Linde flashback arrestors.

Linde flashback arrestors are precision-manufactured, assembled and individually tested to the highest manufacturing standards. The superior quality of Linde flashback arrestors makes them essential to the Linde range.

Linde flashback arrestors feature:

A. Inlet filter – a large stainless steel surface made from wire mesh to prevent foreign matter entering the unit.

B. Signal lever (resettable), drop-down shroud (on Premier flashback arrestor).

C. Non-return valve (NV) – a spring-loaded valve preventing the backfeed of gas upstream of the flashback arrestor.

D. Flame Arrestor (FA) – a large sintered stainless steel element for repeatedly arresting flames.

E. Temperature-activated cut-off valve (TV) – a valve that cuts off gas supply in the event of sustained, multiple flashbacks or a flame being held in the device. Once activated, this cannot be reset and the unit must be replaced.

Linde Premier FBAs also feature:

F. A pressure-sensitive cut-off device (PV) – a valve that isolates the gas supply if a backfeed of gas is detected. When this valve is activated, the signal lever B is raised or the shroud drops to alert the user to a potentially dangerous situation. Once the cause of the backfeed has been

corrected, the flashback arrestor can be reset and the user can continue in safety.

A flashback is a flame travelling at supersonic speed in the opposite direction to normal gas flow in
oxy-fuel gas equipment. The backfeeding of gases that promotes flashbacks is generally caused by
one of the following:
• Excessive pressure. If the flow rate exceeds the nozzle capacity, the gas at the higher
pressure then flows into the lower-pressure gas line. This will occur if incorrect pressures
are used or if nozzles, cutting attachments and welding torches are incompatible
• Lighting up incorrectly with both torch control valves open but one cylinder closed. In spite of
better equipment, flashbacks remain a problem in oxy-fuel gas systems. There are many reasons
for this, including the growing use of welding and cutting equipment by unskilled or semi-skilled
persons who sometimes short-cut safety procedures in order to save time
• A drop in pressure of either gas due to leaks in the regulator, hose or connections.
This results in backfeeding into the low-pressure line
• The reverse flow of gases during temporary storage or shutdown, incorrect
closedown procedures or malfunctioning valves or regulators
