Features & Benefits : The Selas automatic fire check, or flame arrestor, is basically a check valve which is closed by actuation of a thermal release. Components include a shut-off valve, check valve, corrugated fire screen, and a thermal latch. In normal operations, the combustible fuel/air mixture passes freely through these components. If flashback occurs, the sudden increase in back pressure will cause the check valve to close and momentarily interrupt the forward flow of the fuel/air mixture. The reduced flow and the internal configuration of the fire check allow the backward-travelling flame to stop at the fire screen. The tiny holes and chilling capacity of the fire screen hold the flame on the screen until the thermal element is heated and releases the latch to close the shut-off valve. This valve-closure stops fuel/air flow and prevents the flashback from proceeding past the fire check. The shut-off valve remains closed until manually reset.

  • Ensures long trouble-free operation and quick, positive closure to stop gas/air mixture flow
  • Reset is easily accomplished without replacement of parts or disassembly
  • Operating temperatures to 150°F
  • System design and installation are simplified by the single, compact subassembly which can be mounted in any position
  • The fire check can be easily tested or inspected without being removed from pipeline

Application :
For containing flash back from Premix air/fuel burners and combustion system.
