RSR Flare Monitoring Data Challenges

Requirements via the updated Refinery Sector Rule (RSR) are difficult to meet if you are not using a data acquisition system (DAS) like StackVision™.

The US EPA 40 CFR Part 63 CC (MACT CC) requirements via the Refinery Sector Rule (RSR) mandates refineries make flare minimization a priority. Additionally, it requires refineries to monitor and report when regulated material does flow to the flare and the destruction and removal efficiency at which the elevated flares operate (96.5% combustion or 98% DRE).

The RSR also requires active monitoring and immediate response to maintain minimum efficiencies, on average quadrupling the amount of required data to be collected and reported. Making the necessary monitoring improvements to comply with RSR is operation, employee and data intensive.
