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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
*MCFD rating is based on specific gravity of 1.05 and a BTU of 1800. Different flow rates and pressures can be accommodated but will require a completed RFQ sheet.
