What is the difference between enclosed and open ground flares?

There are two main types of ground flares, enclosed ground flares and open ground flares. The advantage of having an enclosed ground flare is that it does not require supports or a stack, like an elevated flare would. The removal of the stack portion of the system allows pilots and other weather sensitive equipment, which has a tendency to corrode, to be easily replaced and cleaned. Our Baker Enclosed Ground Flare system utilizes a proven Burner technology that meets BACT (Best Available Control Technology) criteria for destruction of Methane and other Hydrocarbons. A Baker Enclosed Flare produces less than 15 parts per million Nox and 0% CO (Carbon Monoxide). Destruction Efficiencies are guaranteed at 99.9%. The Baker Enclosed Flare does not require expensive Burner maintenance like other systems available in the marketplace.
