Evaluating and Rating Flare Networks

In a plant emergency, process material must safely relieve through the flare system for disposal. An important step in process design and plant revamp is to ensure that the flare network can handle the flowrates and meet design constraints on backpressure, Mach number, noise, and pipe fatigue. Aspen Flare System Analyzer has the capability to solve complex network hydraulics and incorporate industry standards. Simultaneously execute multiple emergency scenarios, identify potential process bottlenecks, and validate the capacity of the flare network. This technology can help reduce capital cost by determining optimum equipment sizes, and, more importantly, assure the safety of the plant.
