  • QUESTOR TECHNOLOGY INC. Waste Gas Incineration I i ti Technology ServingGovernment, Industry and Community TOTAL 2011
  • QUESTOR TECHNOLOGY INC.Questor Technology Inc. (“Questor”) Inc is an international environmental nvironmentaltechnology company specializing incustom solutions to eliminate flaredggas. Our products enable our clients p to operate cost effectively in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.
  • WHY QUESTOR?High efficiency combustion is key to improving airquality and assisting in energy efficiency.Improvement of air quality is one of the keyI t f i lit i f th kelements to sustainable development worldwide.Incineration technology optimizes energyutilizationQTI develops ‘application-specific’ solutions p pp p
  • INEFFICIENT COMBUSTIONUpstream Refining/Petrochemical Flare pit
  • COMBUSTION OF HYDROCARBONS 99.99% combustion requires the right mix of air and fuel CH4 + 2 O2 = heat + CO2 + 2 H2O Methane + Oxygen = heat + Carbon Dioxide + WaterPoor combustion results in the creation of: Unburned hydrocarbons Carbon C b monoxide id Volatile organic hydrocarbons or VOC’s (benzene, styrene, toluene, xylenes etc.) Sulfur compounds besides to SO2 (H S, ( 2S carbonyl sulfide, carbon disulfides, f fmercaptans) + over 250 other compounds identified in the research
  • EFFICIENT COMBUSTIONWelltesting/Workover Gas processing Acid gas
  • FLARING INCINERATION Difficult to measure efficiency Measured independently at 99.99% and varies from site to site consistently Heavily influenced by crosswinds Combustion occurs in a closed allowing gases to escape chamber unaffected by winds unburned Difficulty burning rich gases often High temperatures efficiently burn producing soot deposits and rich gas. Air pre-mixed with the black smoke (BTEX, VOC, PAH) ( , , ) waste gas prior to combustion Entrained liquid droplets Not effected by liquid droplet size decrease combustion efficiency Visible flame No visible flameBased on ARC and U of A Findings:
  • QTI INCINERATORSProprietary gas bP i burnercontrol creates a highvelocity vortex yAir is naturally drawn inAir and fuel is pre-mixedRefractory lined chamber o– 1200 C stack top temperatureOptimal SO2 dispersionwith velocity temperature velocity, temperature,and effective height>99.99%>99 99% efficiency
  • LOW GROUND HEAT RADIATION Safety Facility integration Personnel safety Minimal heat radiation Eliminates fire hazard Permafrost protection Q3000 Portable Incinerator
