Our customers in the vacuum pump, industrial fan, diesel/gas engine and other equipment manufacturing sectors have very specific individual requirements. However, they each demand best-in-class performance, absolute reliability, minimal maintenance and, of course, cost effective solutions.
Whilst providing our customers with an unrivalled level of support our innovatively engineered range of flame arresters offer a unique choice of element media (crimped ribbon, sinter, and knitted or woven mesh) that can be tailored to meet the specific requirements of the most challenging application. The designs, including self-draining variants, ensure the delivery of the required levels of protection and the resulting performance characteristics will facilitate ATEX compliance and improved efficiencies and lower operating costs derived from industry-leading pressure drop and reduced fouling and maintenance.
Our highly qualified team of technical experts work closely with our customers to determine their application-specific explosion protection and venting requirements. We utilise sophisticated Computational Fluid Dynamics to design bespoke solutions that can be verified using our state-of-the-art in-house test facilities.
Elmac’s flame arresters incorporate our industry-leading E-FlowTM technology that delivers higher rates of flow, lower pressure drop and reduced fouling characteristics. Our extensive range of unstable detonation arresters incorporates the patent-protected HEDSTM technology and offers protection in all explosion scenarios with no installation limitations. The patented protected lightweight ERB range of flame arresters facilitate the most cost effective solution for locations difficult to access.
Elmac’s products comply with all relevant industry standards including ATEX & ISO 16852 (Flame Arresters); API2000/ISO28300 & NFPA30 (Venting & Storage of Combustible Vapours & Liquids). They are routinely used in situations that may be subject to BLEVE (engulfment by fire) incidents. In addition, Elmac is accredited to the following international standards: ISO 9001 (Total Quality Management), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health & Safety).
