Monitoring System Keeps Tabs On Pilot Flames And Flared Gases

LumaSense Technologies introduces the next generation Quasar 2 M8100-EXP monitoring and detection instrument for continuous duty monitoring of pilot flame and flared gases from flares. Typically, flare pilots are monitored with thermocouples, but these often fail due to thermal shock, extreme heat, and vibrations during flaring events. Additional methods, such as non-contact pilot monitoring, are common in the industry to outlast the life of failed thermocouples.

 

The E2T Quasar 2 series instruments are instruments designed for continuous duty monitoring/detecting of pilot flame and flared gases from flares. The base system provides low-cost basic flare pilot monitoring capabilities. The advanced model has an intensity output that allows for a setpoint of mA level to be set in a client’s DCS for both the pilot and flaring status signals from the same unit. Additional add-on features are available for a configurable product to meet a wide range of client flare types, monitoring requirements and budget.
