Testing
Many designs look good on paper. And many claims by competitors are just hot air. If, for example, a flare manufacturer quotes a "redundant burner" -- you should ask why? Why can't the original burner take the heat?
NAOs look good on paper. And many claims by competitors are just hot air. If, for example, a flare manufacturer quotes a "redundant burner" -- you should ask why? Why can't the original burner take the heat?

Safe, dependable operation of burners, flares, thermal oxidizers, flame/ detonation arrestors, and other combustion, pollution, safety and energy control systems must be verified by testing those systems -- under worst-case conditions.

At NAO's 110-acre Environmental Research and Service Center (an hour's drive from downtown Houston, Texas) and in NAO's Research and Test Facilities (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), all new designs, new materials and new/revised fabrication techniques are fully tested and verified.

  • wind-tunnel tests simulate hurricane- or typhoon-force winds
  • severe sonic shock waves challenge detonation breakers
  • flame arrestors withstand the most severe burning-on-grid conditions
  • and ongoing inspections maintain ISO-quality, from design to fabrication of the most dependable combustion, pollution, safety and energy control systems
