Rapid and variable solutions generally play a significant role in the process industry, whether for complete plants or individual sub-process systems. Because they can be deployed flexibly, they offer economic benefits while also reducing technical complexity and saving time. The resulting cost-savings can prove especially advantageous to smaller operations when it comes to overcoming critical competitive barriers.
Bilfinger disposes over the necessary expertise to manufacture mobile products and systems within its own production sites, either on a serial basis or customized to special customer requirements. We have already developed various mobile solutions that our customers have successfully put to use.
The mobile flare stack is another logical step along this path. It is a product solution allowing us to make available a high-temperature flaring system having all the features of a stationary system, even on very short notice.
The mobile flare stack can be used wherever customers do not have a stationary flaring system in place. It provides a particularly viable alternative for enterprises in the oil & gas and chemical & petrochemical industries, as well as for production and storage facilities or grid operators.
FUNDAMENTALLY, THE FEATURE OF MOBILITY CAN BE CARRIED OVER TO ANY NUMBER OF PLANT CONCEPTS, WITH ITS FLEXIBILITY CREATING SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS IN TERMS OF LOWER COSTS, REDUCED TECHNICAL COMPLEXITY, AND TIME SAVED.
- Based on mature technology
- Meets our high standard of safety
- Flexible and environmentally friendly
- Ready for immediate use
- User-friendly operation
- Frees up the capacity of existing systems
- Taylor-made solutions to client requirements
The mobile flare stack is securely mounted on a trailer vehicle, allowing it to be rapidly transported to the desired deployment site. Both the body assembly and the chassis of the trailer can be variably adjusted to meet the specific requirements of each customer. The mobile flare stack’s safe operability and readiness for use are not affected by transport-related shocks or vibrations or by changing weather conditions.
Conceptual design and deployment
The flare stack was conceived for scheduled inspection, maintenance or repair work as well for unscheduled use, e.g. in response to accidental gas leaks.
- Easily transportable thanks to compact construction design
- Can be operated autonomously for several hours on battery power
- The flaring system’s arm is raised to the desired height via a hydraulic power train
- User-friendly operation via touch panel
- All required consumables, such as nitrogen and propane, are carried along on board.
In addition, Bilfinger’s flare stacks also meet the requirements of the Technische Anleitung zur Reinhaltung der Luft (TA Luft, Technical Instructions on Air Quality Control).
