Exhaust gas analysing CH4, O2 to measure the combustion efficiency

The uncompromising solution for the environmentally friendly disposal of contaminated waste gases,

The high temperature flare (HTF) disposes of contaminated gases and air using an efficient combustion process and in compliance with the latest regulations.
Combustion of the gases at a temperature of 1000°C to 1200°C. In this temperature range, the oxidizable gas components are almost completely converted at a combustion efficiency of >99.99%.

The uncompromising solution for highest reliability and latest security technology.
