Safeopedia explains Detonation Arrester

Detonator resisters do not have any moving parts. Instead, they use a metal matrix that is designed to remove heat from a flame as it moves through narrow passages. Flame arresters are intended to prevent an open fire spreading, limit the spread of an explosive detonation, stop a flame from propagating an confining a fire within a controlled location. They are extensively used on gas pipelines, Davy lamps used in coal mining and flammable liquors.
