NEW Flashback Arrestors and Check Valves for Fuel and Air Gas

By Kristen Cifranic
April 22, 2015 Category: Flashback Arrestor Check Valves Fuel Gas Air Gas Thermal Process Systems

SuperFlash has a new product line for thermal process systems and heating processes with fuel gas and air mixtures. The new product line consists of check valves (GRV Series) in accordance with EN730-2 so-called safety devices without integrated flame arrestor as well as models with check valves and an integrated flame arrestor (GRS Series). The new products are characterized by minimal cracking pressures between 4 and 6 mbar as well as extremely low pressure losses. These products can be used in thermal process plant applications with a natural gas supply as well as heating processes for welding, cutting, and related processes that are operated with mixtures of fuel gas and air. In this area the safety devices are used to safeguard plants, pipeline systems and tapping points and prevent gas return (check valves, model: GRV) or gas return and flashback (flashback resistant gas non-return valve, model: GRS). The safety devices satisfy the requirements specified in all relevant international

Stainless Steel Flashback Arrestors

April 01, 2015 Category: Stainless Steel Flashback Arrestors Oxygen Hydrogen Flammable Gases

In addition to our standard high flow stainless steel flashback arrestor (model DG91NSS), we now offer three additional versions to cover a much larger range of flow rates and situations. Choose from our model DGN for standard flow applications all the way up to our models ESF and Demax designed for high flow manifold applications. Now no matter what application you have, we can provide a flashback arrestor made from stainless steel and suitable for use with higher purity gases, and in more demanding environments. Stainless steel flashback arrestors are designed for oxygen, hydrogen and other flammable gases where all stainless steel type 316 with Viton or other elastomers are desirable. These arrestors are standard with NPT connections; however they can be specially adapted and tested in our lab with a wide variety of connections, including Swagelok tube fittings.

The Importance of High Flow Flashback Arrestors

By Kristen Cifranic
March 25, 2015 Category: High Flow Flashback Arrestors, Torches, Tips

Different sizes of torches and tips require different flow rates to operate properly. It is very important to understand the required gas flow for your process to ensure safe operation. High flow capacity flashback arrestors allow sufficient gas flow for larger heating and cutting tips. Additionally they have significantly longer service life because of their high flow capacity. A flashback arrestor can restrict gas flow if it is too small for the application, causing backfires, short tip life, poor quality work, and even equipment damage. Tip sizes and consumption rates vary for equipment from different manufactures. A good rule of thumb is to use a high flow arrestor for tip sizes larger than #4. However It is always better to size an arrestor based on the actual gas consumption. Flashback arrestor flow charts and technical service are available to help make the correct decision based on the equipment you are using. High flow flashback arrestors have a larger flame barrier with increased

SuperFlash / IBEDA two-gas adjustable gas mixer By Dave Marquard July 30, 2015 Westlake, OH SuperFlash Compressed Gas Equipment, manufacturer of compressed gas safety and control devices, offers a two-gas adjustable gas mixer that allows blending your own shielding gases at almost any ratio and is simple to operate! Save Money and Get Better Shielding Gas! Often times, when buying pre-mixed gases, the mix purchased from the gas company is close but not exactly the formula needed for the application. Other times, pre-mixed gases arent used quickly enough and the gases will stratify (become un-mixed) in the cylinder. The best solution to this problem is to allow users to fully customize and mix the gases at the time of application. The SuperFlash Compressed Gas Equipment two-gas adjustable mixer allows blending your own shielding gases at almost any ratio needed to fit your process, requires no additional electricity, and is very simple to operate. Weighing in at only 7.5 lbs and

Flashback arrestor report from Germany

March 04, 2015 Category: IBEDA Flashback Arrestors Welding Cutting

Our friends at IBEDA, Germany created videos about the importance of using flashback arrestors while welding, cutting or in allied processes. Using safety devices, like those manufactured by IBEDA, on a global scale has led to a continually decreasing number of accidents in this industry. IBEDA did a great job of translating this report from German to English, and they created a short video on how flashback arrestors are tested at their facility. See their video below on how flashback arrestors are tested. See their PVGD demonstration below.

Using a flashback arrestor is the best way to stop flashbacks from occurring. They have the essential element that stops flashbacks a flame barrier. A flame barrier stops the rapid flame propagation through hoses, regulators and torches. Without this protection, check valves cannot stop a flashback. Want to see how flashback arrestors work?
