The Deto-Stop Explosion Prevention System
is the result of over fifteen years of research, development
and engineering by the German firm Texoga GmbH and has been
conclusively demonstrated to prevent explosive combustion
in fuel tanks and other vessels containing flammable liquids
and gasses. Until recently, Deto-Stop was used exclusively
by the European military - installed in over 1,000 tanks
and armored personnel carriers in over seven countries.
We are now bringing this technology to other markets.
The features and advantages of the Deto-Stop
Explosion Prevention System™ are revolutionary:
DETO-STOP works by three mechanisms:
The high thermal capacity alloy acts as a heat sink;
The mesh design separates the flame into
smaller burners; and
The mesh acts as a physical barrier to
the traveling flame front.
THE DETO-STOP EXPLOSION PREVENTION SYSTEM:
prevents the detonation of flammable liquids
and gases in containers.
limits and delays spread of fire.
is very cost-effective and can be installed
during production or retrofitted.
has no life limit. This means, reliable
permanent safety and protection.
only displaces approximately 1 to 3% of
the total volume.
has no effect on the flow rate of fuel
reduces evaporation of fuel by 60% at 100°F
has negligible compression when stacked
to a height of 50 feet.
is lightweight - 30-45 g/Liter for mesh
rolls and 55-60 g/Liter for balls.
is indifferent to non-polar chemical compounds.
does not affect the physiochemical properties
of the fuel or the fuel tank.
completely fills all of the available tank
space thereby reducing fluid swash by 80%, which reduces
the need for tank swash plates, baffle plates, or foam.
