Flares of the 1950s, '60s and '70s contrast sharply with today's technology for elevated and enclosed flares
Flares of the 1950s, '60s and '70s contrast sharply with today's technology for elevated and enclosed flares. This six page color reprint from Hydrocarbon Processing (RP94-12) provides practical information about:
- safety and reliability
- dependable pilots and ignition systems
- effective smokeless flaring without any flame pulsation
- noise or thermal radiation problems
- flare turndown ratios
- flare history in the hydrocarbon processing industry
- effective turn-back of all intruding air into elevated flare burners, stacks and headers to prevent burn-back in flare tips and stacks, extend burner life, eliminate costly and dangerous maintenance- and the possibility of catastrophic explosions.
Using new safety guidelines, older flare systems can also be redesigned to alleviate or eliminate operating problems, meet emission-performance criteria, and maintain a good-neighbor status with adjacent communities.
