  • Greenstars portable monitoring for CHP and flares

    Greenstar’s award-winning KTK landfill site in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, is unusual in Ireland in that it has three gas engines feeding electricity to the grid and two flares. In Ireland, while flaring is common, engines are not. The flares are run in tandem with engines so that if an engine is ramped down for repair or service, the flare ramps up automatically. All are supplied by 122 ...

  • Refinery flare gas H2S removal

    A major Gulf Coast refinery was searching for a solution to reduce flare gas SO2 that was resulting from very high H2S concentrations during periodic venting events. Original considerations were limited to very costly upstream equipment changes or a sulphur recovery unit, all costing tens of millions of dollars. Macrotek was contracted to design and build a cost-effective H2S ...

  • Application of a Wireless Remote Monitoring System on a Landfill Flare Station

    ABSTRACT The Seminole Road Landfill flare station in DeKalb County, Georgia was previously equipped with an automatic telephone dialer system that contacted the operators of the flare via telephone when the flare station shut down and there were frequent flare station shut downs. During flare station shut downs all repairs required labor intensive response to physically visit the facility to ...

  • Replacing of mechanical compressors by gas ejectors in flare gas recovery systems

    One of the main concerns of humankind in this century is the global warming induced by the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. A promising process for controlling the atmospheric CO2 level is prevention of combustion in flares causing high losses of raw material and energy that could generate more desired products. In the present work, a flare gas ...

  • Stacking up: flare Monitoring from LumaSense

    Lenny Shaver, LumaSense Technologies’ director of product management, explains the company’s IR and pyrometer technologies FLARING systems are common in many industries to burn gases before they enter the atmosphere. The safe operation of a flaring system requires the continuous monitoring of pilot flames and flared gases to ensure that vented gases are ignited. As ...

  • Case study - ABUTEC’s medium temperature flare burns canning plant biogas

    A Northumberland, Pa.-based canning plant recently contacted ABUTEC, through ADI System Inc., for help combusting the biogases created during the canning process. During this process, foods that are being prepared for canning create biogases that are used in power generation for the local facility. Excess gases that are not used by the gensets are typically vented into atmosphere, which can ...
