Carbon dioxide is often used in fire extinguishers and snuffing systems with the intention of effectively extinguishing flames. When CO2 gas is a large percentage of a waste gas stream, at times it proves difficult to maintain a lit flare, without the use of assist gas or a flame ring. Flare Industries’ industry-proven Flame Ring Flare Technology is recommended in low-BTU applications such as those involving large quantities of CO2 gas. A circumferential ring of fire at the flare tip provides stable, reliable ignition and prevents potential auto-suppression of the flame in these low-BTU applications.
Mach-1 Sonic Flares are used in both onshore and offshore applications to dispose of high pressure waste gas streams with high smokeless capacities. By efficiently inducing high volumes of ambient air for more complete, smokeless combustion at sonic velocities, this advanced flaring technology allows for reduced levels of radiation, and can be placed at lower, less visible elevations, allowing for a more cost-effective flaring solution. Mach-1 sonic flare technology can be applied in multi-point orientations which accomodate flame length restrictions.
