Detonation Flame Arrester

for stable detonations and deflagrations in a straight through design with shock absorber, bidirectional

Function and Description

In the development of the PROTEGO® DR/SBW in-line Detonation flame arrester, special effort was made to ease future maintenance of the flame arresters. The PROTEGO® flame arrester unit (5) can be removed and cleaned within moments without having to disassemble the piping. The effective shock absorber of the device and elaborate housing geometry reduces the number of FLAMEFILTER® discs to a minimum.

The device is symmetrical and offers bidirectional flame arresting protecting from stable detonations and deflagrations.The flame arrester consists of a double-jacket housing (1) with two integrated shock absorbers (2) with the PROTEGO® flame arrester unit in the center. The PROTEGO® flame arrester unit consists of several FLAMEFILTER® discs (4) and spacers firmly held in a FLAMEFILTER® cage (3). The number of FLAMEFILTER® discs and their gap size depends on the arrester‘s conditions of use. By indicating the operating parameters such as the temperature, pressure and explosion group and the composition of the fluid, the optimum in-line detonation flame arrester can be selected.

The PROTEGO® DR/SBW series of flame arresters is available for explosion groups IIA to IIB3 (NFPA group D to C MESG ≥ 0.65 mm).

The standard design is approved at an operating temperature up to +60°C / 140°F and an absolute operating pressure acc. to table 3. 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 as well as other international standards.

Features and Advantages

  • particularly service-friendly design
  • minimum number of FLAMEFILTER® discs due to use of effective shock absorber
  • the modular design enables each individual FLAMEFILTER® discs to be exchanged
  • bidirectional operation as well as any flow direction and installation position
  • expanded application range for higher operating temperatures and pressures
  • installation of temperature sensors possible
  • minimum pressure loss and hence low operating and lifecycle cost
  • cost efficient spare parts

Flow Capacity Chart

The flow capacity charts have been determined with a calibrated and TÜV certified flow capacity test rig. Volume flow V in (m³/h) and CFH refer to the standard reference conditions of air ISO 6358 (20°C, 1bar). Conversion to other densities and temperatures refer to Vol. 1: “Technical Fundamentals”.
