What is propane tank flaring?
Flaring is the burning of waste gasses through a flare stack or other combustion device. Within propane systems, tank flaring is performed as a way to remove dangerous gasses with lower harm to the environment. It is also used in safely regulating pressure in chemical plants, as well as in handling natural gas release in wells.
Why is flaring performed?
In general, flaring is performed for safety to create pressure relief without irresponsibly venting dangerous chemicals to the environment. Flaring often occurs during the discovery and testing of processes. For instance, during the operation of a well, there can be gases that are not economical to transport or capture and are thus flared. Flaring can also occur during chemical processing. In chemical processing, flaring is usually enlisted to remove waste products or in the event that emergency pressure relief becomes necessary. Start-up and shutdown of various plants are also instances in which flaring is common.
