Elmac Technologies’ High Energy Dissipation System (HEDS™) is used in our globally renowned range of in-line detonation flame arresters and sets a new performance benchmark. These flame arresters offer ultimate protection from deflagration to worst-case scenario unstable detonation explosions. The latter result from the acceleration of a deflagration flame front causes the transition of a pressure wave to a shock wave within the confines of a pipe.
Due to its innovative design HEDS™ technology offers improvements of up to 30% in terms of flow rate and operating energy savings more than other typical products on the market. It incorporates our pioneering orifice plate design and optimised crimp mesh, that attenuates the shock wave, dissipates heat and significantly reduces the intensity of any explosion.
The many benefits of using HEDS™ technology include:
HEDS™ protects from all explosion scenarios including worst-case unstable detonations.
Bi-directional capability means there are no placement restrictions or the need for additional equipment.
Flow rates and pressure drops are improved by up to 30%.
Optimised HEDS™ and E-Flow™ element technology facilitates fewer functional elements and/or reduced product size.
Reduced product, pipe and pump sizes yields significant energy and CapEx/OpEx savings.
Fewer components simplifies maintenance and reduces downtime.
