What process information do you require to design a flare tip ?

For the basic hydraulic design which determines the flare tip type and size we only need the gas flow rate, gas temperature, molecular weight and available back pressure. With some additional process information such as the gas composition we can complete a radiation and noise analysis. This together with the site environmental conditions (wind speed, relative humidity, solar radiation) and any radiation and noise limitations will enable us to determine the overall flare tower height or boom length.
