Panametrics’ flare.IQ technology significantly reduces methane slip emissions, minimizes costs from flaring operations, and improves transparency for flare operations. flare.IQ is a full stream flare solution, covering assisted flares associated with downstream Petrochemical and refinery, all the way to unassisted flares associated with upstream operations.
Air or Steam Assisted Flares: By using flare.IQ and its patented algorithm, operators can pull critical information about their flare system, including temperature, pressure, vent gas velocities, and gas composition to calculate the optimum levels of flare performance and ensure 98%+ high-efficiency flare combustion.
Unassisted flares: CE% (Combustion Efficiency) and PEMS (Predictive Emissions Modeling System Governmental): The use of flare.IQ for unassisted flares – largely represented in Upstream Oil & Gas operations – provides live monitoring of the combustion efficiency to ensure real-time data reporting. While the gas composition is more stable than what is seen in Downstream operations, when combustion efficiency drops, it is captured immediately, and remediation actions can be taken by the operator. It also provides predictive emissions data by calculating the CO2 being released to the atmosphere. This solution is easy to deploy and is cost-effective when compared to the alternatives for monitoring emissions.
Deploying flare.IQ, operators can also verify flare meters remotely. This helps ensure customers avoid any carbon tax penalties associated with flaring, but also improves efficiency and reduces the HSE risk of erecting scaffolding and deploying resources to manually verify flare meters.
