Spanish term or phrase: antorcha (petrol refining, petrochemicals)
General context: petroleum refining and petrochemical industry.

Specific context: "La planta de PEAD [any ideas about what that acronym spells out to be in Spanish?] produce, como corriente residual, una mezcla de nitrógeno e hidrocarburos que, generalmente, se utiliza para diluir las corrientes residuales producidas en la planta de BDN, enviadas a quemar a la antorcha de ACN mediante la línea 6" 200-GR1."

Is this called a flare? Or am I completely out to lunch?
