FAST Gas Assist Tip has been designed to provide smokeless operation of heavy tank vapors typically emitted from tank battery installations as well as aid in the smokeless or near smokeless operation of lighter gases at higher flow rates of gas typical of compressor stations.
This equipment will comply with 40 CFR 60.18 Method 22 using propane at a flow rate 127 mcfd however smokeless operation at a much higher flow rates are expected while flaring gas with molecular weights closer to that of natural gas.
Smokeless operation is accomplished by introducing a regulated amount of assist gas or compressed air into the FAST Gas Assist Tip manifold where it is mixed with air and introduced into the flare flame at a high velocity, 360° around the flame. The result is a cleaner flare gas burn using only a fraction of assist gas or compressed air normally required by other gas assist flare tips.
The FAST Gas Assist Tip can be installed on virtually any utility flare with a 4” or 6” flare tip with no welding required.
This system is not designed to handle particulates in the flare or fuel gas stream including condensate, drilling mud, liquid hydrocarbons, contaminated water, etc. Equipment is available to remove these particulates from the flare gas stream and should be considered if liquids and/or solid materials are expected.
