For over 50 years, Elmac has worked closely with leading hazardous zone equipment manufactures to develop a unique range of bespoke solutions that ensure the highest levels of protection and comply with ATEX or the requirements of other regulatory bodies.

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.

  • The Elmac Solution

    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.

  • Expertise

    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.

  • Technology

    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.

  • Compliance

    Elmac’s products comply with all relevant industry standards including ATEX & ISO 16852 (Flame Arresters); API2000/ISO28300 & NFPA30 (Venting & Storage of Combustible Vapours & Liquids).
