Düsseldorf based specialists for industrial safety valves, Borman & Neupert have recently released their ATEX-certified flame arresters for reliable protection in chemical, petro-chemical and pharmaceutical plants.
The ATEX-certified deflagration and detonation arresters reliably prevent flame fronts from spreading in a worst case scenario. By using the flame arresters, the risk of fire and explosion in complex closed tank farms and pipeline systems will be effectively defused. "Our deflagration and detonation arresters directly cools ignited atmospheres to a temperature below the combustion point", explained Maria Quast, technical manager at Bormann & Neupert. The safety valves thus form an impregnable, bi-directional barrier for flames and explosions, independent of their propagation velocity. The engineering consultants offer those responsible for plant safety and process optimisation a tailor-made design no matter what: application-specific standard versions of the deflagration and detonation arresters are available for operating temperatures of up to 200 °C and working pressures of up to 2 bar. Special versions can for more extreme operating conditions, higher pressures and operating temperatures are also available.
The Bormann & Neupert range of products in the area of tank protection valves cover almost all applications in which potentially explosive atmosphere of explosion groups I to IIC can exist. They are available as end of line and inline applications in standard sizes DN 25 to DN 600. Furthermore, they maintain that all passive components are extremely low maintenance.
