Quasar Flare Stack Detection Systems
Pilot flame detection must be monitored to assure ignition of flared gases during flare operation. However, thermocouple failure due to thermal shock leaves operators without pilot monitoring capability until the next scheduled flare tip maintenance.
LumaSense’s E²T QUASAR family of detection systems are built for continuous duty monitoring of pilot flame (PM), flared gases (FM) and smoke particulate (SM) from flare stacks. The sightthrough optical system and choices of fields of view allow the QUASAR to be positioned up to ¼ mile (400 m) from the flare stack. Each of the systems includes a removable camera module, dual outputs, explosion-proof housing, internal heater and cooling.
