The first role of flares is to maintain plant safety by protecting the plant from excursions, upsets, and emergency conditions. As the world works to address environmental concerns, Callidus® flare technologies also play a critical role in reducing plant emissions.
During emergency conditions, potentially harmful or explosive gasses are released to the flare for plant safety. But during normal operating conditions, the flare still plays a vital role disposing of vent streams.
Callidus is at the forefront of improving emissions through flare technologies. Using CFD modeling and extensive research at state-of-the-art Combustion Test Centers, Callidus has greatly improved smokeless capacity. Forging ahead from efficient Upper Steam Flares and Inner Steam/Inner Air Flares, Callidus has developed the Hemisflare that reduces smoke even more. With our proven Totally Enclosed Ground Flare, Callidus can provide 100 percent smokeless technology.
Lower Emissions = Higher Profits
Along with the environmental benefits, the efficiencies of Callidus flare technologies benefit a plant’s bottom line. The improved safety features and operational efficiency lower costs, and the significantly reduced emissions cut regulatory costs and fines charged in many regions. Just as important, the advancements in burner technologies and auxiliary solutions make equipment more efficient and reliable, increasing performance while reducing maintenance costs.
Research and field experience shows that Callidus technology can reduce flare VOC emissions by 75 percent and burner NOx emission by 50 percent, all while improving plant performance.
