Designed for chemical engineers and other technical personnel involved in the design, operation, and maintenance of facilities and equipment where deflagration and detonation flame arresters (DDFAs) may be required, this book fosters effective application and operation of DDFAs through treatment of their principles of operation, selection, installation, and maintenance methods. This reference covers a broad range of issues concerning DDAs, including: An overview of deflagration and detonation prevention and protection practices An overview of combustion and flame propagation and how DDAs halt propagation Deflagration and detonation flame arrester technology Installation in process systems Regulations, codes, and standards Illustrative examples, calculations, and guidelines for DDA selection Appendices, including a glossary, a flame arrester specification sheet for vendor quotation, and a listing of flame arrester manufacturers.Deflagration Venting Venting of deflagrations is often used for overpressure protection for process equipment, pipes and ducts. ... vents for pipes and ducts operating at or near atmospheric pressure (up to 3 psig) are presented in Chapter 8 of NFPA 68 (NFPA 1998). ... presented later in the guide, the weight of the deflagration vent closures should not exceed 2.5 lb/ft2 (12.2 kg/m2) of free vent area. 6.
