Compressed Natural Gas to Propane Flare Kit (with Direct Vent Tip and 25ft hose)
Flare CNG with your PROPANE flare
Our all new CNG Flare Kit was created because of an identified need.
I received a call from a department that was on the scene of an accident with a CNG fueled vehicle, the CNG system was damaged and leaking and they were looking for a way to safely flare the cylinder. Due to local regulations and safety concerns they did not want to release it into the atmosphere. Since DOT typically doesn’t like leaking vehicles to be towed and the small leak would take a while to bleed off on it’s own, they needed a way to connect their propane flare to the high pressure CNG system and evacuate the tank.
Most Departments of Environmental Management have a three step mitigation option when it comes to working with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
1st – Direct Transfer. Physical connection of one tank to another with limited or no released product. Using the kits 5000 PSI Gauge pack with 1/4 Turn Valve and quick connectors you can monitor the remaining pressure.
2nd – Flaring, this kit provides two options to safely flare CNG using your existing propane flare.
3rd – Release to atmosphere
Our intent was to provide a kit that would provide the basic tools needed to fulfill steps 1 and 2, and not need the 3rd option. But if you do the Direct Vent Tip can be connected and full tank pressure can be vented to atmosphere as well.
What we’ve designed is a system that will allow responders to connect to multiple types of industry standard lines and fittings and safely manage the incident (with proper training). With our kit you will have the ability to connect to multiple styles of industry standard high-pressure connections and lines, reduce the pressure and flare it using a standard propane flare.
Task resources created.
Option #1) Using the Direct vent Valve Assembly with a 350 psi PRD (Pressure Relief Device) you will be able to release higher pressure to your propane flare (we recommend our 1-inch propane flare due to the stability of the 4-legged base design). The PRD reduces the possibility of over pressurizing propane equipment when flaring CNG when the pressure is kept below the PRD activation pressure.
Option #2) You will also have the option to discharge full tank pressure to atmosphere using the included 25-foot CNG hose and the NEW Direct Vent Tip (designed to be used with our 1-inch propane flare due to the stability of the 4-legged base design).
