The device is intended for gas combustion in the process of tank de-gassing. Its operating mode is intermittent. The flare device is ignited in an automated fashion at the moment of gas entry or, during entry of the steam gas mixture and, turns off in an automatic fashion when gas pressure decreases or when an incombustible steam gas mixture is supplied.
