The brand name KITO® has been associated with flame arresters manufactured in Braunschweig, Germany for over 80 years. KITO Armaturen GmbH was originally founded by Wilke-Werke AG many years ago who was responsible for developing the KITO® trademark and brand itself from an abbreviation for the old “Kiestopf” (or common gravel pot).
Today, there are over 50 employees in KITO’s own factory, producing flame arresters, valves, and other associated special devices. Experienced agents both in Europe and worldwide are able to provide a qualified local service for their international customers.
KITO collaborates on the latest standardization and continually updates their customers by way of training and seminars, with the latest developments and ideas in safety engineering.
The size of the company enables KITO to find quick and very flexible solutions for their customers’ needs: customized special designs are part of KITO’s expertise as well as short-dated approvals for special flame arresters. The delivery times are short and reliable, and able to be adjusted to the requirements of their customers. KITO flame arresters are not only suitable for service on gas groups IIA, IIB, and IIC, but also for application on hydrogen & acetylene service.
