Flame arresters for the protection of biogas plants

To avoid personal injury and property damages, tanks and sensitive system parts into which flames can blow in or out has to be protected through flame arresters.

During fermentation of biomass, mainly Methane (CH4) is produced. Biogas air mixture is used as process gas in CHP to create electric power. Uncontrolled ignition of biogas can injure workers and damage the biogas plant.

In order to protect the system in case of an uncontrolled ignition, flame arresters are installed between the CHP and the gas mixer as well as under the flare.
ATEX Directive 2014/34 / EU: Flame arresters are autonomous protection systems tested through a notified body (3rd party approval) to EN ISO 16852. Only ATEX certified flame arresters has to be installed.

We are offering a wide range of ATEX certified flame arresters approved to EN ISO 16852 for use in biogas plants.

Wood Gas:

Please consider that wood gas contain a great deal of hydrogen. Hydrogen belongs to a higher explosion group (IIC) than methane (IIA1). Consequently, it is not permitted to use flame arresters certified for methane for hydrogen gas.

Other application areas

Industry

Flame arresters are autonomous protection systems in accordance to ATEX Directive 2014/34 / EU.  Autonomous protective systems must be tested through a notified body (3rd party approval) to EN ISO 16852. Only ATEX certificate flame arresters has to be installed.

petrol station

Petrol stations must be protected against flame entering in to pipe work on all openings. This is for example fulfilled , if the openings are equipped with flame arresters.

Ships

Cofferdams on ships are open to the atmosphere via ventilation. In the event of fire, the empty cofferdams will be filled with water. During normal use, the empty cofferdams are breathing trough atmospheric condition. This is also the case if ship load requires explosion protection.
