Reliable Flare Stack ignition with practical tips and examples.

Functional Safety & SIS

Abstract: Smitsvonk is for almost sixty years a company that is specialized in (flare) ignition systems. The ignition systems are on the basis of a capacitor discharge, a reliable principle that allows continuous operation under the worst possible conditions, year in year out. Moisture, dirt, water and oil do not have influence on the operation of the ignition system. The ignition systems are used for a host of industrial combustion processes, ranging from such small-scale applications as the ignition of a baking oven to the ignition of burners in pulverised coal-fired power plants. The focus of attention is the petrochemical industry, on- and off-shore, for flares, burners and incineration systems. A complete test facility is part of the Smitsvonk workshop in Zoetermeer (NL) overview: Ignition burners from 5 to 750 kW Pilot burners (for flares) from 5 to 50 kW Ignition units: – Electronic, 2, 4, 8 or 16 joule capacity. – Explosion proof executions. – Flame front panels. – Mobile/portable. Sparkplugs and torches: – For burner ignition. – For direct flare ignition. Control systems for automatic ignition Service, start-up and commissioning.
