Welders rely on Western’s advanced Flashback Arrestors to help prevent serious incidents caused byreverse gas flows or flashbacks. Western’s Flashback Arrestors are designed to stop flashbacks bypreventing ignition of mixed gases and to protect equipment such as hoses, regulators and cylinders.
•Color-coded for gas service to provide added safety–oxygen (green), fuel gas (red)
•Internal check valves designed to prevent reverse flow and accidental mixing of oxygen and fuel gases
•Maximum operating pressures are 15 PSIGfor acetylene, 22 PSIGfor other fuel gases, and 125 PSIGfor oxygen
•Rated capacity of 40 SCFH with a 5 PSIG pressure drop.
