Safe flare operation and environmental protection require reliable and accurate flare pilot monitoring. Generally, flare pilots are monitored with thermocouples that often fail due to thermal shock caused by extreme heat and vibrations during flaring events. The requirement for pilot monitoring beyond the normal life of pilot thermocouples has driven the market need for alternative methods, which requires installation of a redundant method of pilot monitoring to back up the standard pilot thermocouples.
- Flame detection up to 400 m
- Detection of hydrocarbon and hydrogen flames
- Safety and environmental protection
- On-board Pilot Loss alarm set point relay
- Pilot and Flaring signal level mA output
- Modular opto-electronic package for easy access and service
High Quality Optics
5 different optics are available to ensure the highest flame signal detection.
Heavy duty accessories
For easy mounting, alignment and focusing on the target, a heavy duty swivel mount with locking and adjusting capability is required. The optional M-4 Heavy Duty Swivel Mount offers a secure and stable mounting when combined with the M-8 pedestal mount, a steel pipe assembly with a bolt down plate to secure the M-8 to a foundation. All mounting hardware is sold separately.
Easy maintenance or replacement
The heart of the system is the Quasar 2-EXP, non-contact infrared electro-optical package which can be removed from the explosion proof housing for repairs or replacement, leaving intact all wiring and alignment of the system.
