FLAME ARRESTING HIGH VELOCITY VALVES ON CARGO TANKS OF TANKERS FOR INFLAMMABLE LIQUIDS

The difference is shown between the various types of flame arresting devices (explosion arresting, long time burning flame arresting and detonation arresting devices), and the requirements to be met in safety aspects by those devices are pointed out. With regard to high velocity valves, which are flame arresting devices as well as conditional flame arresters (e.g. crimped ribbon arresters), the conditions of tests related to flame arresting properties are described. Furthermore the conditions for a sufficient carrying-off and diluting of the vented inflammable vapors are explained. Finally the capacity and the facilities of the tests plant used are shown.
