Flame front generators are effective, time proven ignition systems which have been widely used in flaring applications for decades. The inherent reliability, rugged construction, ease of operation, and its economic advantages have allowed the flame front generator (FFG) to remain one of the most popular forms of pilot ignition in the industry. The FFG is easily adaptable to any pilot system which incorporates an ignition tube and may be installed up to 1 mile (1600m) from the base of the flare stack. Both Automatic and manual modes are available.
The Model 270 RETRAX is a high-tech, retractable, electronic pilot which meets the technical requirements of our clients. This advanced design allows the plant operators to lower the RETRAX pilots individually or all at once for ease of maintenance. Since the RETRAX can be lowered from grade, operators need not wait for a plant shut down to service the pilots. The Model 270 RETRAX allows customers to forego ladders and platforms all together which further saves our clients money in capital expenditure.
