Systems and methods for quantifying combustion arrester performance are disclosed. Methods include filling an upstream volume and a combustion arrester with a flammable gas, igniting the flammable gas in the upstream volume (and upstream of the combustion arrester), measuring a composition of gas discharged from the combustion arrester due to ignition of the flammable gas, and quantifying the performance of the combustion arrester based on the composition of gas measured. The measured gas composition may include types and/or amounts of combustion species within the gas discharged from the combustion arrester.
