Relief Flare Analysis using a Dynamic Simulation of your Plant

Inprocess oral contribution to MECCE held in May 2023. This presentation conducted by Dr. Miquel Angel Alos explains the benefits of dynamic simulation as an alternative method for defining relief loads and enhancing the understanding of relief processes.

Flare Systems Analysis

Is the current equipment size appropriate for safe plant operation?

Save CapEx without compromising safety by benefiting from previously oversized flare networks.

Dynamic Flare Load Analysis

Discover how Inprocess’ wide experience in dynamic flare analysis can help you to avoid acquiring unnecessary new materials and equipment in flare systems revalidation projects, without ever compromising safety.

Beyond Guesswork

During a flare release, the temperature of the flare network has a strong dependence on the relief source and on ambient conditions. During a relief of hot gases, contraction of the gases could occur due to the cool-down to ambient conditions. The rate of contraction velocity is accelerated if cooling leads to condensation of the contained gas components.

Taking care of flare header pressure

Inprocess authors discuss the application of dynamic simulation to analyse potential trips of the HIPPS system at the flare header of a central processing facility during trunkline pigging operations.

Reviewing the situation

The paper describes the steps that should be taken during a flare network capacity assessment, using both a conventional approach or dynamic simulation.
