Flaresim is the industry standard flare simulation/design application. Designed by professional engineers, for professional engineers, it models thermal radiation and noise footprints generated by flare systems for offshore platforms, gas plants, refineries and chemical plants, and predicts the temperature of exposed surfaces within range.
Flaresim flare systems design and analysis software is the industry standard and the leading software in the design and evaluation of flare systems for both onshore and offshore applications. It provides accurate modelling of thermal radiation, temperature, and noise footprints of flared fluids generated from chemical processes.
Further, gas dispersion calculations are available to model flammability and toxicity for combustion products, unburnt flared fluids, and pollutants
The application can analyze installations of any complexity, with unlimited multiple flare tips on multiple vertical, horizontal or inclined flare stacks. Users can model pipe flares, sonic flares and liquid burners using a range of algorithms. They can also enter and report data in units of their choice, and can convert data to other units at any time.
Ensuring safety of flaring is an integral part of your production system’s design and operation. SLB helps you increase the accuracy of your safety calculations with Flaresim 2021, which integrates Symmetry Fluid Engine.
Symmetry Fluid Engine allows you to accurately characterize any fluid and consumed with many SLB software products such as Symmetry process software platform, OLGA dynamic multiphase flow simulator, PIPESIM steady-state multiphase flow simulator, and non-SLB products, such as HTRI.
Together in one package, they offer powerful insight that enables you to reduce assumptions and eliminates the need to move information across different platforms. Now, you can switch between different property and thermodynamic packages, so you can achieve the right design the first time.
This comprehensive tool enables tracking greenhouse gas emissions, the use of assist fluids such air or steam to achieve smokeless operation, modelling of thermal shields, and rigorous sizing and rating capabilities for knockout and seal drums.
The new and enhanced Flaresim capabilities provide an improved user experience and a more intuitive graphical interface, reduce capex and opex, and, most importantly, identify key hazards before they occur.
Flaresim software is part of the Symmetry Flare Workspace, which provides capabilities to simulate the entire flare system in steady state and dynamics, including pressure relief valve (PRV) sizing and hydraulic analysis of the flare network.
