Kito End of Line Deflagration Flame Arresters

KITO – End of Line Deflagration Flame Arresters

KITO products suitable for end-of-line installations incorporating a breather/venting safety device with a flame arrester element for deflagration explosions.

Deflagration proof ventilation hood

KITO® VH-…-IIB3

Application:

As breather/venting safety device incorporating an explosion proof flame arrester element for installation on top of storage tanks, tank access covers or breather pipes. The breather allows the unimpeded flow of gases out to atmosphere and air into the tank/pipe thereby preventing vacuum locks whilst ensuring provision of a permanent and reliable protection against any flashback into the tank/pipe.

This device is not permitted to be installed in enclosed areas.

Approved for all materials of the explosion group IIB3 with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) ≥ 0.65.

Deflagration and short-time burning proof ventilation hood

KITO® VH-…-IIB3-XT

Application:

End-of-line venting device incorporating an explosion and shorttime burn proof flame arrester element for installation on storage tanks. Suitable to protect flammable products of explosion group IIB3 up to a maximum operating temperature of 180 °C. This device is not permitted to be installed in enclosed areas.

Installation on top of storage tanks, tank access covers or at the end of breather pipes. It prevent a flashback into the tank and allows the inbreathing and out breathing of the tank.

Design with temperature sensor, to detect a “stabilized burning” (burn time 1 minute).

KITO® VH-…-IIB3-T

Application:

As breather/venting safety device incorporating an explosion and short-time burn proof flame arrester element for installation on top of storage tanks, tank access covers or breather pipes. The breather allows the unimpeded flow of gases out to atmosphere and air into the tank/pipe thereby preventing vacuum locks whilst ensuring provision of a permanent and reliable protection against any flashback into the tank/pipe.

This device is not permitted to be installed in enclosed areas.

Approved for all materials of the explosion group IIB3 with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) ≥ 0.65

Design with temperature sensor, to detect a “stabilized burning” (burn time 1 minute).

Deflagration proof ventilation hood

KITO® VH-…-IIC

Application:

As breather/venting safety device incorporating an explosion proof flame arrester element for installation on top of storage tanks, tank access covers or breather pipes. The breather allows the unimpeded flow of gases out to atmosphere and air into the tank/pipe thereby preventing vacuum locks whilst ensuring provision of a permanent and reliable protection against any flashback into the tank/pipe.

This device is not permitted to be installed in enclosed areas.

Approved for all materials of the explosion group IIC with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) < 0.5.

Deflagration and short-time burning proof ventilation hood

KITO® VH-…-IIC-T

Application:

As breather/venting safety device incorporating an explosion and short-time burn proof flame arrester element for installation on top of storage tanks, tank access covers or breather pipes. The breather allows the unimpeded flow of gases out to atmosphere and air into the tank/pipe thereby preventing vacuum locks whilst ensuring provision of a permanent and reliable protection against any flashback into the tank/pipe.

This device is not permitted to be installed in enclosed areas.

Approved for all materials of the explosion group IIC with a maximum experimental safe gap (MESG) < 0.5

Design with temperature sensor, to detect a “stabilized burning” (burn time 1 minute).

Deflagration proof ventilation hood

KITO® VEH-5-IIB3-…

KITO® VEH-4-IIB3-…

Application:

As breather/venting safety device for small tank facilities, explosion proof for flammable fluids of explosion group IIB3 with a gap width (NSW) ≥ 0.65 mm.

This device is not permitted to be installed in enclosed areas.

Structure on storage tanks, tank covers or at the end of ventilation pipes. The end armature prevents passage of flame into the tank. The gases enter the storage medium unimpeded into the atmosphere.
