In case of an explosion, the Flame Catcher™ prevents flames from spreading further outside the flame arrestor. On the inside, the Flame Catcher™ contains many layers of metallic mesh which forms the flame arrestor element. This flame arrestor will reduce the temperature of the incandescent dust and gas to below their ignition temperature. Incandescent dust is retained within the arrestor element and gases from the explosion are vented through the device into the external atmosphere around the Flame Catcher™. The flame catcher is typically used to protect dryers, mills, filters, cyclones, etc.
