Our AF Series Air Flares have been designed to provide smokeless operation with flow rates up to 80 MMscfd. This is achieved using a high-volume combustion air blower generally driven from a 480 VAC 3 Ø power source in conjunction with a high-pressure release option if applicable.
This unique design allows smokeless combustion to be accomplished from a very low minimum flow rate to the maximum rate as identified by the manufacturer without modulating the blower. This translates into a substantial savings by eliminating the need for a Variable Frequency Drive and Flow Meter.
Unlike other types of smokeless flares, the flare tip is “open ended” resulting in a very low pressure drop across the tip. This is ideal for flaring large amounts of tank vapors relieving at just a few ounces of pressure.
Once the flare has been sized using the customer supplied flare gas data and flow rate, this equipment will comply with EPA requirements as outlined in 40 CFR 60.18.
All of our flares are covered under one or more of the following Patents:
