Multi-Point Ground Flares

Design Features

Our state-of-the-art design capabilities are backed by actual field verification gained through decades of experience designing some of the largest MPGF systems in the world. We have also invested significant resources to build test apparatus to allow characterization of LRGO array performance.  We have provided LRGO flare systems in numerous applications, including olefins and polyolefins, aromatics, LNG production, oil and gas production, refineries, pipeline operations, and more:

  • Hidden Flame
  • Short flame length burner design that provides reliable cross-light capability
  • High smokeless capacity
  • Little or no assist medium (steam or air) for smoke control
  • High hydrocarbon destruction efficiency (≥99.5% DRE)
  • Limited or no steam / air controls required to maintain high DRE

Flare Burner Design

The LRGO flare system features a unique range of burner designs that provide optimum flame stability, high hydrocarbon destruction efficiency (normally > 99.5% DRE) and many additional benefits. The LRGO-HC burner design is ideal for demanding applications when short flame length with reliable cross-lighting is required. Compared to conventional burners, the LRGO-HC burner allows for:

  • Shorter flame lengths
    – Reliable cross-lighting at greater burner spacing
    – Better cross-lighting of low heating-value gases
  • Improved smokeless performance and turndown
    – Efficient air entrainment
    – Better mixing
  • Shorter radiation fence
    – Reduced installation and maintenance costs
    – Less expensive foundation design

First-Stage Burners

The first stage of most MPGF systems requires a burner design that can produce smokeless flaring at turndown from purge rate to maximum rate. This typically requires utilizing steam-assisted or air-assisted burners on the first stage, which adds complexity to the design and controls. It also requires continuous utility usage (steam or blower power). This increases the likelihood of over-steaming or over-aerating the burners which can produce decreased hydrocarbon destruction efficiency.

The JZ Indair first-stage burner design utilizes a variable-slot mechanism to produce 100% smokeless flaring from purge through maximum flow rate without the use of any outside utilities. This provides a low-maintenance, simple operation design that is guaranteed to produce high DRE without operator involvement.

Performance Features

Our state-of-the-art Steamizer XP offers impressive performance features, including minimized environmental impact, reduced steam consumption, simple operation, and significantly lower operating costs.

  • Savings: The XP utilizes 30% to 40% less steam for smoke suppression than traditional technologies, resulting in significantly reduced operating and capital costs.
  • Increased Smokeless Capacity: Innovative primary steam/air eduction and secondary air entrainment techniques result in an increased smokeless capacity of 40% to 60% for a given steam flow rate.
  • Increased Tip Life: Damage due to thermal cycling is significantly reduced as a result of the XP’s unique design resulting in a long service life. The steam injection components are well protected from radiation and flame impingement compared to older flare designs.

Steam-Assisted Flares

Design Features

The XP flare design offers an ultra-high smokeless capacity, low noise operation, and eliminates the need for center steam and steam capping. With its efficient and simplified operation, the XP flare is the ideal choice for superior performance in smokeless flaring.

  • Shear Mixing: A converging nozzle directs the vent gas stream to intersect the steam/air stream at a slight angle. The patented design improves mixing resulting in exceptional smokeless performance. It is particularly efficient for olefins due to the exceptional mixing characteristics of the tip.
  • Steam/Air (S/A) Tube Efficiency: The XP flare is designed with straight S/A tubes instead of bent S/A tubes found in older designs. This innovation results in optimized air eduction efficiency that contributes to superior smokeless performance and reduced steam consumption.
  • Staged Steam Injection: The XP can be configured to use multiple discharge nozzles that allows for efficient operation at low vent gas flow rates. This feature greatly reduces the amount of steam needed during low flow conditions and can reduce or eliminate the need for supplement gas.
