In some applications flame arresters after stopping an explosion flame may have to resist for some time a premixed flame burning on the arrester surface. It is important that such a flame does not penetrate the arrester matrix. This Note describes the performance of crimped ribbon arresters under those conditions. Crimped ribbon arresters of suitable crimp height may safely hold such flames for considerable periods of time.
