Advanced flare control and digital verification platform
The flare.IQ Advanced Flare Control and Digital Verification by Panametrics, a Baker Hughes business, has a proven track record in optimizing flare operations. Our flare.IQ flare control solution reduces methane emissions, ensures high-efficiency flare combustion, and reduces steam usage in flare systems.
Now introducing our newest flare meter service capability, digital verification, powered by flare.IQ. Digital verification allows peace of mind by collecting data, gas composition and process pressure and temperature and processes the vital information through your plants distributed control system (DCS). This allows companies to digitally verify the flare gas flow meter on-line and in-process. With digital verification of your flare meter you can:
- reduce the logistical and operational cost of not building necessary scaffolding, technician support and permit application, to verify your flare meter
- minimize process interruption of operation while the flare meter is digitally verified
- reduce EHS and HSE risks of sending people to validate the flare meter
- verify your flare meter on-demand
For refiners in the United States, flare.IQ helps you meet requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency's Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) Petroleum Refinery Sector Rule (RSR) Part 63.670
Plant operators can meet daily operational flare flow meter needs while assuring environmental peace of mind with digital verification. The complete flare flow meter platform, not only reduces environmental greenhouse gas emissions but can also:
- Remain on-line while the flare meter is digitally verified
- Stay in compliance with regulations
- Reduce liability and operational costs of building scaffolding and permitting to verify the flare meter
- Decrease EHS safety risks of sending people to monitor the flare

Delivers smarter technologies for the planet
flare.IQ’s turnkey solution optimizes performance of the entire flare system. This system can help refineries meet regulatory requirements and significantly reduce the threat of methane emissions. flare.IQ also drives down operational costs by reducing steam and supplemental gas consumption.
Aligning to methane guiding principles
Continually reduces methane
flare.IQ provides real-time information on flaring and how efficiently the flare burns. With steam, air, and fuel-assisted flare systems, flare.IQ can directly reduce emissions by controlling the efficiency of combustion at the flare tip. With data, operators can identify the operations that cause the greatest impact on flaring and prioritize investments to most effectively impact emissions.
Enhances strong performance across the gas chain
Although we would prefer our customers to use Panametrics Flare meters, flare.IQ works with any ultrasonic meter and DCS system, allowing oil & gas companies to deploy the same solution at an enterprise level, regardless of the regional or local system in use. flare.IQ also supports upstream and downstream operations, including LNG facilities.
Improves data accuracy
flare.IQ ensures ultrasonic meter performance in real-time when combined with a GC or Mass Spec instrument and reviewed by a Panametrics applications engineer prior to installation. flare.IQ also offers real-time CE% and Total Hydrocarbon (THC) DE.
By providing real-time data, our flare.IQ solution offers unmatched transparency when a plant experiences flare activity, including efficient combustion, NHV, and superior reporting information. This enables process engineers and operators to modify operations to improve and reduce emissions.
