Natural Draft Low Emissions Combustor Featured in Hydrocarbon Engineering
ASHCOR and ClearSign Combustion Corporation recently announced its new product, the Natural Draft Low Emissions Combustor.
Jim Deller, ClearSign Combustion, and Andy Smith, ASHCOR, introduced the efficient combustion solution for oil and gas operators that can increase DRE while lowering NOX in the most recent issue of Hydrocarbon Engineering.
The article discusses the purpose and functionality of enclosed combustors, as well as the potential elevation of NOX emissions if enclosed combustors are not properly engineered. ClearSign Core burner technology offers a solution when paired with ASHCOR’s enclosed combustor design.
According to the article, with overall emissions, site safety and operator budgets being top of mind, the ClearSign Core Pod’s modular design allows for the retrofits of existing combustion systems, offering controllability of units previously deemed unsafe, unreliable or out of emissions compliance. It offers large turndown ratios and is designed with multiple gas streams to accommodate various pressure streams and/or process streams.
Additionally, regulations are increasingly putting pressure on low volume gas rates to minimize venting, reduce unburned hydrocarbons, and at times inefficient combustion. ASHCOR’s enclosed flare line, powered by ClearSign Core Pod, can combust daily gas volumes in an extremely clean manner, all while keeping the emergency flare system in place to function as intentionally designed.
