Flare gas systems are used to burn off and dispose of waste and excess gases in oil and gas production, refining and storage operations worldwide. Flare stacks are installed in oil refineries, chemical process plants, well drilling operations, offshore platforms, transport ships, gas distribution infrastructure and landfills as part of gas waste and safety systems. Accurately and reliably measuring are gas is critical for maintaining safe working environments that protect people, assets and the environment from potentially hazardous combustible gases. Flare gas flow meters or are gas meters (FGM) are intelligent tools that report on flared gases, detecting leaks and alerting personnel about anomalies in processes, in order to comply with safety and environmental reporting. Keeping all relevant personnel informed about are gas conditions is paramount to safety and efficiency in any oil and gas operation.
With the aegex10TM Intrinsically Safe Tablet and ABLE FlareMaster, oil and gas operators can safely monitor and optimize their flare gas systems. Improve monitoring accuracy and compliance Using the aegex10TM intrinsically safe tablet as a hazardous area approved to interface with the FlareMaster meter, personnel can optimize the performance of ultrasonic are gas meters by significantly reducing measurement uncertainty and ensuring the sustainability of measurement during the most challenging process upsets and anomalies. The operator can view on the Aegex tablet a real-time display of process data, including:
ABLE Instruments & Controls Ltd.’s FlareMaster DataFlow application running on the Aegex tablet gathers and analyses data in conjunction with the FlareMaster Enhanced Density Module (EDM) to provide the are gas meter with full are gas density inputs. The application presents a real-time display of are gas process data, including mass and standard volume ow, totalized ow, velocity, process temperature and pressure.
