CONCEPT BEHIND THE KIMARK SMARTFLARE

To burn VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) gases from condensate and water tanks and eliminate venting VOC gasses to the atmosphere, keeping the customer in compliance with the heavy industry regulations.

CONFIGURATION

OPERATION OF THE UNIT

By installing a low pressure sensor measured in ounces on the common manifold piping of the tank battery, the flare senses a rise in pressure and starts the burn sequence. With adjustable start and stop set points, the amount of PSI on the tanks and temperature of the burn can be controlled. An example would be: “ON” at six ounces and “OFF” at two ounces to keep the burn temperature at nominal.

POWER

The standard unit is powered by 12 Volts DC, making solar charging an easy option for remote, or non powered applications. Other power combinations are also readily available.

FLAME DETECTION

The Kimark UV Flame Detector senses flame presence and intensity. Upon a failure to see flame, the flare controller goes through a user configurable sequence of timed retries. If for any reason power is disrupted to the flare unit and returns, a purge sequence will be implemented to prevent premature ignition of the flare.

GAS FLOW MEASUREMENT

The ability to measure gas flow built into all of our SmartFlare Panels. Gas accumulation is measured in current rate, previous day, and previous hour increments.

ONBOARD LOGGING

The unit continually monitors temperature, pressure, and runtime. This is then logged to a two gigabyte memory chip which can be easily transferred to a computer and viewed as a standard .CSV file (Excel).

FEATURES OF THE KIMARK SMARTFLARE

  • The low profile of the enclosed flare and quiet running make it advantageous for use in both rural and populated areas.
  • The SmartFlare is designed to operate in multiple conditions. It can be a stand-alone controller at production vessels responding to the fluctuation of gas vapors. In addition, it is a relief system for tank batteries with vapor recovery units that may not be able to handle unusual surges of gas.
  • Solar powered, eliminating the need for purchase power.
  • Low power fast-acting electric motor actuator. This allows for opening and closing without the use of venting solenoids.
  • High turndown ratio via multiple stages/burners with programmable start/stop points.
  • Multi-stage capabilities allow for customization including BTEX combustors for dehy’s/amine plants, higher pressure/split pressure incorporations for truck loading/unloading stations, as well as extending operability of the unit thru the entire lifecycle of the well or facility.
