This FLAMEARRESTER is a flame blowback prevention device, designed to be fitted to the fuel ventilation system of boats and yachts.
With the increased use of Biofuel additives such as Ethanol being put into fuel now means that fuel tanks will have to cope with a considerable increase in outgassing vapours.
The higher concentrates of outgassing vapours result in the flashpoint of the tank gasses being reduced so much that even a lit cigarette in the vicinity of the ventilation breather can lead to the explosion of the boat fuel tanks. In Europe, it is already compulsory for boats in marinas to be fitted with an approved flame arrester.
The FLAMEARRESTER prevents the flame from reaching your fuel tank and reduces the risk of it exploding.
