Flare Pilot Burners (electrical ignited)

Ignition of waste gas from pipe flares, air and steam assisted flares and ground flares.
For most flare systems the pilot burner can not be accessed for service. Maintenance or replacement is not possible while the flare is in operation.
To safeguard operation, Smitsvonk’s pilots provide reliable ignition and stable burning even under the most difficult climate conditions.
