The U.S. Bureau of Mines is investigating the feasibility of developing retimet-vented explosion-proof enclosures for use in underground coal mines. This paper presents the results of laboratory tests of retimet, a stainless steel foam material, when used as a flame arrester on explosion-proof enclosures during internal methane-air explosions. The success of this material in the laboratory has resulted in an agreement with the Mine Safety and Health Administration's approval and certification center to jointly conduct large-scale testing of retimet on a prescribed test vessel and, if successful, to develop recommendations for its use on vented explosion-proof enclosures that would be less massive than their conventional counterparts.
