Flare Stack Advantages ADVANTAGES

EPA Requirements

Plant Process Flare Stacks are used to burn gas during drilling and completing operations. This allows gas to be burned at a safe distance from the well head. This creates a much safer environment for workers. Our Flare Stacks are also designed and built to MR0175 NACE standard.

Flare Systems Meet All EPA Requirements

Flare Stacks are equipped with a gas pilot that is red with a shot-tube type ignition system on our standard equipment. We also offer an electronic igniter that sparks every 2 seconds to ensure minimal gas escaping without being burned. Available in 4” to 10” in diameter and 25’ to 60’ in height. These can be either trailer or skid mounted with guy wires to secure once in the upright operating position. Fully self sufficient, solar charging hydraulic system to lower and raise stack easily by one or two operators. Flares are equipped with a counter-balancing valve that serves two important functions. One is it makes the raising and lowering function very smooth as well as serves to stop the movement should a hydraulic hose ruptures during operations. Flares can also be purchased with an integral liquid collector/knock-out. Offered both as ASME coded or uncoded versions.

Plant Process open flare systems are guaranteed to meet EPA requirements for 40 CFR 60.18 and have destruction removal efficiency (DRE) of 98%. If higher destruction is required, an enclosed flare system may be utilized if it is economically practical. Our designs are based on experience with flare installations and flow medium analysis supplied by customer. Plant Process is a leader in flare system innovation and design, having supplied and installed successful, proven systems nationwide. From our use of modern structural and control techniques, to our proven flare tip and seal designs, Plant Process is committed to manufacturing the best flares built. We are able to accomplish this goal in part due to the following: Plant Process believes in safety first. Our flare system designs adhere to the strictest of safety standards. Flares are of the highest quality. Flare Pilots are designed for years of reliable, continuous operation. Plant Process Flame Retention Rings promote stable combustion and prevent lift-off at high exit velocities. Plant Process Purge Seals are designed for maximum efficiency and low operating cost. Prompt and reliable pilot ignition/ monitoring systems allow for optimum performance of the flare systems. Our experience and relentless pursuit to keep our customers happy are unmatched in the combustion and flare industries.

Flare Stack Pilot Igniter

Plant Process’ SP8 Series Spark Ignited Pilots are designed to provide an ignition source for small to medium size flares. Ignition of the pilot gas is assured by an intermittent spark in the pilot nozzle every two seconds regardless of the pilot flame temperature. Control for the SP8 Series Pilots includes a Spark Oscillator Module, thermocouple controller (with alarm contacts and an analog temperature retransmission signal), battery and battery charger in a Nema 4 fiberglass enclosure. The standard controls for the SP8 Series Pilots are designed to operate on 120 VAC and will provide 10 hours of operation during power disruption. Minimum methane requirement for this pilot is 70scfh@ 5 psi. As with all of our equipment, custom pilots and controls are offered to meet field requirements. • • • •
