Steam-Assisted Flares

Tornado's steam-assisted flare stacks are designed to combust heavy hydrocarbons with no smoke emissions when there is a source of high-pressure steam available on site.

Similar to air high-pressure gas-assisted flares, the high-pressure steam forces oxygen into the waste gas stream.

A steam manifold at the flare tip injects steam into the waste gas, creating turbulence, encouraging complete combustion of the hydrocarbon particles.
