Pilot/Ignition Systems
If a flare cannot be ignited reliably and a stable flame maintained at all times to burn a waste gas or offgas, we do not have a flare, we have a vent pipe -- where heavy unburned hydrocarbons and other combustible gases can descend to grade level and become ignited to produce a flashback, a fire, and possibly a catastrophic explosion.

Two of the most critical components of a flare system are:

  • The ignition system
  • The flare pilot burner(s)

    NAO manufacturers flamefront and remote-spark pilot/ignition systems.

    This bulletin (B SIP-1) provides detailed information and illustrations of remote-spark flare pilots, widely used to ignite waste gases/offgases from onshore and offshore flares. A high-energy, "low voltage" capacitor produces a spark so powerful it blasts through ice, blows out water and burns through dirt and greasy deposits.

  • No flamefront lines
  • No compressed air
  • No overheated, damaged top mounted spark plugs
