Thermal Combustor System

The Thermal Combustor System is a market driven answer to a unique set of vapor combustion air pollution control questions. Highly concentrated vent gas emissions are common within the natural gas processing and production, petro-chemical, and chemical processing, industries. These emissions are commonly low in volume but very high in concentration. Historically answers to these emissions challenges have included inefficient and dangerous flare technology. Open flares have historically been used as safety relief devices. Over time, these safety relief flares have been applied as process vent control devices. Recent EPA challenges are disqualifying open flares as allowable control devices while the visible flame creates safety issues for many plants and may create objection from neighbors. For these reasons, enclosed flares have been developed to provide a means to combust high BTU (usually >300 BTU/scf).
