Description Paper from the AFRC 2016 conference titled Refinery Sector Rule Focus on Flare Combustion Control Parameters
Abstract Recent United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) regulations included in the; Refinery Sector Rule (RSR) modifications concerning flares have focused on improving; combustion efficiency at refinery flares. As part of these new regulations, the USEPA has; required facilities to comply with a Net Heating Value in the combustion zone (NHVcz) for each; affected flare. This compliance point requires active control of a flare that has not been required; previously. The RSR provided two methods for showing compliance with the NHVcz, the direct; method and the feed forward method. Each method has details that need to be considered and; the flare monitoring technologies chosen will likely drive the decision to which option a facility; utilizes. The presentation will provide a brief overview of the new flare requirements of the RSR; and will provide an in depth discussion of the flare control options.
