Mobile Gas Flare M - 402380
When commissioning or decommissioning pipelines in the low or medium pressure network, large volumes of natural gas must be discharged in a safe and environmentally friendly manner. Operational methane emissions in the gas distribution network are to be avoided or reduced as far as possible in order to achieve the ambitious national and international climate protection targets. The flaring of natural gas is an effective method of reducing methane emissions that are harmful to the climate. The currently published DVGW Code of Practice G 404 also recommends gas flares as an effective tool for reducing operational methane emissions. Our mobile gas flares meet all the requirements of the code of practice.
The Mobile Gas Flare M is a cost-efficient and compact flaring device that has been specially developed for use in pipeline work on gas pipelines in the low and medium pressure networks. The Mobile Gas Flare M is easy to transport, extremely quick to use and ensures complete and safe combustion of the gas. The flow rates are optimized for larger pipeline volumes so that even large quantities of gas can be flared in an optimal amount of time.
- Flaring device suitable for larger volumes in low and medium pressure
- Large gas flow
- Limited connectivity to the house
- Compact and quickly ready for use
- Clean, low-pollution combustion
- Integrated flame arrestor for safe operation
- Piezo igniter for automatic and safe flame ignition
- Pressure limitation to 1 bar: defined, safe working range
- High-quality workmanship, mainly stainless steel and brass
- Available complete with connection accessories in a case, consisting of: Hose, connection adapter with pressure reducer and ball valve and connectors for concentration and pressure measurement
For safe operation of the Mobile Gas Flare M, we recommend using the appropriate accessories.
The Mobile Gas Flare M is connected to the gas line via a gas-resistant hose (material NBR) with a length of 5 meters or optionally with a length of 10 meters via quick couplings (Сamloсk). For connection to the gas line, the use of the connection adapter Mobile Gas Flare M is recommended. The connection adapter can be screwed directly into the gas line via a 1" thread (ET, integrated O-ring seal). A sleeve shut-off valve and a pressure reducer are integrated in the connection adapter in order to control the gas flow safely and in a controlled manner on the one hand and not to exceed the permissible operating pressure of the gas flare (max. inlet pressure 1 bar) on the other hand. Suitable adapters for connecting the connection adapter (1" ET) to the gas line are available in the connection accessories section.
Alternatively, it is also possible to work with two gas hoses and the connection adapter in the middle, if the connection adapter can not be screwed directly into the pipe in the case of small blow-outs or lack of space. For this purpose, another gas hose (5 meters or 10 meters) and the adapters C25C or C25N are used.
Flaring times during decommissioning
In order to better estimate the time required for decommissioning, we have provided estimated flare times for the Mobile Gas Flare M in the table below.
The entries in the table indicate the estimated duration in minutes that is required at least to flare gas in a line with the given line volume (given in cubic meters) at a given starting pressure (given in bar) up to a final pressure of 50 mbar. If a further pressure reduction is required, the duration is extended accordingly.
Example: Start pressure 1 bar, total pipe volume 10 m3
Ultimate pressure 50 mbar
Expected duration: min. 6 minutes
|Max. volume flow||approx. 150 Nm3/h at 1 bar|
|Max. pressure flare inlet||1 bar|
|Max. pressure accessories||16 bar|
|Flare ignition type||piezo spark igniter with manual or permanent ignition|
