Flashback Arrestors vs. Check Valves: Do you REALLY know the difference?

Posted On: April 23, 2014 by Kristen Cifranic

Flashback Arrestors Designed to stop a flashback AND prevent reverse flow Flashback Arrestors have a flame barrier which stops a rapid flame propagation through hoses, regulators and torches. Flashback Arrestors also include an internal Check Valve which is protected by the flame barrier. SuperFlash Flashback Arrestors can come with a thermal shut off that can stop hose burnback and repeated flashbacks. SuperFlash Flashback Arrestors are U/L approved and OSHA compliant! SuperFlash Flashback Arrestors will stop a flashback even if the internal check fails or leaks. Check Valves Check Valves only prevent the reverse flow of gases, and CANNOT stop a flashback. Check Valves do NOT have a flame barrier Check Valves do NOT contain an inlet filter, which keeps out dust and debris. Check Valves need to be checked at least annually, or more often in abusive or heavy duty applications. Most people don't take the time to inspect them! If a Check Valve fails, the reverse flow
