Quad O Designed Enclosed Combustors
With the roll out of Quad O regulations in the USA, crude/condensate tank batteries and well pads are required to conform to reduced emission levels if they have the potential to emit over 6 tons of VOC per annum. One of the three emission control end-of-line devices can be used: Flares, Enclosed Combustors or VRUs. The Abutec Enclosed Combustor product line allows customers to meet these new standards while also eliminating visible flames and smoke.
The heart of the Abutec Enclosed Combustor is the burner design, which has extremely high turndown. The burner uses special flame spreading technology to maximize the air-fuel mixing, thereby, guaranteeing smokeless performance for gases even as heavy as butane, with as little as 2 oz./in2 of supply pressure. These are very typical conditions in the tank batteries.
The Abutec Quad 0 Enclosed Combustors are available in three standard sizes, AB 20, AB 100 and AB 200, covering applications such as tank battery vapor destruction, truck loading, biogas, landfill gas emergency flares and any low-flow waste gas stream incineration. The Abutec burner's performance curves show the wide applicability of the product line.
AEREON did not stop with just combustion quality, Abutec combustors are built to last. The systems are constructed of stainless steel, eliminating paint maintenance and corrosion, and extending the product life substantially over carbon steel. The systems are all designed for the most stringent seismic zones, as well as wind speeds up to 90 mph. To ensure we can meet even the most remote challenges with limited utilities, we offer a completely solar-powered ignition system with a two-week battery backup. With the combination of features they offer, Abutec combustors can be installed anywhere, withstanding harsh conditions from Bakken winters to Permian summers.
