A spark arrester (sometimes spark arrestor) is any device that prevents the emission of flammable debris from combustion sources, such as internal combustion engines.
Spark arresters play a critical role in the prevention of wildland fire and the ignition of explosive atmospheres. Consequently, their use is required by law in many jurisdictions worldwide.
Compatible with RJWC APX slipons and exhausts.
Made of stainless steel mesh and stainless steel brim.
Laws governing spark arrester use in the United States depend on the jurisdiction. Internal combustion engines operating on USDA Forest Service and most other federally managed lands must meet the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations 36 CFR 261.52.
This mandate requires the operator to have a certified and properly maintained spark arrester installed at all times. Many state and local land management agencies defer to the federal requirement.
