TORCH FLASHBACK ARRESTOR EXPIRY DATES

Did you know that Torch Flashback arrestors on compressed cylinders have expiry dates set out by the manufacturer?

OH&S regulation 373(1) requires gas burning or welding equipment to be equipped with approved flashback arrestors installed on both hoses at the regulator end of the unit.

What many don’t know is that torch flashback arrestors come with a manufacturer expiry date and should be replaced as per the manufacturers requirements. It is also recommended that flashback arrestors are tested (or replaced) by a competent person at least every 12 months or in the case of a flashback incident. Check with the manufacturer of the flashback arrestors used at your business for more information.
