flare burner

Kane Energy Services is able to supply a wide range of flare burner systems according to clients’ individual needs and requirements.

Utility Flare Burners

These systems are used to effectively burn lighter waste gas where smokeless flaring is not going to be a concern.

This type of burner is simple in design and can be used for gas exit velocities up to 0.75 mach.

Single Point Sonic Flare Burners

This device is designed to effectively dispose of lighter waste gases using pressure as the motive force, up to mach 1.0 exit velocity.

They are specifically used where system back-pressure can be as high as 90psig, and are typically installed where smokeless requirements are minimal, such as pigging operations and emergency blow-downs.

Multi-Point Sonic Flare Burners

These units are also used to effectively dispose of waste gases using pressure, but designed to provide a short stable flame which is less affected by wind, where a long flame length cannot be tolerated such as on offshore platforms, heavily forested or urban areas.

Multi-point burners effectively dispose of heavier molecular weight gases, while providing a smokeless flaring operation.

Steam-Assisted Flare Burners

These systems are used primarily where flare activity needs to be smokeless for the day-to-day operational gas releases.

They are designed for very heavy gas releases such as those typically found in a crude oil refinery or petro-chemical facility.

Air-Assisted Flare Burners

The air-assisted variant presents an alternative to the steam-assisted model, but with fewer operational costs and maintenance.

Air-assisted flares are typically installed when steam is not available and utilise varied blower arrangements to inject air into the flame in order to reduce smoke.

These systems are perfect for day-to-day operational flare gas releases such as propane and butane.
