Ground Flare Systems
There are two types of ground flare system.
The standard burner is normally used on applications where flame retention time and temperature are not so critical. Typically on this type of burner the size remains constant and quantity increases depending on the gas flow rates.
The high temperature burner is used for achieving a higher level of flame control and temperature. The flame is much shorter on this type of burner sitting just above the air ports. With this type of burner a temperature of 950 -1000°C can be expected without automatic air control.
High temperature burners are generally becoming more widespread and are made of 304 stainless steel.
