Landfill Gas Flare Performance

Performance Requirements

Solar Spark® Vent Flares are designed to provide consistent combustion under various conditions. Reliable operation is critical in order to meet customer expectations and regulatory compliance.

Gas Quality:

Combusted gas will have an equivalent methane concentration between approximately 30% to 60% of total gas. The remainder will be principally CO2.

Gas Flow Rate:

The flare unit must perform satisfactorily, providing effective combustion and re-ignition of the gas within the flares specified flow range. Inlet gas pressure corresponding to these flow rates is typically 0.5 to 5 inches of water column.

Flame Temperature:

The flare unit must be capable of burning the gases at temperatures averaging approximately 900°F. to 1200°F. depending upon gas quality, flow rate and wind velocity. This will normally produce thermal destruction efficiencies of greater than 99% for volatile compounds.

Re-ignition Limits:

An appropriately sized, properly installed and operating flare should provide continuous re-ignition of gases in less than 60 seconds after flameout regardless of wind direction or velocity.
