Typical Applications

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.
