Utility flares are the most economical flares used to safely ignite and destruct waste gas streams at any flow rate and under any environmental condition. This basic flare design is often the most appropriate solution to emergency flaring applications and for light natural gas vents.
A Hero Utility Flare Tip uses flame retention technology to lock down the flame onto the flare tip. These small, but critical, flame stabilizers are custom designed for stability at high Mach numbers. In an emergency, the Hero Utility Tip can easily operate at tip velocities of 0.8 Mach and higher without flame liftoff. Wind bonnets are not required with our flame retention technology. This reduces smoke formation on Hero Utility Flares.
Stainless Steel to withstand heat and corrosion resistance.
Provides a stable flame in all conditions up to 0.8 Mach.
Prevents air infiltration into the stack with minimal purge gas flows.
Specific Features and Benefits
Hero Flare guarantees a minimum of 98% destruction efficiency.
Available in guy-wire supported or free standing.
Liquid Knock Out:
All units are provided with a liquid knock out in the base of the flare
stack with level control connections for level switches, level site gauges
All utility flares greater than 200 MSCFD flow rate are equipped with an automatic continuously monitored pilot ignition system. For those flares less than 200 MSCFD, flow rate can utilize a continuously monitored direct spark ignition system.
Normal utility flare delivery is 2 days to 6 weeks. Hero Flare stocks common utility flares.
