Optical Scientific Inc (OSI) has announced developments made to its advanced line of optical flow...
The FS-2000R is developed to ensure that refinery operators meet EPA MACT RSR 40 CFR 63.670 requirements for steam-assisted flare stacks.
The OFS 2000R can see through steam in the vapour phase, delivering accurate, quick-responding control signals, which enables the operator to match the steam flow exactly to the flare output and prevent oversteaming or overaeration, and maximise combustion efficiency. OFS 2000R has a 5000/1 turndown ratio, no pressure drop and is easily mounted on a steam line.
- Full cross-stack/duct measurement for superior accuracy.
- Unaffected by distance & pressure, moisture or opacity.
- Non-intrusive; nothing inflow path.
- No flow media high-temperature limits.
- No calibration necessary.
- Built in continuous self-test diagnostics.
- Easy installation and alignment.
- No moving parts: operates unattended – 24/7/365.
- Rugged ultra-low maintenance design for harsh environments
