- Developed in the 1970’s, Multi-Point Ground Flares derive their name from their physical layout.
- Instead of the flare flame being on an elevated structure, the flame is spread out in a grade mounted field of multiple pressure assisted flare tips.
- The tips are then arranged in stages that open as the upstream pressure and gas flow increases and close as pressure and flow decreases
- Test setup
- Background noise
- Sound power levels as a function of sonic and subsonic flows
- 10Log vs. 20Log analysis
- Acoustical efficiency
- New gas fuel skids
- Combustion vs. venting
