Flame protection: endurance burn, deflagration / detonation flame arresters
After a flash back, flames may continue to burn on the surface of an element, causing re-ignition of the gas on the protected side. Highly functional AMAL Flame arresters prevent this from happening.
Reducing the heat
After a flash back, flames may stabilise and burn continually on the element surface, causing re-ignition of the gas on the protected side. Stabilised (endurance) burning can be detected and controlled by the use of temperature sensors, which can be fitted close to the element to detect any abnormal rise in temperature.
On end-of-line applications a different solution is required: a fusible link holds the weather cover in the normal position – during an endurance burn, extreme temperatures are generated which ultimately causes the fusible link to melt, releasing the cover and allowing the heat to escape.
