This seminar educates participants on explosion protection concepts regarding in-line flame arresters. It begins by demonstrating flame arrester function with short video sequences. From there, it discusses limits of use and distinguishes between different types of arresters based on the explosion and combustion types for which they are tested. This new knowledge is applied so each participant understands how to choose the correct type of arrester based on vapor group and process conditions (e.g. temperature and pressure). Finally the webinar provides a “layer of protection” concept to assure flashback protection from incinerators and other ignition sources and demonstrates sizing of devices, taking into account various process parameters
