20L Red ExploSafe Metal Can

SKU: 0972 Categories: ,

Pro Quip Metal 20L Red ExploSafe AFAC Fuel Jerry Can.

Explosion Proof, Patented Locking Pin.

ExploSafe works in three ways:

  1. The high thermal capacity alloy acts as a heat sink
  2. The mesh design separates the flame into smaller burners
  3. The mesh acts as a physical barrier to the travelling flame front.

Revolutionary Operational Features and Advantages of the ExploSafe Explosion Prevention System™:

  • Prevents the detonation of flammable liquids and gases in containers
  • Limits and delays spread of fire
  • Has no life limit. This means reliable permanent safety and protection
  • Only displaces approximately 1% to 3% of the total volume of the can
  • Has no effect on the flow rate of fuel
  • Reduces evaporation of fuel by 60% at 100°F (37.8°C)
  • Is indifferent to non-polar chemical compounds
  • Does not affect the physio-chemical properties of the fuel or the container
  • Is lightweight, therefore does not increase the weight of a metal jerry can by a significant amount.
  • All fuel cans in the Pro Quip range are Certified to Australian Standard AS2906:2001 and the 20L Metal Jerry cans have also passed stringent Defence Force testing.

Explosafe – How and why it works.

The Explosafe Explosion Prevention System™ relies on a precision engineered proprietary aluminium alloy mesh to provide extraordinary protection from explosive combustion in fuel tanks and other vessels containing flammable liquids and gases. The Explosafe special aluminium alloy has been developed to provide rapid thermal conductivity, rigid mesh structure, crush strength and superior corrosion resistance. This proprietary alloy is then custom machined in patented equipment to create an extraordinarily lightweight aluminium alloy mesh which, when installed in a fuel tank or other vessel containing flammable liquids or gases, will prevent explosive combustion.

The Explosafe Explosion Prevention System is the result of over fifteen years of research, development and engineering in Germany and has been conclusively demonstrated to prevent explosive combustion in fuel tanks and other vessels containing flammable liquids and gases.

General Description

Explosafe is the result of more than 10 years of research and development to achieve the optimum shape and material configuration, and the product, production process and machinery are protected internationally by patents.
The special aluminium alloy used in the Explosafe has been developed to provide rapid thermal conductivity, rigid mesh structure, enormous crush strength and superior corrosion resistance.

Explosafe Product Characteristics

The use of Explosafe to suppress fires and explosions has been successfully demonstrated in liquid fuels and gases. The mesh, when installed in containers containing volatile fuels (hydrocarbons or oxygenates), prevents the explosion or detonation of the fuel and greatly reduces hydrodynamic ram effect from ballistic penetrations. This has been made possible where, by reducing the mesh diameter, there is an increased tendency to extinguish the fire. This rule seems to be independent of the fuels and depends mainly on the type of mesh installed.

Explosafe Specifications

The Explosafe Explosion Prevention System™ has been conclusively demonstrated to prevent explosive combustion in fuel tanks and other vessels containing flammable liquids and gases.
Until recently, Explosafe was used exclusively by the European military – installed in over 1,000 tanks and armored personnel carriers in over seven countries.
We are now proud to bring this technology to other markets.

Safe Refueling tips from Worksafe Victoria

When refueling petrol or diesel powered portable equipment there must be safe systems of work in place to reduce the ignition risk.
These may include:

When Refueling:

  • Turn the equipment off and give it time for the hot parts to cool down
  • Remove the equipment from inside vehicles
  • Remove the equipment from trailers or surfaces (eg plastic or rubber) to ground out any static charge built up on the equipment
  • Refuel away from other heat and possible ignition sources
  • Refuel in a well-ventilated area
  • Do not refuel in low lying areas, where vapours can accumulate
  • Refuel only from approved labelled fuel containers
  • Use a funnel, to reduce the risk of static electricity and fuel spillage
  • Ensure suitable fire extinguishers are readily accessible
  • Replace fuel caps on equipment and fuel containers tightly.

For more information from Worksafe Victoria, visit their site.

When Transporting portable equipment and fuel containers:

  • Allow the equipment to cool down before loading it onto a vehicle
  • Ensure fuel caps are on tight
  • Secure in the upright position in a well-ventilated space.

When Storing fuel onsite:

  • Only approved labelled fuel containers are used
  • Fuel containers are outside vehicles or structures, in a well-ventilated area.
