Tri-Point Elevated Flare Systems

High Turn Down Ratio Flare (HTDR-Flare)

The Tri-Point High Turn Down Ratio Flare (HTDR-Flare) is the innovative emissions reduction solution to achieve smokeless operation and compliance to Quad-O and 40 CFR 60.18 EPA regulations. Utilizing a proprietary tip design, this non-assisted flare ensures there are no visible smoke emissions across the full operational range of just a few ounces of pressure to in excess of 30 psig.  The Tri-Point HTDR Elevated Flare utilizes a variable orifice design to safely and efficiently combust Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions in excess of 98% efficiency.  One HTDR-Flare allows for the inclusion of both high pressure and low pressure gas streams in a single device mitigating the requirement for multiple flares.

APPLICATIONS

  • Crude Oil Storage Batteries
  • Midstream Facilities
  • Offshore Platforms
  • Gas Processing
  • Mining Operations
  • Landfills
  • Petrochemical and Chemical
  • Petroleum Refining
  • Anywhere smokeless flaring is required

VARIABLE FLOW CAPACITY OPERATION

Tri-Point HTDR flare operates with a variable area nozzle that optimizes air and waste gas mixing for 100% smokeless operation as the gas stream pressure varies.  Specially oriented “pilot” ports allow for ounce pressure operation when the gas pressure is low and main nozzle area is closed.

REPLACEMENT FLARE TIPS

If the flare you are currently operating is smoking and
not meeting the requirements of EPA 40 CFR 60.18,
The Tri-Point High Turn Down Ratio Flare replacement
tips are a safe and economical retrofit option. Our
flanged connection allows the HTDR model line to easily
replace other manufacturers’ ineffective flare tips. The
Tri-Point Service team can replace your flare tip today!
