Frequently Asked Questions: 1. Why do I need flashback arrestors? Answer: If the torch and/or regulator are misused, an accident called a flashback could occur. A flashback is an ignition of mixed gases which flows back to the source of the gases such as the hose, regulator, and cylinder at a speed which is greater than five times the speed of sound, creating the risk of injury or equipment damage. 2. Why arent flashback arrestors built in the torch or regulator? Answer: Flashback arrestors should be checked on a routine basis to ensure they continue to offer maximum protection. If arrestors were an integral part of the torch, it would require the torch to be taken out of service for routine inspection. External flashback arrestors are much easier to replace even in the field and because they are external to the torch, can have larger component parts for higher flow, and longer service life. 3. Why is high gas flow capacity important when choosing a flashback arrestor? Answer: High

Here is an opportunity for every torch and regulator repair facility. OSHA and ANSI Z49.1: 2012* require that each and every flashback arrestor and check valve be tested and maintained according to the manufacturers instructions. Testing is usually required once per year, or more often in heavy duty or abusive applications. Failure to perform testing can result personal injury accidents, equipment damage, and heavy OSHA violations and fines. Now you can easily test all popular brands of flashback arrestor and/or check valve with a certified flashback arrestor testing device.The PVGDtests both gas flow and reverse flow check valves safely and easily.SuperFlashs PVGD uses inert nitrogen instead of far more hazardous and expensive fuel gases or oxygen to test equipment, and without changing the position of your equipment, you can test for forward and reverse flow! This is a great service to your customers and a new source of revenue and profits for you. Every flashback arrestor and check
