How Safe Are Your Flashback Arrestors?
A quality flashback arrestor should have a stainless steel flame barrier and low porosity. (The flame barrier is the part of a flashback arrestor that actually stops the flashback.)
Low cost or discount flashback arrestors often use a barrier made of bronze and with a high level of porosity (20-40 microns). This allows the manufacturer to save money, but can possibly put the user in danger, because bronze is an alloy containing a large portion of copper.
All SuperFlash flashback arrestors use a high quality sintered stainless steel flame barrier with a porosity of 3-5 microns, enabling the arrestor to stop flashbacks. Also, all SuperFlash flashback arrestors are 100% tested with actual flashbacks to ensure they are capable of providing you protection in case of an incident.
