- Service & Support
The FlareSpection™ system provides extremely clear and reliable flare image and pilot flame monitoring of multiple flare tips. It enables you to remotely and automatically confirm flare operation and detect differences in flare stack heat signatures. Via special spectral ranges, calibrations, and optics, the FlareSpection system can focus clearly through moisture, heavy rain, and fog at distances up to 300 m away.
- Detect differences in flare stack heat signatures when monitoring multiple flare tips in close proximity
- Ensure that vented gases are ignited and confirm combustion in the flaring process
- Gain reliable long-term monitoring by overcoming thermocouple failure, flame movement, varying luminosity, and adverse climatic conditions
- Easily connect to the plant's DCS via protocols such as Modbus and OPC, as well as connections to pilot ignitors via traditional I/O relay modules
- Telephoto (200 mm) lens enables detailed view of flares from 300 m distances and beyond
- Easy installation and maintenance from remote mounted location
- Focus clearly through moisture, heavy rain, and fog (even at great distances)
- Available adjustable mount and base
- Stainless-steel enclosure with an integrated sighting tube to prevent dust and dirt on the window
- Advanced software to log performance, record video, and set up alerts for measurements that may fall outside of the plant’s preset limits
