FlarePro Process Mass Spectrometer

FlarePro Process Mass Spectrometer

The FlarePro is a quadrupole process mass spectrometer providing fast, accurate component and BTU content measurements, even when confronted with widely changing flare gas streams.

Field testing has shown that the FlarePro offers more detailed and relevant data faster than gas chromatography, and provides BTU numbers equivalent to those provided by a calorimeter, but with greater specificity.

Determining the heating values of vent gas is important in combustion monitoring, because sufficient combustible material must be continuously present to achieve high combustion efficiencies.

Meeting the recommended US EPA method for calibration, 40 CFR 63.671 (e)(2)(ii), the FlarePro has been developed to assist refiners in meeting US EPA regulations for flare stack combustion in the hydrocarbon processing industry.

The FlarePro’s modular design and self-diagnostic capabilities make it easy to maintain, and significantly reduces the amount of operational downtime.

The FlarePro is supported by AMETEK’s Process 2000 software package for easy set-up, operation and calibration. This software also provides advanced alarm and automation capabilities.

Mass spectrometry offers speed and specificity in the flare gas stream, obtaining calculations in less than 10 seconds. This is significantly faster than using a chromatograph.

The FlarePro is the solution for fast, accurate determination of flare gas heating values using mass spectrometry – Find out more.
