E²T Quasar M8100

Continuous Flare, Pilot, and Flare Monitoring Detection Instruments

Advanced Energy's E2T Quasar M8100 series instruments provide continuous monitoring and detection of flare stack pilot (PM), smoke (SM), and flares (FM).

  • Flame detection up to 400 m away
  • Detection of hydrocarbon and hydrogen flames
  • CSA/US and ATEX explosion-proof housing
  • Automatic gain control for adverse weather conditions
  • Modular opto-electronic package for easy removal from housing

Overview

The E2T Quasar M8100 is available in three models.The M8100SM provides continuous monitoring of flare stack smoke levels, the M8100PM enables continuous duty monitoring of pilot flames on flare stacks, and the M8100FM monitors flared gases.

The Quasar M8100 Series utilizes multi-wavelength infrared detection and electronic circuitry to automatically compensate for signal variation due to rain, snow or fog. Observed flaring is reported via a 4 and 20 mA signal.

The instrument can be mounted on a control center roof and sighted to monitor flaring on distant flare stacks. It is available with a sturdy mounting system designed to resist movement in high winds and provide vernier sighting capabilities for easy target acquisition at long sighting distances.

Benefits

  • Install a reliable and accurate flare pilot monitoring system without service interruption
  • Use the high-resolution optical system and various spot sizes to position the system up to 1/4 mile (400 m) away from the monitored flare stack
  • Minimize weather impacts with automatic gain control
  • Increase safety and environmental protection

 

Features

  • Custom electronics adapt to target movement, varying luminosity, and most climate conditions
  • Five optics options to ensure the highest flame signal detection
  • Status lights: green and red
  • Heavy duty swivel mount included for easy mounting, alignment, and target focusing
