The Peacock Burner was developed to flare liquid hydrocarbons without liquid fallout or soot formation (smoke). These burners provide excellent service for well testing operations and have been used in applications in the Gulf of Mexico and Arabian Gulf. When only oil is flared, a high pressure air or gas source is required to provide mechanical atomization which ensures the mixture is a fine mist as it exits the burner nozzle. This particular burner nozzle is designed to accept separate high pressure oil and air/gas streams. for maximum efficiency.
Turbo-Mix Air Assisted flares are comprised of two tandem risers (waste gas and air) and a blower system that provides supplemental combustion air. In contrast to the Slot Flow Air Assist Flare Design, the TMA employs tandem air and gas risers to provide a more economical flare package when a large quantity of smokeless air is required. Mixing of waste gas and combustion air at the flare tip exit optimizes mixing and ultimately improves combustion efficiency. Turbo-Mix Air Assisted flares generally dispose of heavier waste gases which have a greater tendency to smoke.
