New Enhanced Flow (E-Flow TM) Flame Arresters
Safety, performance, Flame Arresters
Elmac Technologies, the international leaders in flame arresters and tank and vessel protection equipment, announce the development of their new E-Flow element technology used in their end of line flame arrester ranges.
Elmac Technologies Ltd is a leading international manufacturer and distributor of high quality flame arresters, detonation arresters and low pressure venting equipment, and has been supplying the global oil and gas industry for more than 60 years.
The new E-Flow range of end of line flame arresters, including the EVA, EVB, EHB and ESA Series, draws on Elmac’s vast experience and expertise resulting in a number of innovative features.
The Elmac approach to product development begins and ends with the customer. A philosophy exemplified by Elmac's new 'end of line' flame arresters - the result of significant customer research which prioritised the core issues of low maintenance, light weight construction and flow performance.
By taking advantage of modern analytical techniques such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and using a first principles approach, all of these considerations are addressed in the new E-FlowTM flame arrester element design which uses less material and offers a greater free area to the flow.
As you will see from the accompanying graphic, the results are remarkable. The relative flow performance of the Elmac 150mm nominal bore EVA flame arrester versus the market leading competitors’ equivalent model has a like-for-like flow performance improvement of as much as 30% across the entire range. Not to mention the Elmac E-Flow end of line flame arresters being lighter, easier to maintain and can be specified at smaller sizes for the same duty.
All of Elmac’s products are manufactured in the UK and supplied in accordance with the very latest internationally recognised standards giving our customers the peace of mind which comes from knowing you are not compromising on safety.
