Flare Industries’ FIRECAT Thermal Oxidizers are incinerators that maintain a specific destruction temperature and residence time to ensure high destruction efficiencies (98% – 99.99%). A FIRECAT system precisely monitors and controls the flow of air, assist gas, in order to obtain prescribed temperatures in the combustion chamber. This type of equipment is ideal for sensitive areas that require extremely low emissions, reduced flame visibility, minimal heat and noise, ease of emissions sampling, and smokeless combustion.
Fully Enclosed Ground Flares
The Enclosed Ground Flare destroys a waste stream, but does not maintain a constant temperature while doing so, simplifying the control scheme, and allowing the overall system to be more economical. These systems allow for reduced flame visibility, minimal heat and noise, real-time emissions sampling, and smokeless combustion. These flares may require supplemental assist gas streams depending on whether the process stream can sustain combustion. by ensuring proper residence time, Fully Enclosed Ground Flares attain relatively high destruction efficiencies.
Enclosed Ground Flares -Combustidizer
The Combustidizer Enclosed Ground Flare is a temperature controlled system, that allows for reduced flame visibility, minimal heat and noise, real-time emissions sampling, and smokeless combustion. Combustidizers may require supplemental assist gas streams depending on whether the process stream can sustain combustion or not. Moreover, these systems are popular in applications that require non-visible flames.
Lo-NOX Thermal Oxidizer
Flare Industries’ Lo-NOx thermal oxidation technology is used to destroy a wide range of gas that may generate large quantities of NOx when combusted. This cutting edge technology employs multiple combustion chambers, air and water quenches, advanced refractory materials, a proprietary burner design, and a complex PLC driven control scheme. The Lo-NOx thermal oxidizer provides high destruction efficiency, low emissions, and significantly reduced NOx levels in efforts to comply with local and state environmental regulations.
Multi-point Ground Flare
When real estate is available, multi-point ground flare (MPGF) systems are an economical approach to smokeless combustion of large amounts of process gas. By inducing air to a large array of high-pressure burning points, smokeless combustion can be achieved with high turndown, while concealing all radiation within walls. MPGF systems provide smokeless capacity an assist medium, involve no moving parts, and require low utilities since burners are designed to crosslight, minimizing the number of pilots necessary. Moreover, MPGF systems eliminate ground level radiation through the use of walls.
Recuperative Thermal Oxidizers
Recuperative Thermal Oxidizers are complex incineration systems that employ shell and tube heat exchangers, boilers, or hot oil heaters to recover energy from high temperature flue gases. These systems can utilize a recuperative cycle to minimize fuel gas consumption, allowing for economical operation. Moreover, this type of equipment is ideal for sensitive areas that require heat recovery, extremely low emissions, minimal noise, and smokeless combustion. Catalytic and combination thermal/catalytic versions of this equipment are also available from Flare Industries.
Tail Gas Themal Oxdizers
Hydrogen sulfide or H2S is a lethal gas generated in refineries, petrochemical plants, and gas handling facilities. Sulfur recovery units produce tail gas that contain relatively substantial amounts of H2S. Flare Industries designs a special type of thermal oxidizer, designed to eliminate the H2S components, while inhibiting the creation of corrosive acid by-products. Systems of this nature typically include dispersion stacks in efforts to disperse trace H2S and SO2 particles. These highly efficient systems significantly reducing the impact of environmentally offensive compounds.
Regenerative Themal Oxdizer
Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTO) are waste gas incinerators that employ multiple beds of ceramic media that absorb heat from the exhaust gas and use this captured heat to preheat the incoming process streams. RTO’s are often used in applications such as at paint booths, printing mills, and paper mills which produce low VOC concentrations in relatively higher flow rates. This technology eliminates these streams in a highly efficient and cost effective manner while minimizing the need for fuel gas. Moreover, they can acheive ~99% destruction efficiency with 95% heat recovery.
