The US EPA is targeting improvement of Flare Operation Practices. This includes better control and monitoring of supplemental gas, steam and air for better combustion efficiency, less emissions and reduced operating costs.

For more information read the EPA Article

So what can be done to assure compliance with these requirements? Effectively monitor and control the supplemental gas of the flare.

Our CalorVal can assist in this operation in the following way:



  • It reads the heating value of a variety of streams of varying quality
  • It measures the heating value of the vent gas over the full range of operating scenarios
  • It determines the heating value of the stream as a whole, not just the hydrocarbons, but also include the inerts, NH3, CO, H2, etc.


  • It monitors the vent gas and automatically control supply of fuel using its on-board relays.



How do you make sure your flare stack meets the requirements of the Clean Air Act?
