Importance Of Flare Stack Monitoring

There are practical and regulatory requirement to monitor the flare stacks. Hydrocarbon gases escaping into the atmosphere it can be hazardous to the health of personnels and affect the environment. To prevent harmful emissions released from flame into the environment government regulates the stack flame which is required to be monitored at all times.

Applications for Infrared Thermal Camera:
– Oil and Gas refineries (well drilling, offshore rigs, gathering, distribution)
– Chemical process plants
– Gas distribution infrastructure
– Petroleum plants

Accuopt System Solution

The LTE-640 offers a wide detection range from 0°C to 500°C (32°F to 932°F), so if the gas composition changes and affects the temperature of the flame, the LTE 640 continues to supply an accurate measurement. IR Camera allows the operator to set up to 5 region of interest. This means it can continue to monitor the flame even if it is moves by wheatear, providing high low temperature alarm for each region.

In order to improve reliability and reduce risk, Accuopt LTE series thermal imaging camera integrated with INFRAVIEW software provides continuous monitoring. Leakages of toxic gases at flare stacks are monitored by system which can trigger alarm when a leakage is detected, providing early warning for better maintenance planning. INFRAVIEW allows you to control the camera and record the view and store the capture video/Image as well as measured temperature data.

The ability within software to draw specific regions of interest (ROI) is a real time-saver by providing the operators with only data they need. The software analyzes the data and compare with customer’s set parameter and will trigger an alarm. On an alarm situation, the concerned operator will get the leakage alerts in the software screen  and also with Accuopt make I/O Module integrated with the system user can get multiple digital as well as relay outputs. All data can be saved for process analysis and quality control. Data can be transmitted over Ethernet/OFC (Optical Fiber Cable) or wirelessly (Optional) to the control room as per requirement.
