Railroad Loading Combustor

Railcar 1
Railcar 2
Railcar 3

The transportation of oil via railcar is proving to be a cost-effective method for moving bulk cargo. However, as the move to rail gains momentum, midstream companies must examine the need for enclosed combustion systems to burn off harmful vapors.

Because railcars are tanks, the emissions produced during the loading process are regulated. ABUTEC enclosed flares are regulation compliant and customized for the unique needs of rail car facilities.

Flaring of vapors from oil and gas railcars diminishes waste gas emissions, allowing midstream players to become compliant. Because ABUTEC combustors are enclosed, ignition of the flare is protected and designed to prevent the venting of gasses due to environmental or performance factors. These enclosed combustors are engineered to burn gasses with high efficiency and very low emissions. ABUTEC enclosed combustors are one of only a handful of products of their kind available to the current market that are compliance ready.

QUAD O COMPLIANT

ABUTEC understands that compliance with emissions regulations is paramount for our customers. In accordance with EPA regulations, all combustion control devices must reduce site emissions to less than six tons yearly with a 95% destruction device. ABUTEC’s enclosed combustors are compliance ready and exceed all Quad O standards with greater than 99% destruction and removal efficiency (DRE).

LOW EMISSIONS

All ABUTEC combustors are tested and certified for the Quad O regulation and operate at 99% DRE. Surpassing the current EPA requirements is significant because of the projected raise from 95% to 98% in the coming years. Waste emitted from an ABUTEC combustor is 21 times cleaner than unburned methane, is smokeless, odorless, and produces no light pollution or radiant heat.

FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE

Whether you need a smaller unit for a facility loading three or four railcars at once, or a much larger, customized combustor capable of vapor destruction of many rail cars at once, ABUTEC products are fully customizable to meet your needs.

Flaring Features

Flaring of vapors from oil and gas railcars diminishes waste gas emissions, allowing midstream players to become compliant. Because ABUTEC combustors are enclosed, ignition of the flare is protected and designed to prevent the venting of gasses due to environmental or performance factors. These enclosed combustors are engineered to burn gasses with high efficiency and very low emissions. ABUTEC enclosed combustors are the only products of their kind available to the current market that are compliance ready.

ABUTEC Advantages

THE WHOLE PACKAGE

ABUTEC’s enclosed technology offers a completely enclosed frame, temperature monitoring and control, data logging of key parameters (such as temperature, pressure and run time) and full automatic operation.

SAME BENEFITS, LOWER COST

ABUTEC’s High Temperature Flare is a completely enclosed combustor with low NOx and CO emissions, greater than 99.99% DE, full 10:1 turndown without gas booster, offers the lowest make-up fuel consumption and is able to burn very low calorific gas. An HTF is a more affordable option to a traditional enclosed combustor.

THIRD-PARTY TESTED

The HTF Enclosed Flare has achieved less than 0.025 lbs/mmBTU NOx and greater than 99.99% destruction efficiency in recent third party emission tests.

FAQ’s
How do I know what size combustor I need?
Choosing the right combustor is based upon the incoming flow rate in ft3/hour and the gas composition. The critical information is the heating value, or BTU, of the processed gas measured in BTU/ft3. Adding together the BTU/ft3 and the flow rate gives you the burning rate, measured in BTU/hour. Based on this information, you will be able to select the right combustor for your needs. And of course, ABUTEC sales representatives are always available to answer your questions.
What other technology is included with an enclosed combustor?
ABUTEC’s enclosed combustor design includes a completely enclosed flame, temperature monitoring and control, data logging of key parameters (such as temperature, pressure and run time) and fully automated operation. This technology allows users to record and track the performance of our enclosed combustor operations.
How can an enclosed combustor help my company?
Use of enclosed combustors is an integral piece of the extraction and transportation process. It allows companies to operate safely and affordably in extreme conditions while also complying with strict EPA regulations.
How do I maintain an enclosed combustor?
ABUTEC offers unmatched field service and will deliver, commission and maintain your system. We also offer several rental packages and provide onsite startup services.
How many combustors can our site have?
ABUTEC enclosed combustors, incinerators and rental flares are designed to provide up to 4.5 million scfd in one system with the ability to add multiple systems for higher flow rates. We can accommodate any combustor need your company may have.
