Palmer, K.N. and Tonkin, P.S., 1958. THE FUNDAMENTAL STUDY OF FLAME ARRESTERS 2. (A) WIRE GAUZE ARRESTERS IN A SHORT WIDE TUBE (B) THE RISE IN TEMPERATURE OF GAUZES WHEN QUENCHING A FLAME. Fire Research Notes 353
The performance of single layers of wire gauze as flame arresters for gas and vapour explosions in ducts has been studied using a straight vertical tube whose diameter was 14.9 cm. The fuels used were propane and ethylene and the flammable mixtures were ignited at the open lower end of the tube. Measurements were also made in two tubing systems of the temperatures attained by the gauze when arresting a flame.
