Flare Tips

Flare tips are available in various solutions, both in smokeless and non-smokeless operations. Flare gas must always have a minimum heat content in btu / scf:

  • Steam-assisted – 300 btu/scf
  • Air-assisted – 300 btu/scf
  • Non-assisted – 200 btu/scf

Steam-assisted and non-assisted flares:

  • 300 Btu/scf = 60 fps maximum
  • Greater than 1,000 btu/scf = 400 fps maximum 

Dispersion and toxic analysis:

Dispersion is performed on vent gases or flare gas in the event of loosing the flame on the top of the flare system. Under this scenario, the analysis will exhibit the vent plume coordinates and concentrations of hydrocarbon components in the plume.

  • Burner designed to suit available fuel i.e. natural gas, light or heavy oil, coke oven gas, mixed gas etc. as per customer request.
  • Each machine is completely assembled and tested in our special test area before shipment saving time on site for erection and commissioning.
  • Low maintenance and high reliability (our equipment are working for more than 20 years)
Horizontal Ladle Pre-heater:
  • The horizontal heating position of ladle is mainly used for preheating and keeping the ladle warm, after or before changing and cleaning of the slide gate. Especially here the proper sealing of the ladle mouth is done by means of the specially designed trolley mounted vertical lid. In, horizontal preheaters the lid sizes and shape shall change as per the ladle opening.
  • Heating stations are designed for single or various heating positions (e.g. The preheater is trolley mounted type)On request the preheater can be equipped with an additional door in the ladle cover for an oxygen purging lance.
  • Depending on the conditions on site, the unit can be designed for travelling on rails.
  • The movement can be effected pneumatically or electro-mechanical.
Vertical Ladle Pre-heater 

Vertical ladle heaters are used for preheating or drying all kinds of ladles. For maximum energy savings, specially designed suspended heat shieldguarantees a proper sealing of the ladle. The shields are available for various tasks and in different shapes and sizes to suit ladles. For preheating tasks (fast Heating), preheaters are equipped with a special designed burner with specific flame shape, that allows a high heat transfer from the flame to the lining.

  • For Ladle dryers where , very slow heating is required, (Soft heating), burners are designed mainly to work on excess air, they attain very slow heating rates (<10°C / h) – ideal for monolithic linings.
  • ATE heaters with an additional oxygen system achieve complete combustion with lowest emissions (this is especially used with dolomite bricks and pitch bonded linings).
  • Vertical heaters can be designed for single or various heating positions.

  • Low voltage heating elements – 60 / 80V – Flexible Ceramic Pad Type, available in various sizes They provide heat, through conduction heat transfer for preheat / PWHT of welded joints. The heat conductivity is excellent & electrical strength is high at elevated temperatures. The heating elements can be simply wrapped around the pipes or jobs and secured in position with strips. For pipe joints of different dia. / thk., you can use combination of different sizes of elements of same rating. The element tails are connected to the power source by suitably rated cabling system.
  • Cabling system – Feed, return, 2 way, 3 way, 4 way splitter cables between Power & the heating elements.
  • Temperature measurement & Recording system:

Temperature Recorder – This is portable unit for recording preheat and post heat temperatures up to 1200 Deg. C.

Thermocouple wire – is used to measure temperature and monitor the control aids. Thermocouple wire is of nickel chrome / nickel alumel or K-Type, twin 21 / 22 SWG wire asbestos covered and normally supplied in 100 m roll.

Thermocouple Attachment Unit – is used to attach a thermocouple to the weldmet.
