This industry knowledge combined with our in-house research, development and testing facilities enable us to offer bespoke solutions with full support when dealing with specification, sizing, materials and documentation issues. Detailed quotes, competitive pricing and reduced lead times enhance our affinity with our loyal customers worldwide.

In-house testing facility

Our innovative products are designed and manufactured in the UK and have been independently flame and explosion type-tested and certified. These tests are certified to EN ISO 16852 (previously BS EN 12874), the European Standard for Flame Arresters which provides for a significant safety margin in typical operating conditions.

On behalf of customers, we are equipped to investigate the characteristics of particular gases or vapours and conduct application-specific tests in our highly advanced Flame Arrester test facility.

Any Flame Arrester supplied must be installed in accordance with the explosion group, location and operating conditions (e.g. temperature and pressure) against which the explosion type testing has been performed.
