This webinar addresses the principle of flammability of vapor/air mixtures, including flammability limits, ignition temperatures, the effect of inerts and how to determine the flammability of any particular mixture. It also covers ignition sources and the common methods of avoiding flashbacks, including mixture dilution/enrichment, velocity flame arrestors (and how to apply them), mechanical arrestors, liquid seal arrestors, quick close valves and chemical injection systems. A list of references is provided for further study.
