In the next five years the global revenue of Process Burners, Process Flares & Thermal Oxidizer Systems will maintain a stable annual growth rate expected in 2023 will be 1283.72 M USD, according to UpMarketResearch.com report.
As Chinese overall economic downward trend in the past few years and international economic situation is complicated in the next few years there will be many uncertainties. In the past few years more and more companies enter into Process Burners, Process Flares & Thermal Oxidizer Systems industry so overall market competition is fierce.
The Process Burners, Process Flares & Thermal Oxidizer Systems market was valued at 1050 Million US$ in 2017 and is projected to reach 1310 Million US$ by 2025 at a CAGR of 2.8% during the forecast period.
A flare system collects and discharges gas from atmospheric or pressurized process components to the atmosphere to safe locations for final release during normal operations and abnormal conditions. A flare system consists of a flare stack and pipes that feed gas to the stack. The type and amount of gas or liquids in the flare stack governs the sizing & brightness of the flare.
What does Flares are?
The word “flare” is used to describe a flame that is burning excess gas. This process usually occurs in refineries, as well as in certain chemical plants. These gases are generated when the production process is not working properly, when there is a loss of energy, or when the gases are released during maintenance periods.
There are more flares in the gas and oil production plants than in the refineries. It also occurs in some mines, as well as in many garbage dumps. These flares are intended to protect the refinery, and release the gases beyond the work areas. Refiners use flares as a safety device with which excess gas is removed.
Inside a boiler, the burners are the equipment that mixes the liquid or gaseous fuel with the oxidizer, generating the spark necessary for the combustion to start and injecting that flame generated inside the combustion chamber. Industrial burners are those that are installed in industrial boilers that generate hot water, hot air or steam for processes and work areas.
According to the definition of the characteristics provided by Naturgy, the types of industrial burners are based on some parameters:
- If we look at the fuel used, they will be classified as burners for natural gas, diesel, oil and all those petroleum gases.
- If we look at the way of operation, three classes can be distinguished: manual, semi-automatic and automatic burners depending on the different degrees of automation of the control of the functions of the device.
- If we pay attention to the placement of the burner with respect to the boiler, that is, at their disposal, we find horizontal burners and vertical burners.
Currently, industrial burners incorporate digital control systems that report the main variables that condition combustion, and control the continuous operation of the process through the evaluation of the different parameters.
Industrial burners can also incorporate speed control systems, which control the blower to suit the actual demand. This control can be carried out continuously or in different stages by means of frequency converters or variable speed drives. This control, by adapting to real demand, provides very important savings to the company, both in fuel and electricity.
Being such versatile equipment, they need to go through a calibration process on site, which usually consists of two stages.
1- The pre-regulation phase, in the absence of flame, in which the starting points, of minimum and maximum power are configured. These points allow presetting the flow rates for each of these states.
2- The regulation phase, in the presence of a flame, where it is verified that at each of the possible operating points the combustion results are as required. For this, it is necessary to measure the temperature obtained, the quantities of combustion products generated and the other parameters that characterize the combustion.
In order for the burner, the boiler and the rest of the installation to be coupled efficiently, the burner curve and its adaptation to the process must be taken into account. This curve shows us graphically the thermal power that the burner can provide depending on the pressure in the combustion chamber
Industrial burners also use digital speed controllers to work in a wider area, while devices with various speeds or mechanical regulations will have a more limited working area. Logically, it is also important to pay attention to the length, size and diameter of the flame provided by the burner, to adapt it as much as possible to the boiler’s combustion chamber.
Phases of Burner operation
- Fuel regulation
- Air regulation
- Flame control and / or combustion control
- Safety chain actuated by safety elements such as temperature, pressure, water quality or water level sensors
Thermal oxidizers reduce air pollution emissions from a variety of industrial processes. Using the principle of “thermal oxidation”in a combustion process, the contaminants within the polluted exhaust gas react with oxygen in a temperature controlled environment. The chemical oxidation reaction destroys the contaminants in the polluted exhaust gas before discharging it back into the atmosphere. What is released is an innocuous emission of CO2 water steam and heat.
