Murex Welding - Murex Saffire Flashback Arrestors

Murex Welding Products : 24 May, 2007  (Company News)
Murex Saffire Flashback Arrestors are essential safety devices which provide the maximum protection for the operator and his equipment in the event of a flashback. This can be caused by a variety of conditions such as sustained backfire, incorrect hose purging or simply the wrong gas pressure. Murex now offers two types of Saffire Flashback Arrestors which are multi functional devices offering full protection to the user.

The well-proven Saffire 36ec conforms to the requirements of EN730 and offers comprehensive protection. It has a pressure sensitive cut-off, is suitable for acetylene, propane, oxygen and hydrogen gases. HSE and BAM approved, the Saffire 36ec is quality managed to ISO 9000 requirement.

Murex also offers the Saffire XL Flashback Arrestor, a cylindrical flashback arrestor. It has an advanced design giving a high flow rate. Internally the XL is equipped with a large cylindrical flame-arresting element, an automatic reset, non-return valve and a heat sensitive automatic cut-off.

The well respected BCGA Code of Practice 7 was revised and re-issued for 2005. This suggests two levels of user protection:

Minimum Thermal type cut off devices such as the XL.

BCGA recommended Pressure sensitive devices such as the 36ec. This advice is generally accepted as correct for the safest operation.

For further information on any of the Saffire Flashback Arrestors ranges, call Freephone 0800 389 3152.
