Petrochemical Emissions Monitoring
Operations in the Oil and Gas sector require the most accurate and reliable environmental process system monitoring. LumaSense offers accurate (Gas) flame temperature measurements with our Smart FMA algorithm in destruction furnaces and pilot monitoring systems for flaring systems.
Thermocouple measurement provides only refractory measurement not useful for confirmation of Gas (Flame) temperatures and typical Single Channel Infrared Pyrometers do not compensate for changing flame transparencies making Gas (Flame) measurement errors with lower than actual temperatures. A low error in the flame measurement will require added assist gas and this increases the operational costs to the owner.
LumaSense’s E²T PULSAR 4 Advanced is designed to measure two wavelengths for continuous and instantaneous measurement of Refractory Temperature (RT), Gas Temperature (GT) and Integrated Temperature (FF).
Flare Stack Monitoring
Flare systems require pilot flame confirmation for safe operation to confirm there is an ignition source for flared gases. Flares which do not ignite will release hazardous gases into the atmosphere, leading to safety risks to infrastructure, personnel and environmental non-compliance with environmental regulations.
Pilot flame detection must be monitored to assure ignition of flared gases during flare operation. 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)
- smoke particulate (SM)
