Introducing: Quasar 2
The E²T Quasar 2 instrument provides continuous monitoring and detection of pilot flame and flared gases from flares.
Safe flare operation and environmental protection require reliable and accurate flare pilot monitoring. Flare pilots are often monitored with thermocouples, but they 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.
The LumaSense Quasar 2 instrument provides continuous monitoring and detection of pilot flame and flared gases from flares.
Two models will be available: Quasar 2 M8100-EXP and Quasar 2 M8100-EXP Advanced. The base system provides basic flare pilot monitoring capabilities. The advanced system includes an intensity mA output, which allows the programming of multiple set points to indicate pilot flame detection and flaring status signals from the same unit.
The set point feature of the advanced unit can also be used for staged flares and will provide feedback on the staged flare status. Additional add-on features will be available for a configurable product to meet a wide range of client flare types, monitoring requirements and budget.
