Detonation Flame Arrestors -The New Performance Benchmark

Posted On : Thursday 12th April

The Elmac Technologies® UCA Series and UCB Series of In-line Unstable Detonation Flame Arresters are designed to prevent the propagation of gas or vapour explosions in pipelines.

The benefits of the UCA & UCB Series are many. But these are some of the main reasons why you should consider using ours:

Lowest pressure drop
In fact, lower pressure drop than any other detonation arrester – stable or unstable – on the market.

Lower running costs
The reduced energy consumption leads to a reduced carbon footprint. This enables reduced insurance premiums.

No installation restrictions
These flame arresters can be used in isolation as single protection equipment. Plus there are no pipework restrictions regarding placement distances from the source of ignition.

Less maintenance, less downtime
Our unique HEDS™ technology reduces the number of element banks required, making the flame arrester both smaller and lighter. These are removable, modular, easy-clean elements – making lengthy maintenance a thing of the past.

Certificates and accreditations:

  • Designed and manufactured according to latest EN ISO 16852 standard
  • ATEX approved and certified for explosion groups: IIA1 & IIA (UCA); IIB1, IIB2 & IIB3 (UCB)
