Flame Arrestor Elimination System
3GHI Lite™ Flame Arrestor Elimination System – Run your diesel engine without exhaust flame arrestors
Our 3GHI Lite™ eliminates the need for flame arrestors (or ‘flame arresters’) on the engine exhaust gas cooler. By removing flame arrestors and the problematic exhaust flow restrictions, 3GHI Lite™ delivers measurable improvement in diesel engine performance and fuel efficiency over the lifetime of the equipment. Thereby, enabling diesel engines to run continuously at optimal performance for extended periods, in turn maximizing equipment utilization and operational up-time when on location. This is value added to your equipment and asset investments.
Simplicity by design, 3GHI Lite™ uses gas detection and automated valve arrangement which shuts down the engine immediately, once gas has been detected. The automated air shutoff valve closes instantaneously, thus eliminating any potential for gas to migrate further into the engine workings where there can be potential sources for gas ignition.
The 3GHI Lite™ system consist of:
- Gas detector
- Trip amplifier
- Air shutoff valve
Industry approved and compliance verified
After a systematic and lengthy testing program, where the 3GHI Lite™ proved its capabilities with excellent and repeatable engine shut-down responsiveness and exceptional reliability, the system was duly approved by a notified body. The 3GHI Lite™ system is fully compliant with EN 1834-1 standard.
