Flare Stacks

We have accumulated a wealth of experience surrounding flare stack maintenance which covers;

  • Lattice supported flare stacks
  • Guy supported flare stacks
  • Self supported flare stacks
  • Ground flares

We supply new and refurbished flare tips, molecular seals, knock out drums, ignitors, thermocouplers, guy wires, steam and ignitors, pipework and aircraft warning lights.

We carry out the following items of work:-

  • Flare tip and molecular seal replacements
  • Structure realignment
  • Re-tensioning guy wires
  • Flux core NDT testing of guy wires
  • Greasing of guy wires
  • Knock out drum weld inspection and re-coating
  • Water seal weld inspection and repair
  • On line inspection of flare tips using UAV drones
  • Guy wire replacement

Flare tips can be replaced using modular davit systems incorporating a wire hoist, this eliminates the need for large cranes especially when the structures are at heights of 550ft and as such inaccessible for heavy plant.

PCR regularly carry out flare stack refurbishments in many parts of the World and have the ability to quickly mobilise a specialist team to perform the listed tasks.

Chimney Repair Options:-

  • Removal of defective brick or sprayed refractory linings
  • Renewal with heat resistant / acid proof interlocking brickwork
  • Removal of defective steel liner by jacking or plasma arc piece meal cutting
  • Renewal of steel liners by jacking or flange sectioned segments
  • Repair of steel liners by over plating or insert plates
  • Re-lagging all liners is the final operation

Safety Assured

PCR employ both steeplejacks and IRATA personnel who operate and maintain the access systems, to maintain the workforce we train apprentices through the CITB facility at Bircham Newton.
