Landfill Gas Systems

For a Landfill Gas system to be functional the system must be specified and designed correctly. Flare size, turn down, vacuum and destruction efficiency requirements are critical.

The control system can be either via local PLC or via the Plant Control System.

The following illustrates some key parts that form an ABM Landfill gas extraction and collection system.

PD Blowers

For higher biogas delivery pressures ABM can provide positive displacement blowers with appropriate safety interlocks and control systems. These can include Hazardous Area requirements, acoustic enclosures flame arrestors, Methane Analysers, pressure switches and non-return valves.

PD Blowers

Knockout Pot

ABM’s knock out pots provide a reliable solution to removing free water from the gas stream. Typically they are manufactured from 316 SS and have various drainage options.

Gas Delivery Systems

ABM Combustion has experience designing high performance gas conditioning systems for your landfill engines.

The gas is chilled, passed through a coalescing filter and compressed using a PD blower.

Each project is unique and ABM Combustion will design the most appropriate gas handling system for the type of gas and its intended use.

Gas Delivery Systems


Due to the remote nature of landfill sites, landfill gas is used in engines to generate electricity.



Quality, reliability and efficiency are key parameters in an ABM flare.

Our Flares are proven and are in continuous use.

Typical points of difference include the following;

100 mm Stack Bonded 1400oC Fibre lining

  • Higher residence temperatures
  • No Exposed metal anchor pins giving long life
  • High chamber temperature giving excellent destruction efficiency

Type R Stack Thermocouples

  • Higher Specification thermocouples for longer life

Flat bottom flame arrestors - stainless steel

  • Longer life
  • Prevents corrosion of element and blockage due to trapped water

Self-checking UV cell

  • Permits 24 hour operation to AS 3814 2.24

Our engineers will review your process conditions and recommend and design a suitable flare system. ABM standard designs include enclosed flares and candlestick flares as well as portable skid mounted systems.
