Flame can't travel through small gaps. Something simple would be lathe turnings /swarf inside a cannister. The system still needs to breathe so not too tightly packed.
Depending on the nature of the gases ,above a certain temperature a flame trap will become ineffective so keeping them cool is something to be mindful.
There is a pic of my flash-back arrestor (flame trap) on Blog page: Bubbler & draw-back-arrestor Orion #9 Fuel from waste oil and plastic DIY Orion: Bubbler & draw-back-arrestor Orion #9
