Flame Arresters

Flammable liquids are volatile in nature and when liquids evaporate, they may produce ignitable vapor/air mixtures. A flame arrester provides gas / vapor flow from the protected side to the unprotected side under normal operating conditions. If an ignition on the unprotected side should occur, the flame front will be quenched during subsonic flow conditions. 

Types of flame arresters:

  • In-line installations
    • In-line vertical flame arresters
    • In-line horizontal flame arresters
  • End-of-line installations
    • End-of-line horizontal flame arresters

Cross Company is proud to represent the Groth product line of flame arresters.
