Steam assisted flares are flares designed to dispose of heavier hydrocarbon gases which have a tendency to smoke. In order to prevent smoke formation, steam is injected into the waste stream using peripheral steam rings, center stream spargers and/or inner induction tubes. Steam flares are used in applications where high pressure steam is available on site. Steam flares are typically found in downstream applications where high efficiency combustion of heavy hydrocarbons is required. AEREON supplies both internal steam ring (SteaMax-i) and external steam ring (SteaMax-e) designs for its steam assisted flares.
