New! Oxy-Fuel Gas Safety Demos

May 21, 2020

SuperFlash flashback arrestors are UL and BAM approved, 100% tested for reverse flow, leak 
integrity and flashback protection with actual flashbacks, and contain a built-in 100 micron inlet 
filter, reverse flow check valve, 3-5 micron flame barrier, and a thermal shutoff valve in our point of supply models. So you can be sure that not only are you getting enough gas flow, you are 
getting the highest quality safety device available.

SuperFlash flashback arrestors are the worldwide leader in quality and functionality.


No, all flame barriers are not created equal. Flame barriers can be made of different materials and have different micron openings. The flame barrier needs to be made a material that will extinguish fires and have the right size openings to allow gas through—but not a flashback. If the micron openings are too large or the material is not correct—the flame barrier will not stop a flashback. SuperFlash flashback arrestors are made of high quality 3-5 micron stainless steel, and are 100% tested so they stop flashbacks every time.

  • 100% Flashback Testing ensures our products work in real world situations.
  • 3-5 micron stainless steel flame barriers stop flashbacks. Other brands have larger microns and less effective materials, that might not stop flashbacks every time.
  • 100 micron inlet filter keeps contaminants out and
    increases service life by as
    much as 2.5 times.


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 porosity that can be as high as
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.  SuperFlash flashback arrestors use a flame barrier with a porosity of 3-5 microns, which enables the arrestor to safely stop flashbacks.


Check valves only prevent the reverse flow of gases and CANNOT stop a flashback. Check valves do not have the essential element to stop a flashback—a flame barrier. A flame barrier stops the rapid flame propagation through hoses, regulators and torches. Without this protection, the check valve cannot stop a flashback.
