Dear Lutz Möller,
Take a look at the picture showing the huge flames from a titanium silencer ( on Dakota .330").
LM: Such ugly Flares are not unknown to me. See
Nachverbrennung allerfeinster Güte. Das Ding ist keine Bremse sondern ein Anzünder für entflammbare heiße Pulvergase!
LM: To view more Flames, please take a Look at Fuchsbremsennachbau.
I ask myself, if it possible that the titanium can catalyse a
combustion of unburnd powdergaz from the load?

Dear Mr. Opsahl,
when You look at the first Picture on this Page from Your Norwegian Magazine „Norwegian Fire“, You may notice three consecutive Stages after the Muzzle
Gas invisibly escapes the Muzzle
A small Gas cone shines yellow
A big shining Flame occurs
From an unarmed Muzzle "Stage 1" creates no Worries at all. The little shining Gas cone after that, "Stage 2", again disturbs not, but stage 3 " Flame" disturbs the Hunter.
Why is that? "Secondary Combustion" happens, when hot combustible Gases meet Air with ~21 % Oxygen and the Mixture is hot enough to lighten the combustible Mixture, so that "secondary Combustion" occurs, i.e. primarily combusted Material again with ambient Air combusts.
How to avoid secondary _Combustion?
will be later continued . . .
