Flare Gas

Increased emphasis on protecting the environment, combined with evolving regulatory guidelines, is driving industry to improve its processes to be cleaner, more efficient and compliant with government rules.

In the United States, new regulations have been developed for the petroleum refinery industry—specifically the analysis and handling of flare gas streams.

Now, in addition to the sulfur measurements required by 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart Ja, refineries are looking toward the 2019 compliance deadline for the RSR changes to 40 CFR Part 63.

Regulatory updates affect flares associated with common process units such as:

  • Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units (FCCU)
  • Fluid Coking Units (FCU)
  • Delayed Coking Units
  • Fuel Gas Combustion Devices (Flares)
  • Sulfur Recovery Plants

Extrel’s MAX300-RTG Environmental Gas Analyzer is ideal for analyzing flare gas streams for H2S, Total Sulfur, BTU, and other contaminants. Extrel systems offer critical information for root cause analysis, and provide customers with the solution needed to analyze output and meet regulatory requirements.

EPA approved daily validations use standards with <300 ppm H2S.
