Simulation and optimization

Flare systems

Flaretot is a software solution designed to seamlessly carry out all aspects of flare system design, revamp and auditing. Linking directly to Petro-SIM and other process simulators, Flaretot provides a rigorous approach to the modeling of flare systems within a single, user-friendly visual environment.

The benefits of Flaretot

Flaretot allows you to design and rate all aspects of flare systems accurately and rapidly. Efficient studies can be conducted throughout the complete lifecycle of any project.

Alternative approaches would require five or six different software tools to carry out the same range of calculations as Flaretot

Key features of Flaretot include:

  • Detailed flare radiation calculations
  • Comprehensive pollutant atmospheric dispersion calculations
  • Advanced relief load calculations
  • Rigorous relief valve sizing
  • Complex vessel and system blowdown calculations
