Product Overview

The FA Series Flash Arrestors are installed in condensate return systems when introducing high pressure condensate into low pressure return piping. The integral sparge pipe is used to diffuse the incoming condensate from a steam trap to reduce the effects of water hammer, significantly improving return system operation. A flash arrestor can also mitigate water hammer and elevated return pressures and temperatures in overstressed or flooded return lines.

Standard design is Carbon Steel Schedule 80 shell and SST HP inlet pipe. Many options available; Consult factory.

Selection / Sizing / Capacities

Many applications of the flash arrestor allow sizing to match the shell end connections to condensate piping diameter and the highpressure inlet tube to the discharge connection size of the steam trap.

To confirm appropriate sizing, consult factory with Steam Trap Inlet Pressure, Steam Trap Size, Condensate Pipe Diameter, and Condensate Return Pressure.
