Flash Back Arrestors

what exactly is a Liquid flash back arrestors ? and why is it used ?

  • by

Oxy-acetylene torches and fuel pipelines are used for welding, cutting, heating, and brazing in metal fabrication workshops and a number of other other industrial facilities. The design of those torches has evolved over the years. Today, you’ll see oxy-acetylene torches in safety-centered designs; still, they will cause serious accidents. Flashback… Read More »what exactly is a Liquid flash back arrestors ? and why is it used ?

Acetylene Generator Hopper


Our Acetylene Generator is a “Continuous Flow” type. When the carbide contents of the hopper are exhausted, (the other hopper automatically goes into operation, carrying the load) the empty hopper can be refilled during the time the gas in the generator is being used. In this way continuous service is maintained conveniently and safely. No shutdown operations at recharging period means that you save both labour and time. The Generator may be started or stopped as and when required.

Calcium Carbide lime slurry

What is Carbide Lime Slurry?

Carbide lime is a high quality hydrated lime slurry produced as a by-product of the generation of acetylene gas
It is produced as a 10% solids slurry and is stored in tanks, where the excess water is decanted to increase the solids content to the 30-40% range for distribution in 5000 gallon tank trucks.

Flash Back Arrestors

Classification Of Flash Back Arrestors

Many methods to stop flashbacks have been devised. Broadly the Interruption Methods can classify the Flashback Arrestors into two types :
“Active” methods require maintenance of certain parameters, such as liquid level or gas velocity. “Passive” methods require only routine inspection and typically have no moving parts or instrument requirements.

Flash Back Arrestors

Gas Flash Back & its causes

reasons that may cause a flash back. Hot refractory causes a flash back  If the refractory lining a burner or furnace is hot enough to bring the hydrocarbon/air mixture to the auto ignition temperature, rapid combustion will start. Heat transfer from the hot surface depends on gas velocity and turbulence,… Read More »Gas Flash Back & its causes

Oxyacetylene Torch cutting

Why should one use Flashback Arrestors?

The flashback arrestor should be placed at the closest point to the flame, if due to unavoidable circumstances the Arrestor can not be places close to the cutting nozzle or the flame then it should be placed of the main pipe line, and also on the fuel gas bank, vessel, cylinder.

Why you should rebuilt your acetylene compressors

When it comes to compressed gas products, many business owners and managers prefer buying new ones. Many times, this is due to a gap in their understanding of the benefits of the rebuilding process or even that rebuilt units are available. What are these benefits? What does a compressor rebuilding involve? This post discusses how a rebuilt acetylene gas compressor can be an asset to a business.
