A measurement and analysis effort to demonstrate the applicability of infrared spectroscopy for monitoring the performance of industrial flares is described. These flares are used commercially for the disposal of waste gases by combustion. Infrared spectral emissions from a standard, commercial flare were collected as a function of operating condition. Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide concentrations were determined by iteration of emission spectra measured in the 1800 to 2500 wavenumber region against computed model spectra. Included in this paper is a discussion of the analysis methodology and field test results.
