To conform to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulation Subpart Ja for Flare Stack Sulfur Emissions, Shell Chemical in Mobile, Alabama installed a new port into a 24” pipeline. They needed to complete the job without interrupting production.

Solution: Conax’s Retractable Sensor Assembly (RSA)

Conax’s RSA with a Retractable Thermowell was installed into the pipe. The unit was designed for a flare gas flow stream at 375 ft/sec (256 miles/hr) at 50 PSIG at 850 degrees F. Shell was able to meet the EPA’s guidelines without interrupting production.
