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.
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.
